New Series: Obsolete Business Card Project

The final days of Daisy Yellow’s ICAD challenge coincided with a milestone in my personal one:  a long-awaited promotion at work. Beyond new expectations and responsibilities, this also meant…new business cards! So I found myself most of a box of now-obsolete cards with my old title, which coincided with discovery of a box of business thank-you notes left behind in a drawer by a former occupant of my office, also now obsolete. (The notes, not the former occupant — I’m sure he’s fully functional, somewhere.)

This serendipity provided the inspiration for the Obsolete Business Card project, hereafter known as OBCs. They’re at once larger and smaller than ICADS, and seem to work best when the two parts are distinct yet conected.
