Here is my business card
2009 | Interviews and Illustrated book | ink on paper
Business card collection for imaginary occupations. From a series of interviews on the desired works, a collection of business cards for imagined works. A playful expedient for a dialectic between real and invented, customary or unusual works.
I realized how was common the discomfort in speaking about work: many people around me were doing ‘new jobs’, not socially known. They were usually working in very precarious way, sometimes doing many jobs in the same time to earn a living.
So I offered a service: business card design for imaginary jobs. Something to give when forced to do public relations. In exchange, I asked to the card owners to write a description for their imagery job, and one of their real one.
- Some of the business cards for imaginary work:
Lorenzo, food taster; Ruggiero, butterfly farmer;Marco, mattresses tester (and jumper); Dea, magical spices and brew creator; Sara, geographical map drawer; Michele, shooting stars hunter; Noemi, ghostreader; Caterina, 007; Claudia, coockies taster.
