Interactive business cards. Cards that let you play and fondle, peek and read, cards that will stay on your desk for a few days before you finally decide it needs to be filed in the awesome cards file.

Akufen is all about its employees and ambience—a team that functions more like a group of friends than working colleagues. All the names are on the same card, showing synergy and a sense of community. Each card has its own envelope which is cut so that the proper information is shown.
