Here we are with the last blog of the year!
This last year seemed to have flown by with all you amazing studio artists creating such fabulous cards for each and every event, giving our users many more expressions to celebrate with!
Our last blog features all the important events taking place in the first month of the New Year.
Mentioned below is a list of all events which you can choose to design for. Try and put up cards under varied subcategories and as many as possible. Each event is unique and tests your capability as an artist. Think quirk, think fun, go out of the box and let’s bring the New Year in with style!
A New Year brings new hope, new excitement, new nervousness, new feelings, new confidence, new things to look forward to, new goals and the list can go on. The New Year helps us retrospect over the last one year, cherish all those good memories, gives us hope for the future and helps us let go of unwanted things. This year create some touching yet exciting, warm yet fun, celebratory yet lovable, inspirational yet joyous and humorous cards for our users. Push yourselves to create some awe worthy cards for your users this New Year and welcome 2017 with a bang!
Cuddle up Day calls for giving your loved ones tight squeezes and wrapping them up in your arms. Whether it’s a family member longing for our warm touch or our better halves waiting to snuggle up with us after a long day, create some cards filled with lots of love wrapped in warm cuddles which users could send to their near and dear ones. Help users make their special people feel loved this day.
Orthodox Christmas is the day to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ and the spirit of the holy festival with the traditional customs and the ‘Feast of Nativity’. Users would like to bless their loved ones with peace, hope and faith this day, messages should be centered around these emotions. Use festive colors and elements of Christmas but don’t forget to have an element of Lord Jesus in your card. Christmas carols and hymns are the kind of music you should use in these cards.
This day is dedicated to civil rights activist, Martin Luther King, Jr. Help users celebrate and honor the life and legacy of this great leader through your ecards. He inspired people through his words and made a difference to the lives of many.
Create cards using elements that speak about pride, justice and righteousness. You can use themes such as ‘Honoring the Great Hero’, ‘Born to make a difference’, ‘a note of thank you’ and the likes. Use colors of the flag, symbols of freedom and text that bring out the respect and appreciation we feel for this great man. Use animation and music to accentuate the emotions of pride and respect for him. Inspirational and admiration messages work best for the event, which users can send to the person who has motivated and inspired them to achieve their dreams!
A lot of people are shy to express their heartfelt feelings explicitly. Whisper ‘I Love You’ Day is the perfect day for those people to whisper these three magical words and propose their love to their sweetheart. It also gives couples a chance to get romantic and whisper sweet nothings to their partners and rekindle the romance in their relationship. Design such warm, cute and romantic cards for the users, make sure your me to you messages are special and one of a kind.
With sub-categories such as ‘Love Hugs’, ‘Warm Hugs’, ‘Cute Hugs’, ‘Friendly Hugs’ and ‘Thank You’, there is plenty of room to experiment. We would love to see how you create different and innovative cards which fit each sub-category. Be it your sweetheart, a family member or a friend, everyone loves a warm, big and cozy hug which makes them feel loved! Create some adorable cards which make the receiver of the card feel the tight squeeze from the sender of the card. Don’t forget to design some Thank you cards for users to send to the ones who have made their lives special with their love, warmth and timely hugs.
Compliments are not only big confidence boosters but also makes one feel really good about themselves. You have a chance to personalize your cards for your users and make them unique. For example, create cards which one can send to his/her friend for being a wonderful and supportive friend, a husband can send to his wife and compliment her beauty or a child can send to their mother for the delicious meals she whips up. Help users unlock their hearts and send sweet and special compliments to their dear ones with your ecards.
As the year of the rooster begins, it’s time to greet everyone with a warm ‘Gong Xi Fa Cai’ and wish them good luck, good fortune and prosperity.
Elements for this event are many and include Chinese paper lanterns, firecrackers, flowers such as plum blossom, narcissus, kumquat, bamboo and sunflowers, Chinese zodiacs, tangerines and oranges, spring couplets written with black ink on red paper, dragon and lion dances, gold coins and candles. The colors ideal for the event are red and yellow. Avoid use of dark colors and dark fonts, as this event endorses happiness, good fortune, longevity and wealth. Music should suit the festival, look for Chinese New Year songs on the net to add to your cards and make them apt for the event.
With more than 10 sub-categories under the event, you have plenty of room to experiment and play with your elements to create some fantastic and bright cards for your users and make their Chinese New Year a memorable one.
