Mark Zuckerberg visiting card

A business card is an essential part of every businessman. Mark Zuckerberg, Larry Page & Steve Jobs have printed many business cards for business partners, investors and clients. On the mode to get rich, these business qualities could be lost. But luckily, their early age visiting cards have lived and now everybody can see legendary plan of the billionaire business cards.

Yes, that’s a well-known business card of Facebook creator “I’m CEO, bitch”. Brief and clear.

As the Facebook boys started dealing gradually with real business experts, a reputation for liveliness spread through the valley. "It's Lord of the Flies over there," one management told an executive recruiter. Zuckerberg had to be watchful which business card he handed out at conferences. He had two sets. One easily identified him as "CEO." The other: "I'm CEO...bitch!"

Back in the site's initial days, Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg "acted like he was head of a pirate ship," handed out industry cards that read, "I'm CEO...B**ch," and infrequently got up before noon.

These are just some of the revelations from David Kirkpatrick's novel book on Facebook, The Facebook Effect: the Inside Story of the Corporation That Is Connecting the Sphere.

Andrew 'Boz' Bosworth is right in that I displayed the business cards after the first reform (sans "the") of the site. I felt it was not only suitable, but iconic. The title of the card that he refers to was respected to the random quotes that would replace at the site's footer such as "I don't even know what a quake looks like." We were small sufficient at the time that it was a small task to ask each worker for a custom footer and numerous of them had a lot of amusing with it.

As for Mark's, it's no secret that Mark watched up to Steve Jobs at the time. When Aaron Sittig & I were the only creators in late 2005, he would hold his project meetings with us in that classic "violent" Steve Jobs-style. It was during one of those conferences where I remember him chief uttering the phrase, "I'm CEO, bitch..."

Limitless designs are mentioned to as "happy accidents" and this would be a prime instance of that. Because of the association that Zuck and I had at the time, I felt relaxed having fun with his tagline.

So, quite merely, it was a phrase I typed in that stuck. 

Feel free to fish for the meaning if my clarification is a bit bland and boring, but therein lays the surprise of design. Sometimes the greatest part of any piece of work is the meaning persons pull out of it.

Finally, during my tenure at Facebook, the fabled cards were pulled & subsequently swapped. In this creator's view, these superannuated cards were an outstanding representation of the corporation values at the time. Their replacement reflected the modifications a young Facebook needed to go over in order to be where it is nowadays.
