Christmas Cards and other Holiday Graphic Design Inspiration

Posted by Raffi on November 23, 2010 in Printing

With Christmas right around the corner, we truly are in store for some great new graphic design works for print. I love this time of year and I especially love all the wonderful Christmas cards and Christmas posters that start to litter both our houses and our streets. The whole graphic design community seems to perk up and create some truly dazzling and spectacular Christmas creations for print at this time of year.

In the spirit of Christmas, I thought it would be nice if this year, I showcased and shared with you some of the great graphic design works that have come out of Christmas in the past. I know that some of you are probably even already scrambling to come up with designs for your company’s Christmas cards this year. Hopefully, this Christmas graphic design and print showcase will give you some inspiration and motivate you to get those cards finished on time.

Light up the Christmas spirit Christmas Cards

This set of beautiful Christmas cards was created by Gary Chew in 2009. He came up with a rather unique design concept.

“Design based on a lamp cover concept. The card can be fold into a triangle shape and there will be a glow stick provided to hang between the card. So that it will glow in the dark and the light will passed through the die cut hole.”
