Happy Holidays… 2006

Kitemath, a Chicago design firm, commissioned me to design and letterpress print a holiday card they would be proud to send their clients. The only parameter given: the design needed to incorporate a green ink custom mixed to match a box of overstock A7 envelopes.

The illustration was made using wood type circles for the ornaments, metal type periods for the strings, the ferrules are capital letter Us from Univers, and I set the text in 10pt. ATF Century Schoolbook.
