GIVE THANKS FOR DESIGN INSPIRATION
We knew we wanted to design 2016 Thanksgiving Cards, but weren’t quite sure what that would look like. Then along came some Thanksgiving design inspiration!
A few weeks ago, we were shopping in Marshalls and came across a fantabulous autumn themed coffee mug (we must have over 100 coffee mugs, but you can always use one more), and of course, we had to purchase it.
While drinking organic Columbian coffee from this new mug, we were inspired by the colors. We used the AdobeCapture App to capture the colors we like best from the mug, and then saved them instantly to our Adobe Illustrator library on the Creative Cloud. Voila. The design for the 2016 Thanksgiving Card, “Give Thanks and Eat Lots and Lots and Lots” started to take shape!
From there, we knew we wanted a textured type of font and went on the search for just the right one. One of our favorite font resources is MyFonts online, and they never cease to have just what we need. We landed on the Eveleth font family by Yellow Design Studio – Thanks, Guys!
The rest is, as they say, design history.
Be sure to share your bounty with family and friends this Thanksgiving season.
