Frankly we’re so in love with this card design that we’re not sure if knowing what inspired it detracts from, or adds to, its allure. First, the particulars: two-color letterpress printed on recycled thick card stock, with a custom-made embossing stamp to give it added texture and a patina of official sanction.
Now the inspiration: Lee Harvey Oswald’s forged selective service card! As business card inspirations go, that’s pretty obscure.
The cards are for the staff of V Communications, which also designed them. Each employee was photographed wearing vintage clothing and Photoshopped into the card template.
And for the amateur conspiracy theorists among you, type in the web address on the card to add yet another mystery to Oswald’s legacy.
