CHRISTMAS CARDS

DESIGN & LAY OUT

These sessions will focus on design and lay out / composition. What better chance than to use the Christmas Card genre as a springboard? 

 

We need to consider size, style, weight, asymmetry / symmetry, margins and spacing of design elements.

 

This workshop is for the intermediate to advanced student. The main focus here is on the placement of letters rather than their excecution, but I will also be demonstrating and making Christmas cards on the go. In other words, you will need to have a few lettering styles on your palette in order to use this workshop in practice, but if you’re just in it for the ride, you’re welcome to tag along.

 

My own Christmas cards have leaned towards the melancholic over the years , but well designed Christmas cards have brightened it. 

 

I will be sharing my collection of cards and envelopes with you also. My collection spans over 30 years and I am lucky to possess some real gems that I can will share.
