gapingvoid Multi-packs

8645503566_f3db6c0bd5

Harold Jarche, a favorite Canadian of mine, just posted this photo of some of his new gapingvoid business cards that just arrived in the mail.

As I’m publishing these with my old friends at Moo Cards, when you order a set, you can have more than one design per pack.

So you can hand out a different design, dependong on the person, depending on your mood.

Handing out the same card every time gets old, anyway.

Quite clever, no?

The funny thing is, received wisdom says that buisness cards are passé, that everything is digital now.

But that is PRECISELY why a proper business card works so well: it’s real, it has molecules, it lives in the actual world.

Whereas everything else is so easily lost in a blizzard of computer pixel.

And if the card delights and inspires people (something most business cards aren’t designed to do), even better.

We’re having A LOT of fun with this, I hope you’ll check it out, thanks.

Comments

  1. I love mine Hugh – The Market for Something to Believe In – but never dared use the Corporate Hierarchy design – I think I might go a mix pack because some will get a good laugh.

    I ALWAYS get a very positive response to my current Hugh Card

  2. Like you, Rob, I passed on the company hierarchy card, as I thought it might offend if I inadvertently gave it to a potential client. It’s still my favourite though!

    I’m getting great comments on my cards so far.

Testimonials

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

Seth Godin
Best Selling Author

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

Tony Hsieh
CEO, Zappos

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
