This year, a friend who works at the local animal shelter asked me to design a holiday card for them. Of course I agreed!
They sent me some photos and text, and I gave them a couple of options. I’ve said it before, but I enjoy the freedom of working for free. There is an unwritten rule of “I get to do what I want to do (for the most part).” I used colors from their new website and had some fun. I mimicked some of the family holiday cards I’ve seen recently with the animal portraits. I think of this design as the Brady Bunch design. 🙂
We also ended up adding a decal for the card.
I hope it helps them raise money and find homes for the animals! It made me feel good to help. What more could I ask for?
My designer takeaway: A free project every now and then can be freeing and a creativity boost!
