Samford University Christmas Card

When designing this Christmas Card I was inspired to try and avoid clichés as much as possible. I wanted to make a card that eschewed the typical red/green color scheme and Christmas iconography. I was instead drawn to Samford’s characteristic lamp posts, and from there made the connection to the lamp post at the entrance to Narnia. Samford, being a Christian university, is extremely fond of author C.S. Lewis, so this connection fit perfectly. I then sought to illustrate Samford in a similarly snowy, elegant, Narnia-ish way.
