“I wanted to create a design that would make people stop and take a second look; something that could be proudly displayed for the holidays and kept as a memento long after the season was over.
I hand-drew the branches to create a frame for the card that balanced with the beautiful typography. I wanted to create illustrations that felt modern and not traditionally winter-looking to help them stand out. I’m drawn to simple design, beautiful typography, and timeless style. If I had to pick a holiday card to send, this would be at the top of my list. I love it!”

“I wanted this design to make people feel one with the earth: happy, relaxed, and cool. I have always loved the spirit of Christmas and how it truly brings people together. It would be nice if people acted so loving all year round. I am attached to beautiful things all around me every day. I try to bring that into my work. I pay attention to detail and love balance, white space, great typography, and perfect color combinations. It is as simple as that.”
