When you’re out networking, you could hand someone a plain old flat, rectangular piece of paper with your information printed on it. But wouldn’t it be much more awesome (and memorable) to hand them a 3D-printed figurine of you as a superhero, with your email address on the bottom?
That’s what the folks at the Amsterdam interactive design agency Resoluut did. Each employee illustrated his or her own superhero character (or had a colleague draw them) — the superheros represent a specialty or characteristic of the person. The illustrations were then sent to 3D printing company 3Dwergen to render in 3D and print. With just 20 copies of these unique “business card” per employee, “We’re running out fast, so we’re starting a new batch shortly,” says Resoluut art director and partner Micha Commeren.
