Toggle Switch by Aric

Toggle switches, or toggle, are something that has become increasingly popular since the takeover of mobile devices, so much so that they have made their way to computers. Dribbble has had a recent playoff on toggle switches with feelings in which a few designers have created some very imaginative toggles that are beyond the basic yes/no, on/off switches that you see, these toggles have feelings :). Which is your favorite?

Standard 3.5 x 2 business cards won’t cut it these days, especially in the design world. I can’t tell you how many business cards I throw away (or just avoid grabbing in the first place) because it’s plain old black ink on a white 3.5 inch by 2 inch piece of paper. It’s almost to the point where it’s an annoyance to see them. Thankful there are a few people in this world who share my same views and have done something to destroy that old standard.

Below we’ve gathered 25 unique and unconventional business card designs for your inspiration, hopefully after seeing these you will go burn your current standard/boring business cards to spare us all.
