I developed two new cards as a response to all the turmoil going on around the world. We wanted to remind people that despite all the chaos, we can choose to focus on positivity and resonate this intention out to all those around us.
Reflecting on the idea of light as a symbol of hope and enlightenment, I decided to combine both the modern concept of lights through illuminated light bulbs, but with a slightly retro touch for a hip graphic designed style.

The result is our newest e-card, "Illuminate the World", set against a starry evening sky, with light bulbs illuminated with the words: Peace, Hope and Joy, coming to life to shine brightly with Christmas greetings.
The world needs a big injection of these three elements right now.
The idea for our new Peace Ribbon e-card came from a trip to the store to buy some simple ribbon for presents. The news from that day was still going through my mind - another day of senseless violence and unrest. As I sat fiddling with the ribbon between my hands on the ride home I could see the word peace forming. It was only when I arrived home, I realized I had the first sparks of a card in the making.
I chose white doves for this e-card as they are a classic symbol of peace and a candy cane white and red striped ribbon to inject some uplifting holiday spirit. There is nothing solemn or mellow about this card. The animated doves dance and fly about to an upbeat tempo whilst holding red ribbons in their beaks, to spell out the word “Peace” against the backdrop of an earth globe.
Wishing you peace and joy - and that these e-cards bring smiles to the faces and the hearts of your loved ones all around the world.
