When Felix first created these cards seven years ago, it was already a different time – people were using paper more than they do now. These days, we can meet someone and instantly type their numbers into the smart phone. Done.
Except, then it’s in there.
It’s in that vast array of information we call our phones.
Now, try handing someone a Personal Calling Card, and you’ll find that exchange of information has a totally different trajectory and effect. It’s kind of like going from black and white to color. It moves from an exchange handled as perfunctory to personal. The art on the card tells the receiver something more than a bunch of numbers, it adds a different level of appreciation and memorability. Charm too. It’s also a virtual versus tactile thing. The person with the card in their hand feels the qualities of the paper, it’s weight, color, texture, and the rounded corners. Handing someone a card is a multi-sensory experience!
Maybe the recipient with your card goes home and places your card in front of their computer or on their bulletin board of meaningful-and-beautiful-things (Do you have one?). They will probably also put your contact information into their smart phone. And that’s ok, the positive impression was delivered.
Felix just gave our Personal Calling Cards a refresh by adding over 20 brand new illustrations! We also kept some favorites from the past as well. You can see the entire collection here. Which one(s) speak to you, or of you?
