Memento Bricks

3D printed modular mementos of meeting

Memento Bricks are modular, 3D printed, physical leave behinds that I use in place of the usual business card.

The system uses preexisting Duplo bricks as a base for the Duplo compatible plastic fascias that can be hot-swapped depending on the context. I might not always want to give my mobile number out or I might just want to give someone my Twitter address.

Whilst they may in many ways be much more impractical than standard business cards — you're not going to fit many in your wallet — I was keen to create something that truly represented me. I love that fact that people can use them and then take them apart to build other things.
