Merry and Bright by Jasen Melnick, Fizz and Katie Major

I like very much the retro look of this hand-lettered Christmas card. The curly elements add a whimsical feel to the holiday often times centered around our youth.

Marco Palmieri

Another way to draw a Christmas tree, not the traditional way. :) A bit scary from my point of view.

A Festival of Carols by Kezia Widi

I really like the use of the gradients in this one–very well combined. And the wide variety of expressions on the children’s faces really gives you the feel of children singing carols.

Noel The Reindeer by Chris Prior

Very simple and flat design with no gradients or effects, but I simply love the creativity Chris used to drew the Christmas ball on the reindeer nose.

Giulia Ripamonti

Now we know why Santa has such a big beard. :) Inspiring use of typography.

Can You Find The Hidden Claus? by Rod Hunt

A new take on “Where’s Waldo”. Can you find the hidden Claus? Click on the image below to see the details more closely!

William Boulay

Although there aren’t many details in this poster, those small details from the chair and the boys foot show how even simple designs when well-implemented can give a lot of movement to an image.

Fernando León

What music do you think is Santa listening? :) He looks very relaxed.

Dushan Stojkovich

There is one word that best describes this poster: glossy. Well done Dushan!

Corinne Massacry

Remember when I said that a great background can dramatically change a design? Well I think the background changed a lot this Happy New Year card.
