Every year around this time we share with you a selection of Japanese designer Holiday/New Year’s cards. Here is the 2014 edition, which should also serve as a reminder that this year is the year of the horse. Happy New Year!
1. A cute illustrated card from Nagoya-based graphic design firm creun, inc.
2. Each year Tomoko Azumi of TNA Design Studio uses her prized stamp collection to compose a card.
