Well, I promised some Christmas typography, and here it is! I am fully immersed in the land of Christmas card design right now, and between that and the snow that’s trying to come, I’m definitely feeling that Christmas spirit! I’ve been designing our family Christmas cards for years now, and it’s the design project I most look forward to each year. In addition I also design a more corporate one to use for a certain someone’s company, which you can see below. See the little characters peeking from within in the negative space!! In case the picture is too small, there is a dove’s head tucked in the S, a Christmas tree poking up into the A, santa in the O, and the others you can see in the second photo.
This is the more personalized version that I created for our family to send out. The word PEACE becomes PEARSON’S! I like trying to hide surprises behind flaps or folds when I can. One of my clients nicknamed me “The Queen of Origami” for my penchant to create elaborate folds in corporate tradeshow invitations. Paper is always more exciting with some folds thrown in! I’ll have some more Christmas cards to show you once this year’s batch comes back from the printer.
