12 cool business cards with headshots

I have rounded up 12 awesome business card designs with headshots. Most of the time, these type of designs are used by service oriented folks such as property agents and quite frankly, most of them are not pleasant looking. Fortunately, there are some designers who have created outstanding designs using headshots as the background.  They usually used a lot of graphic elements in the design so that it looks modern, rather than too business like.  If you like to try this for yourself, take a look at some of the designs below to get a feel on how your business card with headshots can look.


#1: Split face business card by Ailton Henriques

A very nice design that splits the face such that one front appears on the front and the lower half appears on the back. It is modern and has an interesting idea that will let people remember you.


#2:  Business cards that has iPhone design by BEΔSTY DESIGN

Using the design of an iphone to show off the headshot is a great idea.  The overall image doesn’t seems to be out of place as people are familiar with seeing faces on an iPhone screen.


#3: Caricature card design by Saulius

If you do not want a real headshot, you can always try a caricature replacement. It looks great on a business card as another form of graphic element, but with your face as the foundation 🙂


#4: Elegant and funny business card by Ivan Tolmachev

I like the overall elegance of the look. However, what really caught my eye is the 4.5 stars that is beside the headshot. It is a funny thing to rate your own self but it is a great conversation starter.


#5: Character headshot drawing business card by Jarad Johnson

One idea conveyed by this particular design is that you can have headshots of your entire team on the back of the card if your business has a small team. It is great way to show your team members as well as have some fun with the design.

I liked the background and the use of a tinted color for the headshot. These subtle changes creates a mix of modern and retro look for the card.


#8: Black and white business card with headshots by Kristina Fick

I loved the black and white classic book that this business card is using. Although the picture used is big, it doesn’t come across as cheesy.


#9: Different headshot business card

Not sure who is the creator behind this design but the whole series is great. Rather than just a normal picture, the card owner uses different postures and expressions to create personalities for the card itself. Well done.
