Posted: Branden's Graphic Journey

Designer Braden Wise developed a series of twenty-five postcard designs inspired by his move from the American Midwest to California.  They are crafted with vintage typography style and capture the feeling of California's golden age along with lots of tongue-in-cheek whimsy. This is a great combination of classic and contemporary, retro and trendy.

Here are five from the series.  Be sure to see the full series that Braden designed at gooddayca.com

Kudos: Kyle White

You can tell that the wonderful Kyle White at Kyle White Design is completely comfortable in the postcard media.

Here is a postcard design for an invitation and a series to promote Poplarville (Mississippi).

I love Kyle's bold woodblock-like elements, his typography, his weathered treatment and his versatility.

KISS

I'm a big fan of simple.

Designer Nicole Tan's collection of postcards helps show how it's done.  Here are the front sides from her collection, based on signage she found around town (Nottingham).
