Here is a little something I whipped up after reading this article on minimalist Christmas cards just in time for the holidays. I made a little challenge with myself to make a design that could possibly go on a Christmas card using only keystrokes and a few shapes available on Microsoft Word.
The snowman’s body is made out of an “8” with “*” buttons and “/ \” for a carrot nose. The little hat was made using the shape creator in Word, which kind of felt like cheating, but the two little snowmen looked bald without their hats in the end.
All in all, I’m pretty pleased with this little project. It’s a great idea parents and teachers can use to get their kids and students interested in graphic design, while also being creative and learning how to use Microsoft Word tools.
Anyways, I wish you all a happy holiday season.
