Stay ahead of competitors: send 3D-printed heads as resume #3dthursday
Perhaps the business card has become too stale an institution, as the company who produces 3D printed cube calling cards we shared a few weeks ago is in agreement — here’s a modest proposal from non-traditional marketing guru Floyd Hayes, via 3ders.org:
NYC freelance creative Floyd Hayes, the former Creative Director of Cunning London, the world’s first specialized guerrilla and non-traditional advertising agency, now owner of Creative consulting business, has come up with an idea of marketing himself.
He had his head scanned in the new Makerbot shop in Manhattan and get them 3D printed. He then ordered some 3D printed replicas of his head and sent them to clients and potential employers, instead of resume, business cards and brochures.
