The theater industry is very specific and much to my (pleasant) surprise has a very broad array of business card styles associated with it. I expected the designs to be like that of the real estate industry in terms of a fairly standardized look and feel. But, what I found was that this industry is clearly comfortable allowing their creativity on the screen or stage to bleed onto their business cards.

Notice how the various specific crafts within the film and theater business are represented in their card designs. Photographers include design elements to show their specific trade. Dancers and film crews do the same. My conclusion is that if you’re designing for a client in this industry, then you have a very open-ended project in front of you, so enjoy it and have some fun!

Do you have any film or theater business cards to show off? Or did any of the above simply captivate you, or rather, were there any you purely disliked? I’d love to hear your thoughts!
