here’s my sorry attempt at graphic design. it was just a card i created based on a drawing i did of my sister…for my sister’s birthday. it was a rush job (no excuse though, ha ha) but she liked it…that’s all that matters, right?!!?? it was fun trying to come up with something though. i suppose that’s further proof that maybe i would enjoy doing something else for a living…or on the side, ha ha.
i think this will turn into a yearly thing but i decided at the very last minute to design my sister’s birthday card yet again. i had a blast doing this and i will once again cop to the excuse that i only did this in a few hours…although maybe that was too much time! i’m not very well versed in typography but i’m really fascinated with the subject. those more in the know are probably very aware of the influences i have so far in this little homage. i think i’m going to try and design my own christmas cards this year instead of buying.
i took advantage of the fact that greeting cards can be displayed both ways. thematically, the design works better vertically but i think it’s more appealing visually when viewed horizontally. which do you prefer?
