During a clean out of the Messy Collective offices, we found over 1,000 business cards that were going unused, due to staff changes and a focus on making digital connections with our customers. We decided to put them to good use and promote Messy Design in a different, creative way.

We considered the key elements of our service offering at Messy Collective—smart problem solving, clear communication, big ideas and real results—then transformed the business cards into an un-skippable video that highlighted these aspects of our brand.

The finished product was a fun, motion graphics video created using frame-by-frame photography of our business cards. The video was a huge success and went viral shortly after its release. It won a Vimeo staff pick award and appeared on mainstream blogs including Gizmodo.
