A rectangle is the most common shape for both personal cards and business cards. It is a safe standard that communicates stability, robustness and confidence. A square conveys essentially the same message, just enriched with personal and unique meanings. A square business card is considered non-standard. So maybe it is the right shape for you?
As we remember well from school geometry classes, every square is a rectangle, but not every rectangle is a square. Both quadrangles are organized structures and good foundations for the business card designer to fill with well-distributed elements.
But it is the square that is a symbol of excellence. It is in a square and not a rectangle that you can inscribe a circle, which immediately invokes associations with a compass rose, the Vitruvian Man, the four corners of the world, or the four elements. Incredibly harmonious, square used to be the favorite figure of architects and urban planners who designed edifices and city squares.
A square business card may communicate a non-verbal message that you work in a creative industry, or you are simply a creative person. Designers, employees of advertising agencies, various artistic professionals often opt for square business cards.
However, the message of the square may differ depending on the context. If you wish to graphically emphasize that your company holds dear such values as equality, objectivity, equal treatment for all, and that it is less formal than average organizations, a square business card will be an excellent choice for you.
The same may apply to an individual – after all, we all continuously build our personal brands.
The non-standard format speaks for itself, but you still need to squeeze in all the required information on both sides of your square business card. It includes your full name and contact details, probably your job title, company, logo and possibly also a slogan, claim or motto.
A designer of a square card will most likely locate those elements symmetrically along an axis for the most intelligible effect.
This is another good use for such business cards. The universal 65 x 65 mm format offered by Chroma is perfect for that. A swing tag business card can be punched.
