Designer Christmas Cards | December 17, 2003

This time of year, designers all over the globe crack open their vector graphics programs and create their own Christmas Cards. Now this is something I’ve never done myself, but I had a few hours to kill tonight so thought “what the heck”.

A Christmas card design I came up with tonight

As this is my first effort, I’d be interested to see what people think. I’d also be interested to see your own Christmas Card designs.

I’m not great with Freehand so I thought simple would be the best way to go. Looking at Jon’s they are very similar, but to be honest, Jon’s is much better.

I started doing it last year. Two objectives in my mind: 1) be economical with ink; 2) come up with a relatively interesting design.

I also made some variations to slightly personalize my holiday cards.

The red characters are from a collaborative font once available from typotheque, and snowflakes are from Chunk’s “Spunkflakes”, if I remember correctly.

This year I “drew” a very vectorish card:

This time, I’ll be shifting hues around to get some variations.
