Custom Holiday Card

Holiday card mimicking look of hand-knitted sweater with snowflake pattern. Typographic illustration and graphic design by Carolyn Porter of Porterfolio, Inc.

Carolyn hadn’t expected the illustration would require that level of complexity, but as she created the stitches, she realized each one needed a slight variation in color to capture the look of real yarn. Dozens of slight color variations soon became hundreds of slight color variations.

The back side of the card has a reversed knit pattern — just like an actual sweater. A faux garment tag includes social media and contact information, and a size tag proclaims “XL ideas.”

“I love the way you’ve completed the concept circle by making the sign-off look like the manufacturer’s tags!”
