Christmas cards 2014

Selection of my Christmas card designs 2014

Selection of my Christmas card designs 2014

I have been working on Christmas in some shape or from since July, and am really proud to finally show the designs I have made for Christmas cards this year. Including geometric winter animals, typographic jolly songs and and old favourite from Christmas past. I would love to hear what people think! They’re finished in various ways, including hand hole punched boarders and special pearlescent paper. These are available to buy online at danmackey.bigcartel.com and also in person at the Brighton Artist Open House where I’m selling at 11 Rugby Road weekends from 29th Nov – 14th Dec. They’ll be lots of posters, prints, gifts and festive treats! Also keep an eye on the website as it expands in the new year. Good Typography Christmas Card 2014 Cool xmas design Christmas animals by designer to buy

Alternative Shy Christmas Cards

I’ve crafted Christmas cards in same style as my Shy poster series, that featured different printing techniques and subtle colour changes to show a subtle, typographic message.

The worst thing about these cards is that they don’t photograph well! The Christmassy message written on each I’ve got to a perfect amount of visibility (through lots of trial and error).

The first card is fairly traditional with the lyrics “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” on the front in… white. The minimal, effortlessly cool style of the white on white is perfect for those that like a twist on standard Christmas cards.

The other cards take their inspiration for the Pogues song Fairytale of New York. These ‘shy’ cards have had a Christmas drink and are now a bit sweary.

You’re a bum
You’re a punk
You’re an old slut on junk
Lying there almost dead on a drip in that bed
You scumbag, you maggot
You cheap lousy faggot
Happy Christmas your arse
I pray God it’s our last

Christmas Cards 2012

I’ve been busy making Christmas cards with a unique little feel.

My Yeti Christmas cards use clean, minimal design to show off the furry coat he has on. Each one has to be cut out individually which means each looks unique and appears to have a different personality. These aren’t just Christmas cards, you’re adopting a new family member when you receive these!

A limited number are available to buy now on danmackey.bigcartel.com. See how they are made in the gallery below:
