I love business cards, the feel you get when you are handed one for the first time, the tactile sense of firmness when encountered and overall seeing how a person chose to represent themselves on a small form of paper. I’m an avid collector of peoples’ business cards and noticed recently that my collection is mostly sitting there staring back at me. So I decided to dive into them and every Sunday I’ll be posting a small selection of the hundreds I have collected over the years.

This week, I’m starting off with sharing some of the cards I collected from my peers during my time at the Ontario College of Art and Design. Few people left an impact on me with their ability to Art Direct, Design and Illustrate. Their business cards have been cherished in my¬†possession¬†over the years. Most of these were acquired during our last year in university, circa ’06.
