Nerdist Bidness Cards: THE RESULTS

The challenge was dropped…and YOU responded. The results were way beyond my expectations. I mean, there is some seriously kick-ass art-tasticness here. I received 158 submissions, all of which I will use when I order my new business cards from moo this week.

If you don’t want to view these as a slideshow because you’re a mover/shaker type with a lilt in your step and a neverending stream of important time-sensitive destinations, you can view the whole set here.

Many of you didn’t include anything other than your email addresses, so it would be great if you would go into the Flickr comments for each of your pieces and leave any info you want the world to know about you.

I sincerely can’t thank you all enough. Your talent is only exceeded by your generosity. Web Culture RULES!!!

    I just received your note in the mail today. That was really awesome of you to hand write a card . Not many people would take the time to do that. And that’s why you’re ace. Thanks again.

  2. sarah says:

    the 3x1minus1-nerdist one is mine — it’s in the pool twice, it must be that good. ^_^

    fun challenge!

  3. Dan says:

    yeah this was a really cool thing you did.
    there were so many i liked.

    btw i can already see many of these as t shirts?? because you’d have to admit…that would be awesome.

    I did the google one:

    hope you like it.

    I dont have a flickr account or id say it there.

    this was a cool contest. though, it was the type where everyone wins like in the special olympics.

  5. Jen says:

    Love it! It was definitely fun to contribute and it gave me something to do. Awesome.

  6. smartbunny says:

    With moo, you put info on the back, so the front can just be a picture. Just saying. To the haterz.

  7. Baz says:

    there should be one of him puking up a bunch of technology & big sophisticated words.

  8. Julia says:

    They all look amazing! 😀 I wish I had known about this sooner. I would have made one. It would have been amazing to have my art on a business card!

  9. Charlie says:

    Man this event was really cool.
    anybody else like the Devils Whisper Album cover?
    all me baby

  10. Deltus says:

    Some of those were just awesome. There seemed to be a bunch from the one person, though. Who was that person, and how many did they submit to you?

  11. John Gundich says:

    Thanks again for doing this, Chris. It was fun to contribute. Enjoy handing them all out.

  12. Lisa G says:

    Card43 with the handwriting exercise is just brilliant!

  13. PoeNevermore says:

    Gotta say the space invader one was pretty badass..but so were like all of them! Top pics are the space invaders, the jedi-Sith Chris one, the nerdist_card_cjp (it has the Mooninites in the font!), 3x1minus1-nerdist (love the green and blue) and Chris_Hardwick_card, the red one with the little white bracket (it’s like you write your stuff in there, depending on who you give it to)

  14. Falula says:

    wow you can really tell you just accepted everyone who applied… there was only one i liked, two at most i would have used. the majority are amateurish, provide no info, and some are even offensive. i wouldn’t even call them business cards. sorry your fans suck.

  15. Randee says:

    why are you making business cards without the help of the business card guru joel bauer???

  16. KV says:

    Nice flipbook action as well 😉

  17. will says:

    @radd: I made some but I’m actually 6 and 1/2
    Neat designs everyone, I like this circuit board one

  18. gigglechick says:

    all of these are keen designs! I love my moo cards… nice job done by everyone selected! *clap clap clap*

  19. Radd says:

    …alot of those cards look like they were drawn by a 5 year old.

  20. smartbunny says:

    Moo cards are very cool!

  21. Hunter Boone says:

    I emailed the address with a psd version of mine, don’t want you to waste money on a pixelated business card.

  22. Patti says:

    Wow, those are all really amazing! I’m kinda sorry I didn’t try to make one. That’s so cool that you got such a huge response. Well done on everyone’s part.

  23. Hunter Boone says:

    That’s a better resolution and version of the card I sent you.

  24. Hunter Boone says:

    Thanks for using my design, sorry that it looks like it turned pix-elated… :(

    My vote goes to the old school microchip card
