Special Editor’s Picks of The Stay In Touch Business Card Challenge

The Stay In Touch Business Card Challenge is Minted’s first challenge in the business card category and all of us here at Minted have been itching to see what Minted designers come up with. Minted designers have always pushed the envelope when it comes to original design and this challenge proved to be no exception.  We were so impressed with all of the designs! As with every challenge, Mariam (Minted’s Founder & CEO) and a group of Minted design staff came together to pick out the Special Editor’s Picks and the Runners Up in each design category. For this challenge, the categories are “Best Business Service”, “Best Personalized Calling Card”, “Best Business Card or Calling Card that incorporates a photo”, “Best Creative Professional”, “Best Food”, “Best Service” and “Best Home & Garden”. In addition to the Special Editor’s Picks, we are also proud to announce the “Customer Favorite” as voted by Minted customers!

Best Business Service:

Fileshare by Maddy Nye. We absolutely love the use of bold colors and the half-tone dot pattern to create the stacked file folders in this design.

Best Personalized Calling Card:

Vintage Treatment by Julie Green/ Up Up Creative. The bold initial jumps right out in this design. We also couldn’t resist the circle and stripes combination!

Best Business Card or Calling Card that incorporates a photo:

Call My People by Ann Gardner. Here, we are rewarding the clever and funny copy that Ann Gardner wrote.  Plus there is nothing cuter than imagining what a chubby baby would say if they were able to talk.

Best Creative Professional:

i like to write copywriter card by Chica Design. We are smitten with the rustic handcrafted typeface in this design, not to mention the clever “Lorem Ipsum” text in the background. A creative design that celebrates people who like to write.

Best Food:

Sizzling Kitchen by chocomoccacino. We have a penchant for contrast and this design has just that. The vintage style typography is made fresh by using modern colors and clean geometric illustrations.

Best Service:

Love to Learn by Nocciola Design. The vertically positioned pencils on the backer make us want to go to school again. The glyph on the “a” adds a subtle personal touch to the typeface.

Best Home & Garden:

Circular by Nocciola Design. We simply adore the elegant typeface on the front.  The backer completes this design with a mid century yet modern pattern.

Customer Favorite:

Minted customers voted for Clean Cut Florals by Alethea and Ruth. This design has clean and modern typography on the front, perfectly complimented by an unexpected bold and beautiful floral pattern on the back that feels like an updated version of William Morris’ botanical patterns. Simply perfect for floral enthusiasts.
