Today’s #rainybrandingtuesday is going to let the images do the talking.
It may sound a bit of a cliché but contrary to popular belief, trust me: especially when you attend a networking event outside of your comfort zone (ie. clients’ not industry-related) most people would expect you to give them a business card.
Business cards can be:
- something to look at if embarassed
- a way – for people like me – to remember names
- a way to realise cruelty-free whether that person is someone potentially interested in your services
but above all, a way to showcase your committment to business.
I won’t go into the why a good design and brand is paramount but you can refer to some of my past posts on the importance of hiring a pro or on the relevance of creativity in branding.
What I wanted to show you is some of the good cards I’ve been collecting over the years. This is instalment oneand more will come!
