Unique postcard design

Some postcard designs are just so unique and cool that you don’t know how to group them.¬† The following is one such design. The designer tries to relate geometry and typography in his work, resulting in something that is fresh and rarely seen. Don’t know how to translate this to postcard printing though.

3D postcard design

For a more dramatic effect, check out these 3d postcard designs. Pop up postcards might be common but it is still hard to find one where the design is slick and elegant. Below are 3d postcards that are really well done and show how a well executed 3d design concept can look like.

Wooden postcard designs

I like the following postcard design because it cleverly uses a different materials. Again, goes to show that materials makes a lot of difference to our designs. If we can experiment different materials for different design forms, we might be surprised by the kinds of innovations that we can see.

Foldable postcard designs

Similar to the 3d postcard designs, this foldable concept  gives you a three dimensional view of the card. However, this is better than the 3D postcards because the receiver can actually play with it, making it more interactive and memorable : )

Some companies used postcards as marketing materials. If tastefully done, these packing postcard designs can be quite attractive as well.
