Cool business card designs | creativebits

You want a new business card, don't you? Of course. This is the most important element of your visual identity. It's the first thing people see when they meet you.

Here is a collection of cool business cards to inspire you. Most of them are from the Business Cards flickr pool, some of them from Ads of the World.

Here’s the Flikr Pool - some good & some not:

What do you wish you'd been told before you left school?

Ask The Readers: What do you wish you'd been told before you left school? - Lifehacker

It's the fair month of May, which means countless graduates will walk across a stage and receive their diploma in the coming weeks. An educator at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics in Hungary writes in:

Some of my students will finish the university this year and leave the dormitory. We've spent 5-6 really fine years together and I'd love to give them some tips before they enter life. What is the thing you wish you'd been told when you just left school?

I could fill a book with things I know now that I wish I knew then, but instead I'm putting the question to you wise lifehackers. Got a life tip to share with graduates everywhere? Share it in the comments - and congratulations, graduates.


6 Month Action Plan

1. Make list of books to read & start reading

2. Target software tutorials (if you don't use it - you lose it)

3. Make new stuff!

4. Update portfolio (& show it off!)

5. Research - whatever interests you...

6. Classes & Workshops - take ‘em

7. Network: with people in the field, attend AIGA meetings & design conferences, look up successful IDD grads (Facebook?)

8. Keep eyes open for new ideas (study design, trends, developments)

9. Get out of yourself… breathe, stretch, meditate, self-care, dance, relax, sing…

10. Keep in touch: with friends & professors

Possible Results from these actions:

-Build confidence
-Stimulate creativity
-Personal growth
-Economic growth (?)
