Landscaped Business Card, Tur & Partner, Jung von Matt

With all the business cards we’re being inundated with this week (the downside of trade-shows), its nice to find business cards that stand out from the crowd and add a little greenery to your day. Here’s a clever and useful little business card design that perfectly expresses the mission of the company it represents: landscape architecture firm Tur & Partner. Add a little light and water to this seeded business card and in a couple days, you’ve got yourself a professionally landscaped miniature garden. Seeds embedded into the card sprout right through the holes in the plan printed on the card. This creative card was designed by Jung von Matt of Germany.

    This is an amazing design but im trying to work out, once you water this card does it not start degrading or get all wet and soggy?? and if it does not do this, is the cardboard it is made from have a plastic coating of some sort, which may not be environmentally friendly?? thatnks heaps looking forward to your reply.

    This is a card. This is a card with a business purpose but it is not a business card in the traditional sense. It is a marketing piece. It’s a “Chia Card” like the old Chia Pets you can get for people you don’t know what to buy for. I like the idea as a promotion. I don’t think it works as a long-term source of contact information. I have more to say but that is on my blog and not for me to take up any more space on this one.

    Such an excellent idea. I am assuming that the plants are cress, as it would be a bit weird if you managed to grow, like, an oak or something…

    I would definatley remember the company of the person who gave me this card…

    Nifty. Actually, I think this is ‘effing brilliant for a landscaping company. I vaguely recall having seen a glimpse of it in the past.

    All of the other blogs referring to this call it a direct mailer, not a business card.
    Which is it?

    It won’t save the world, but this is very cool…
