Describe the brief from the client
ebolaindustries was the first viral Italian agency; taking their name from the deadly virus Ebola.
Since its inception in 2006, ebolaindustries' professionals introduced themselves with a pseudonym: mr white, mr blue, mr orange, mrs green, mrs silver.

The brief was to create a piece of visual identity, easy to hand out, impactful and true to the nature of the brand and its unconventional positioning.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to develop a business card that would transmit, immediately, the viral nature of the agency and its attitude.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The new ebolaindustries' business cards emulate lab slides. In addition to the pseudonym, and the image of the Ebola virus in the reference colour, there are also the names of the real professionals, but these are visible only under a microscope.
Materials used:
Perspex 2 mm.
Address and logo in digital screen printing.
Name laser-engraved, font size 1.6 pt. (0.5 mm).

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
These business cards represent an experiment in their own right, because of the type of printing, material choice and micro-size of font used. Hence, the outcome represents a unique piece of work. The response so far is stunning in terms of visual impact and its reputation within the Italian advertising and marketing community.
