2012 New Year’s Card
Greeting card emailed to friends, family, clients, and colleagues; each recipient got one of four versions. The inspiration for this one came from a 19th century British poster advertising iron mine work (as seen in Justine Nagan’s documentary film, Typeface) (January 2012).
Dimensions: Illustrator file: 8.5 inches (w) x 5.5 inches (h); final JPEG: 612 pixels (w) x 396 pixels (h).

Version A appears in the book Type Rules!: The Designer's Guide to Professional Typography, 4th Edition, by Ilene Strizver (Wiley, 2013).
