Design agency CATACI is launching an online platform for business cards templates, students are welcome to join this open call and win 150€!


Design agency cataci.com works between Japanese clients and European designers. As part of a bigger project for Japan’s largest printing company, Cataci is looking for graphic designers for a project by Vanfu, one of the largest printing companies in Japan. They will launch an online platform where its users can download design templates for business cards. They will work with various designers – domestic/international designers and illustrators, and also some students.


Your mission is to create “templates” for business cards.
So we are looking for talented students – ideally students who already have some work experience.
– We would like you to design 3 different types of business cards (all 3 cards have their backsides as well).
– It can be black&white, or with colors.
– You are free to choose any themes, but we prefer to have something not too simple – not just font and layout – but with illustration or some graphic in the background.
– The size of the 3 different cards will be like this: 1) 55x91mm, 2) 60x60mm, 3) 28x70mm.
– Please create the 3 cards by using the following example (in case there is not enough space, possible to remove some information):
