holiday postcard 2018

Every December I send a handwritten postcard to my clients, friends and family. I started the tradition when I moved to Atlanta to stay connected. This year I needed a break from the computer, so I crafted a holiday postcard featuring handmade snowflakes.

Once I created a few flakes that I liked, I scanned and edited them in Photoshop. I experimented with various layouts and type treatments before settling on my final design.

In the end, I selected the typeface Cantoni Pro and edited the letterforms in Adobe Illustrator to create customized type. I added the textured type effect in Photoshop before sending my design to the printer.

I hope you have a happy holiday season and a wonderful new year!
