12 Stunning Abstract Business Card Designs for Inspiration

While some think that business cards will become obsolete in a “paperless” world, the fact remains that every brand identity can’t do without them. It is an integral part of every presentation toolkit.

And let’s be honest, we still love traditional paper-based items. Smart, crafty business cards are one of them.

Business cards are one of those mediums that skillfully ignore the limitations imposed by their relatively small size. Despite occupying only 7 square inches, they can contain not only vital contact information, but also have space for lavish and intricate designs. From primitive minimalistic ideas to bright skeuomorphic ones, you can stumble upon just about anything.

However, what has caught our attention recently is abstract art. As a rule, the design is centered around the company, featuring specific things related to the business. And abstract art is, well, abstract. There are no clear messages inside. You need to dive deeper to find them.

Today, we showcase a dozen beautiful business cards with abstract art for your design inspiration.

Bar à Phô Business Card by Jenny Lelong

As you may have noticed, the design of “Bar a Pho” has a subtle eastern charm. The reason is simple – it was crafted for a Vietnamese restaurant.

The abstract illustrations are not just random. They are used to portray the main dish of the establishment – the soup Pho. As a result, the business card looks amazing and conveys the right message.

Perch Business Card by Hue Studio

This business card oozes an art deco feel. A beautiful embossed effect with a gorgeous, almost royal green color increasingly enhances the overall impact. It looks good, even in white. Though, in this color option, it feels ordinary.

Illustrated Business Card by Daniela Gonçalves

The front side of this business card strikes you as an example that includes nothing but a scribble. However, you can actually make out facial features here. The illustration is bizarre, yet in a good way, adding a touch of individuality to the project.

Materia Branding by Paprika

This is where minimalism meets line art. The result is intriguing. The card has a relatively neutral design. Still, all those typography-inspired artworks that mark the front side give their own zest, and it is vivid proof that sometimes less is more.

A Different View

Abstract art always draws attention. It makes us think and encourages us to find hidden messages. It bears a particular gamut of emotions, to say nothing of its powerful creative atmosphere.
