Holiday Card.

Art Direction.

Graphic Design

 

 

I was asked to design the holiday card for the local Stantec office party invitation in 2018. The card was designed to reflect the high design reputation for this architectural office. I used the latest in technology to create the cards. Laser cut metallic paper with the party theme in words and icons. They were a big hit and many people hung onto the card as a memento.
