New Year's greeting card
culture gives you wings
Calligraphy + Design
Copyright Sarah Hartwig
The calligraphic piece simply consists of one single word: 'culture', though you'll see it in many different languages. Close inspection reveals not only German and English, but also Finnish, Turkish and Spanish are here to be discovered. Eventually it merges into the abstract shape of wings.
The hand lettering turns out to be the centerpiece and heart of the overall design, offering an original and profound visual solution. Additionally, the sensitive color choice vastly defines the entire look and feel. The design is immersed in glowing gold, rich blue, and a little bit of frosty white to create a solemn and cheerful mood.
