Since designers really can't run down to the Hallmark Store and pick up a packet of Christmas cards, the holidays have become an opportunity for them to show us what they've got. It's neat to see what can be done with a postcard.
I get a kick from the Christmas postcards from slimaq designer Aleksandra Woldańska-Płocińska. Sure, they're put together with wonderful graphics. But it's great to see Aleksandra's personality come through in every card of the series. It reminds me of how designers can create identity. And how, when they've hit the mark, designers don't even need to include a logo. -1-
Here's the plan: our mission is to scour the web and bring to you the best postcard design ideas as we find them.
We should probably have a page full of disclaimers.
Instead, we'll just say the three that come to mind: 1) beauty is in the eye of the beholder, 2) we don't own these images, so if you like the design you should contact its designer and 3) we have a dog in this fight -- we're sponsored by magnetbyMail a maker of postcard magnet mailers -- but we'll work hard to show all inspiring postcard designs we find, no matter who printed them.
If you'd like to suggest a great postcard design, please let us know. We can't guarantee that we'll include it, but we'll definitely consider it.
And if you have other suggestions for us, we'd love to hear from you.
