Seasonal greeting cards are getting more innovative and experimental with every year that goes by. Stylesight’s graphics team have selected some of the strongest and creatively inspiring holiday season cards in the market at the moment.
The fun element seems to be a big focus for many of the cards this year with hand-sketched doodle visuals and crafted fonts featuring strongly. Ornate pattern use and infill graphic detail is another powerful creative mix that has produced some stunning fresh visuals for seasonal greeting cards.
We are also seeing a massive rejuvenation of the traditional letterpress printing techniques with pattern and pictorial illustrations featuring heavily. Twisted vintage references and styling has been another big trend in holiday greeting cards, giving a clever updated feel to this market.
Other design highlights include some reworked signage visuals with a touch of humor and the use of clean typography in a debossed visual state.
