Epos & Visa Have 100 Worldwide Artists Design Credit Cards

Over at NOTCOT, I spotted a post by Rice Candy about some artist designed credit cards. Unfortunately there was no link to the gallery of 100 designs created for the Japanese financial institution, Epos. After some scouring around, I finally found it. So, now I'll share with you some more information and designs as well as a link to the site where you can see all 100 designs for yourself.

Visa and various international designers from all over the world have launched 100 beautifully designed credit cards for Epos International of Japan. Styles include everything from photography to hand scribbled graffiti by such artists and designers as Friends With You, Touma, Julian Picaud and Tristan Eaton.

The project is a collaboration with the Bleed Design, Visa and Japan's leading fashion stores Marui Co. The cards launched this past September 2008 and will be available until October 2009.

Here are several of my personal favorites:

So many wonderful Epos Cards introduced!! Thanks for your sharing. They are beautiful^^
Since the last years of 20th century, we are shocked by increasing sufferings of various kinds. Unusual natural disasters like global warming, earthquakes, hurricanes, tsunamis all took place recently. Moreover, global financial systems are also collapsing.

It is reasonable to conclude that there must be something wrong. The survival of human beings comes to a critical point. Each person cannot by himself reverse the situation.
However, if all of us can unite together, we can get a very strong power to create our future.

Here, we sincerely invite everybody to join us. You can do any good deed per day. For example, you may donate one
dollar, look after your friends, pray to God, or chant the name of Buddha or mantra. Everything beneficial to any
creatures is welcome.

You can write down your good deed here or in your diary and pray love and peace of the world. Since our loves live
here: parents, spouses, children, siblings, friends, teachers, classmates, puppies and kitties. We love them and ourselves. Come on. Let's take actions now.

ps. You can also invite your best friends to join us. We can encourage each other and gain more power to do. If you agree with us, you can also endorse for the Declarations for Human Rights of World Citizens and Peace.
Just sign your name and make a good wish for the world. We will present the result to Mr. Ban, the Secreatary-General of United Nations, so that the United Nations can understand our supports and wishes.
