Bombay Bakery’s edible visiting card: delicious stuff


Full disclosure: both the client and the creative team behind this project are friends of mine. Pia, the client and Anisha, the creative deserve kudos for this simple yet effective visiting card.

These won two pencils at the One Show – a gold pencil in the ‘Corporate identity – ‘Single’ category, and a silver pencil for the ‘Promotion’ category. Meticulously planned and executed stuff. Visiting cards for divorce lawyers, chiropractors and such are common entries in award shows. Most dramatize the profession – a card that splits in half for a divorce lawyer for example. What I liked about it was that it went beyond linking it to the profession – it created unexpectedness and interaction with the consumer.

Agency: Dizzy Design, Team: Anisha Sarin, Ashutosh Karkhanis

  • Not an innovative idea in itself….as an edible card has been done before but I don’t think it’s for a bakery. Though the card has very short shelf life….it does create high memorability. As the product is not an FMCG but rather a service where product experience forms a major part, this visiting card even if consumed cannot be forgotten. Definitely not just very creative but also an effective piece of communication.
