animated + letterpress coaster cards

December 23rd, 2011 by

Emily & I each work at really great architecture firms here in Knoxville, Tennessee. We were very lucky this year to have the opportunity to work on our firms’ Holiday Greeting cards. You may remember my post from last year when I showed off the e-card I had worked on for Cockrill Design & Planning.  I have decided to stick with the forest animals teamwork theme to create a nice series over the years.  A family of deer have come together to decorate their woodland home.  This was a challenge for me, as I had very little support on the technical side and after several online tutorials I  learned Flash well enough to animate the scene.  I am very pleased with the way it turned out – turn on your sound and enjoy this slice of holiday excitement ENJOY!

On the flip side to an e-card Johnson Architecture asked us to design and letterpress print a unique Holiday card that would be mailed out to all their clients, colleagues, and friends.

Our design incorporated a letterpress printed coaster that was attached to a flat card printed in silver ink.  After Christmas has passed we hope the coasters will still be used and enjoyed by their recipients well into 2012.  They were all sealed up into a red envelope with a matching label.  We are really thrilled with they way the turned out. Next year we hope to have the opportunity to work on these and other business’ cards too!

Which one do you like better – the animated e-card or letterpress coaster card? And which do you think is a stronger marketing tool for touching base with clients?

Thanks for checking out our work!  Happy Holidays + Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
