If you’re in the market for some new business cards, something a bit different, something memorable to hand to someone, then look no further than Made By Oomph.
They are far from simply another card printer, they seem do be doing something quite unique in creating a wide range of high quality plastic cards.
Even though I had a good idea of what I’d ordered (based on their gallery) I was still pleasantly surprised when my order turned up. Straight out the box the cards immediately have the presence of a high quality product. The smooth matt finish of the “brilliantly-crisp white plastic from Italy” feels great to hold, and the 0.76mm thick plastic has a nice weight to it.
The cards feel much more substantial than your typical card, not too heavy but a good quality to them. Something that feels valuable, and something you’d certainly be remembered for.
I’ve been given larger or thicker cards before, and they can be a bit annoying, they don’t fit anywhere and tend to go unused or forgotten, but being that these are no larger than your bank card they fit easily in your wallet or card holder.
If you’re still not convinced, head over to grab a sample pack and build a design of your own.
Happy birthday Inspirational Geek, 3 years old today!
Another year has absolutely flown by. A fantastic and enjoyable year, and all down to you guys – the readers, subscribers, contributors, and more! A huge thank you to anyone and everyone who has supported and promoted Inspirational Geek, inspiring many more ideas, posts and projects along the way.
The past 12months has brought us a mini series, a new photography project, Olympics creativity, childhood heroes, another mini series, interviews, a new clothing brand, evermore creative April Fools’, and one of my personal favourites the Guardian’s open journalism advert to name but just a few.

Phew, another 12months have flown past. Inspirational Geek is two years old today!
The past year has included some real highlights, including two features on the WordPress homepage as Freshly Pressed (once back in March for this, and once just last week for this). Other favourites include some ground breaking projection mapping, some fantastic and award winning product design, and naturally some travel to Europe (and slightly further afield!).
I just want to say a huge thanks to all the readers, subscribers, comment-ers, and anyone who has inspired and supported the content on here. Here’s to another busy year!
Happy birthday Inspirational Geek, 1 year old today!
Huge thanks to everyone who has supported this past year by reading, recommending, subscribing and even contributing to this blog.
Inspirational Geek has come a long way since that first post 12 months ago. From the likes of Eurocucina in Milan, to award winning product design, fantastic graphics and even some especially geeky moments. It’s even offered a platform for me to guest write articles for a couple of other sites too, Designers Couch and more recently The Floating Frog, which has been fantastic experience.
Who knows where it will be in another 12months, I may even be partying with llamas.
After realising that my favourites folder was bursting at the seams and brimming with wonderful images I come across but never seem to use, or do anything with, I began to think how could I better catalgoue them?
The (Inspirational) Geek Catalogue of course!
Having seen such folk as Fullbeard do it with “Fullbeard Likes“, I’ve taken the plunge and started a new spin-off blog of inspirational and creative images, a more effective method of keeping track of the things I find. A visual list rather than keeping them tucked away under a favourites menu and forgetting about them. Generally it’s things that don’t tend to warrant a full post on my main blog here, but deserve more than a quick ‘of the moment’ mention on Twitter before they are then lost forever. My own personal version of Ffffound if you will. Enjoy.
Hi there, welcome to my new blog.
My name is Gary, Gary Thornton, and Inspirational Geek is the inspirational and creative ramblings of myself. In essence it’s things I like, things I find and things I’m doing, all of a creative and inspirational nature no doubt.
So, who am I? I’m a Product Design (BSc) (Hons) graduate with freelance experience in product and graphic design. I’m currently on the lookout for further freelance projects, as well as internships, work placements and permanent employment opportunities.
