Alt Summit NYC: Business card collections

Every time I head to a conference I get a TON of business cards from very lovely and talented people. I keep many of them for future reference, but really some get lost/torn up by my kiddo. SO, why haven’t I taken photos of my past cards? It seems like I should. Take photos, link, and collect my cards on Pinterest. Bam. Need to look up someone? I got it all organized. All of these ladies (and a couple of dudes) worked hard to create these mini masterpieces, and I want to remember them.

My first round of bizz cards are from Alt Summit in NYC 2013. A crazy collection of cool people. See a card you like? I highly suggest wandering to their site. Because I always see patterns/similarities in things… I had to organize the similar cards into groups. So many different ways I could have organized these, but these were my favorite.

1. Stuff Steph Does 2. lisa dreissig 3. Kathryn Murray 4. Life I Design 5. Maddie Richardson 6. Design Life Kids

    I am drawn to the musturd / brown ones.. but maybe that's because I've been into the vintage look lately! A great idea to keep them organized.

  • LIndsay on said:

    What a great idea – to document the cards this way – you will never forget where you got a card from! I am going to have to start doing this with cards I receive!!

    Thanks for sharing!
