I am not really good about things like LinkedIn, networking without meaning, and boring business cards. Yes, I’ve seen that scene from American Psycho. But I first created custom cards to be a bit flashy. Little did I know, printing cards with 52 unique faces was going to be a bit expensive. But I got a little extra money in and decided to create my own deck of 54 (counting the Joker) business cards. I also had a couple decks of regular-faced cards made. This allowed me to get my card into the hands of an interested party via an adorable magic trick.

The character on the front is named Pierre. He is either a banker in a beret or a poet in pinstripes. I created him as the perfect alignment between creativity and strategy.
