I’m Dori, a 26-year-old Artist / Art Director from Toronto, Canada. I love new and original ideas, and I’m always challenging myself to fight the “everything’s been done before” state of mind.

One of my favourite hobbies is trying to make creative business cards. You might have seen my previous cards here on Bored Panda which were created entirely out of crayon.

This time I thought to myself: “What’s the most simple business card design you could possibly make?” And I realized it would have to be blank. But then how will people view the information? I decided that using light is a fun way to do it – especially since we all have a flashlight on our smartphones nowadays!

To compliment the card design, I kept the information simple – I only kept my name, since you can easily find me on Google.

When handing out the card I like to give a subtle hint: “Here’s my business card. If you’re bright enough, you’ll figure it out!”

The card is created with 3 layers of cardstock, with the middle layer being laser-cut. Each card takes quite a while to put together!
