Ever since i was young i remember looking at credit cards or debit cards or any bank card for that matter and loving the graphics they put on them. Each one was unique to a person for such a long time, it almost formed part of their identity. As i got older and got cards for myself i developed attachements to my favourite credit card graphics. Here i look to share some of the most inspiring, artistic and beautiful bank card designs i have seen.
Im a huge fan of american express credit cards, platinum credit cards, gold credit cards, limitless credit cards. You know the deal. Any bank account that falls under those expensive credit card brackets you can expect to find info on here.

Credit Card Comparison: Gold Vs Platinum

Todays credit card comparison compares teh credit rates of a gold credit card vs a platinum credit card.
Seem like an obvious choice?
Think again!
Some banks sucker you in by promising platinum benefits through name. In reality your worse off. Check and compare these credit cards!

A platinum credit card from Nordea, very traditional design.
Credit Rates
  • Free text/email bill reminders
  • 100s of discounts with top brands
Representative Example: If you spend £1,200 at a purchase interest rate of 16.56% (variable) your Representative APR will be 16.6% (variable).

Public Bank Asia. Gold account credit card. Last time i posted this it was well received. Lets see how its credit rates do in a credit card comparison!

Receive up to 56 days interest free on new purchases if you pay your statement in full and on time every month. The minimum repayment on this card is the highest of:
2.25% of the amount you owe on your monthly statement;
£5 (or the entire amount if less than £5);
any interest, account fees and default charges that have been added to your account since your last statement plus 1% of the remaining balance.


Some things to ponder there over this credit card. How do the credit rates do for you?!

  7. Discounts on top brands are only useful if you really buy those high-listed brands.
    I myself don't want to pay 100 bucks for a t-shirt with a brand logo on it, so it won't be of any use to me.

  16. Gonna have to go with the gold. If things are variable, like that, I can usually play games and figure out how to pay less.

  21. The second card, even before I read the name or blurb, immediately struck me as an Asian design. I can't explain it.

  22. here's the thing... if you carry a balance, your interest rate will eventually be sky high regardless of the color of your card. lesson: pay off your card every month, kids!
