When photographer Mark Meyer wakes up every morning in Alaska, the first thing he notices is the view through his room’s windows.

Creative Minimalist Business Card Design

Developer Boris Smus came up with this super minimalist way of sharing his email address, Twitter username, and website URL. He writes,

I’m ordering a personal set of moo mini cards. These are small, two sided prints. One side contains an image, and the other contains contact information.
