I have a deep affection for fun holiday cards. In fact, I'm usually pretty busy this time of year creating holiday images for my clients. I love the whole process - discussing ideas, doing the shoot, and the post work. My goal every year is to create something that will stay on the refrigerator past New Year's day. This year, we went with a CSI theme. Specifically, CSI: Miami. That show is so over-the-top. Extra credit goes to Horatio Caine (played by David Caruso), as he somehow manages to open each show with a ridiculous one-liner. This video on YouTube, showing over 7 minutes of his poetic dialogue, will probably have you in stitches. It inspired us this year. Here's the front of the card:
Some people might not get the CSI reference right away, so we included an image/tag line on the back:
We had a great time producing this year's card, and are already thinking of ideas for next year. In the meantime, I've posted new work that I've done for my holiday clients at austinchristmascards.com.
I hope you have a wonderful holiday season and an incredible New Year!
