Describe the challenges and key objectives
Solution: The backs of employee business cards become the media to communicate Umbrella's design thinking. It is philosophy explained at first interaction. But the purpose of having different designs on backs of the cards is also to get an insight into the card receiver’s thinking. Senior members of Umbrella offer first-time clients the option to choose the card they want. The choice gives us an insight into the person’s thinking and preference of designs - something that guides us as the relationship progresses.

Describe the brief from the client
Brief, Target Audience, Background: To communicate Umbrella's design thinking. The primary target audience is existing and potential clients. Secondary: Peers from the design industry. Umbrella operates in a market/environment where design is still an upcoming discipline and the understanding of the importance of design is still in its nascent stage.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We sent the designers and writers out of the office and asked them to look at the world. They came back with understanding and examples of design that were transferred onto paper.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The market, if you can call that, was a rather limited one: Our existing and potential clients. I guess the success can be judged from the fact that most wanted multiple business cards. And yes, we have cut down on the number of slides in our credentials presentation.
