I made a card for my Uncle’s birthday. I was in a clean, summery mood, so a made a super-simple and bright birthday card. Here’s the front:
And on the back (leaving room for writing, which I did with a brown gel pen):
Done in Illustrator, with ITC Avant Garde Gothic. Happy birthday to my uncle! And yours too, whenever his is.
Mother’s Day is an annual celebration. This year, I made my mom a mix cd of songs I thought she might like. I made liner notes; the proof of which is below:
I made these using Photoshop and Illustrator. The script font is Emily and the font used for the song list is ITC Avant Garde Gothic.
Our special mother’s day activity was going to see Star Trek on its opening weekend. In honor of this sacred and special event, I made a commemorative mother’s day card:
It was a one-sided deal. I made it all in Illustrator. The font is Huxley Vertical. I harvested the art from House Industries’ Vectagrams, part of the House 3009 font family.
A couple other headlines for the card that I considered:
“You boldly go where no mother has gone before!” (Sounded dirty)
“Mhaaaaaam!” (Too obscure?)
Star Trek was awesome, by the way. A perfect mother’s day treat.
