When I just got started with my passion for calligraphy and lettering the Christmas where about to get started, so I decided that I wanted to create my own Xmas cards, to send them to friends and family, or even to spare them around the city. I wanted to have a better quote than “I wish you a Merry Christmas” and after a research and think about different sentences which fit with my idea of Christmas, I finally came out with this one: At Christmas, the best gift is your smile. Would you give me one? (I’ve made it in Spanish because I was living there at the moment I’ve done the project) Then I started to make letters, making sketches and more sketches. I wanted to do something elegant but representative of Christmas. So I thought that would be a nice idea make a composition with all the words in the shape of something regarding Christmas, Christmas balls. I’ve tried different compositions till I got the correct one with the best readability, the result was quite satisfying and very appreciated for all my relatives!
