Designing Christmas

It's beginning to look a lot like christmas...
With presents and wrapping, ribbons and tags,
champaign and cards about to spring forth...

I have been designing my own christmas tags to go with my christmas colour scheme
of red, white and silver. (I will post my tags up very soon!)

I found some fantastic christmas cards online for inspiration...

paper coterie (my favourite)

Are you designing your own christmas cards and gift tags?

design process made visual

Most clients and non-designers generally don't understand what it takes to create effective design.
The sketches, headaches, long nights and coffee all go unseen and unknown.
The design process always varied from client to client and job to job, but the basic design process is always the same.

I found this fantastic project on behance which aims to show the design process in a visual way, which it great for visual thinkers like me!

Do you think this represents your design process too?
