murmure: concrete business card



french design studio murmure designed these concrete business cards for themselves.


‘playing with the notion of scale, we created a set of business cards made of concrete. this material, so characteristic of our environment, was enhanced by using the smallest and most refined communication support. the refinement and the technique required for the typography highlight the harshness and the roughness of the used material.’  – murmure
