Business Cards that Mimic the Look of an Old Zenit Viewfinder

Greek silkscreen printer Manolis Angelakis was recently tasked with designing a new set of business cards for close friend and photographer Alexandra Stamopoulou. Given her profession, he decided to create a stylish card that emulates the viewfinder of an old Zenit camera. The simple but effective design was silkscreened onto sheets of transparent vinyl.

    Very nice! Looks ‘duâh’, which is ancient The Hague (NL) slang for expensive… ;)

    This has been done before, and I think featured on this blog?

    very nice, definitely stands out. even if it has been done before, what are the chances a potential client has more than a couple, let alone one of these types of cards?

    Ok, not to be a d*ck, but if this is supposed to be a zenit (without the H!!!) viewfinder, then why:

    – are the edges straight
    – is the card clear, instead of coffee-brown
    – is there a split viewfinder
    – corner markers wtf?

    The Zenit-E was my camera for years (and I still have it). I will recognize a zenit viewfinder when I see it. This is not it.

    Exactly my sentiments. I own a Zenit EM and the viewfinder is nothing like this.

    Well, not very original, but nice anyway ;-) My main concern is the cost of producing each business card. Do you think it is worth the price?
