iPhone Holiday Card

I don’t do holiday cards every year, but when I do, I usually try to make it relevant and unique. Since I’m not a big fan of those holiday letters people like to send, I decided to compromise in 2008 with a card idea that Kimberly suggested. With all of the hype surrounding the iPhone, we thought it would be fun to try to make a card based on the application icon touch interface.

Once the idea was planted, the design really took off! I decided that in addition to building custom app icons that represented events in our lives over the past year, I could also borrow the Apple iTunes store concept and describe our “apps” as though they were listed in the app store. Hoping this was as recognizable to everyone as much as it was to us, I even built a mock-up of the window you might see if you were browsing through our installed apps. The result was a hit, and it will be difficult to top this design in years to come.
