2010 Holiday Spectacular: No. 12

Are you looking for a lovely, modern, airy delight? Look no further than No. 12 Holiday Joy by Annie Clark.

To begin, the word ‘joy’ is just stunning. I love the way the ‘j’ and ‘y’ are outlined and then the outline of the ‘o’ is repeated over and over in white and then once in yellow. The word actually looks like what it is describing. And the rest of the fonts complement ‘joy’ perfectly. The crisp modern headline goes well with ‘joy’ and the script of the family name is a nice change of pace, but is still in keeping with the clean and crisp theme of the card. I think I feel more joyful just from looking at this understated masterpiece–a nice way to start the day, don’t you think?
