Each year the design firm sends out cards that are created to celebrate the holidays. They serve to establish informal channels of communication that extend beyond the professional. Once again this year a typographic approach was used. Red and green were used to capture the spirit of Christmas and the alphabets spelling out the year were used to signify the New Year. Together, the number of letters for the year twenty twenty-one were arranged to create and emulate the Christmas tree symbolically and to capture the spirit of the season (both Christmas and New Year).
