The Art of the Anti Valentine

10 Anti Valentines You Need This Year

Every year, these Valentine’s Day cards get a little more diverse and a little more complicated. Yes, lots of funny kinds of love out there. But it’s also important to have a few cards for our dear single friends on this tortuous day. And then there are those of you who hate buying Valentine’s Day cards and kinda want this holiday to go away forever. But alas. This year, I had a lot of fun designing these. My designing happens around Christmastime, which is a little weird due to most stores needing them quickly after the Christmas rush ends. Also, there are a whole lot of you who like to get a jump on your Valentine shopping.

As you may have noticed, there is a lot more illustration and lettering going on in the cards lately. This is because I’ve always looked to make the cards brighter and even more fun. It’s been a goal of mine to stop relying on fonts and move to everything being hand-lettered. So after dusting off the old calligraphy skills, I’ve gotten back into something I’ve long forgotten – the art of the letter. Typography is something I’m obsessed with. I hope you enjoy the completely unique new version of the same hilariously snarky cards you’ve grown to love (and hate, right?)

If you hate Valentine’s Day, another route to happiness is checking out the new section in the shop. I’ve been working hard at putting a bunch of new ideas to the test, and I hope you enjoy them! Click here for the NEW card section.
