November 2, 2018

 

01. Overlay a photograph

Camila Soto’s beautiful collection of greeting cards includes this warm and rustic seasonal card with the words ‘Feliz Navidad’ and a Christmas tree loosely hand-drawn over a photograph of forest ground.

 

02. Be inspired by your surroundings​

Alaa Abuamra’s intricate design for York University is inspired by the school’s iconic architecture. Vari Hall along the bottom and reindeer antlers along the top provide a frame that is filled with Christmas motifs to convey the spirit of the holiday season.

 

03. Get clever

These astute Christmas cards by 1331 Design replace words in well-known festive phrases with applicable coding and fonts.​

 

04. Illustrate a Christmas carol

Erin Jang’s card illustrates the well-known carol The Twelve Days of Christmas with a fresh and playful mixture of bold and colorful typography. Everybody sing along!

 

05. Be inspired by other styles of art

Inspired by vintage signs and calligraphy chalk art, Alisara Tareekes’ Christmas card is hand-drawn then composed in Photoshop. The figure-8 flourish in the center depicts a Christmas with a placed above the scrolling ‘Merry Christmas’ text.​

 

06. Create an ornament

Hank and Maxwell’s clever Christmas card is made from leather in the shape of reindeer. Merging the idea of sending a greeting with a special gift, it curves and folds into a reindeer sculpture that can easily perch on the shelf.​

 

07. Use flat design

Hank and Maxwell’s clever Christmas card is made from leather in the shape of reindeer. Merging the idea of sending a greeting with a special gift, it curves and folds into a reindeer sculpture that can easily perch on the shelf.​

 

08. Say it with symbols

Luca Milani’s cards combine his love of fonts with the charm of Christmas: brackets become tree branches; asterisks become snowflakes; and the figure 8 becomes a very portly snowman.​

 

09. Express your business

ERA Creative’s cards for illustrator David Birtwistle uses pencil shavings to represent a Christmas, reflecting Birtwistle’s business and skills.​

10. Make an interchangeable pattern
