    Does this mean the Death of Business Card Design?

    Oct 16

    Nameo remember that name, because is going to KILL the beloved business card, that opportunity to create a visual and real (in your hand) impact to your business contact, will be gone forever!
    Ok its not quite that dramatic!
    There is a new Apple iPhone Application called Nameo, Nameo is a virtual business card exchanger for the iPhone. Basically you hold your iphones together press a button and you have exchanged your details.
    Only iPhones that both have Nameo can exchange details.
    Ok, so initially I thought what a great idea, then I realised that its going to take away the livelihood of the business card! The business card is going to be jobless!
    I personally think we will always need the impact that a well designed and printed business card gives.
    But what do you think, is this the death of the beloved business card?
    Is it really a threat or will this be like the “paperless office” we are all supposed to have!

    Calling this the Death of the business card seems slightly exaggerated. I see this as a complement – and also rather limited since it works only on one platform.

    Not convinced about it replacing the business card – people still like to have something they can hold, and, as Matt pointed out, it’s only for the iPhone. I still doubt a cross platform version would cull business cards, though!

    The Nameo application, just as Tapulous’ FriendBook, is a great way to exchange information. I would like to sit this business card application being compatible with other phones (Nokia, Samsung….) and services (Sprint, T-Mobile…).

    i think they will fulfill slightly different functions – the business card as we know it is not just about the email address and phone number on it but is a visual indicator of the giver’s identity, purpose, ethos etc…
    i think the two could probably co-exist quite nicely. maybe i’m just a starry eyed optimist!
