These iPhone Business cards imagined by web designer Frederic Tourrou are causing quite a mixed reaction around the interwebs since they first surfaced on Thursday.
The popular consensus from many vocal critics insist that the addition of rounded corners is essential to getting the design right. Advice that Tourrou has already acted on. While most commenter's on The Fancy seem to like the idea — some have not been kind to this Beasty Design original.
"Pretty cool.....except he looks like a murderer.... At least wear something better than that if your headline is Hire Me" one commenter wrote.
Another commenter who goes by the handle skyhookv3 wrote "Death to the User of those."
It's obvious that the lesson here is to never post any of your original design ideas online or you might end up with your work splattered across the globe for millions of people to see. It just might get you noticed — by both the lovers and the haters. A risk worth taking in my opinion.
Some chose not to be so brutal when commenting on Frederic's insanely clever brainstorm.
"Luv it, very smart. This card leaves an impression, which is the whole idea of advertisements. The buyer will surely pick up the card time and time again!"
Like it or not — I can see iPhone business cards quickly becoming the next big thing.
