what is graphic design?

Another example of wonderful graphics work from the abidingly talented Clare owen, this time, a parisian- inspired "j'adore" print for Tigerprint greeting cards.

Once again, this example was found through flickr, what a treasure trove!

There are so many things I love about this design- the natural pink and beige tones in contrast with the block boldness of the eiffel tower, along with the circus- inspired decorative typography, but, perhaps most of all, is the slight-faded screenprinted style texture that the picture has achieved- giving a slightly used/vintage effect, without being over-the-top.

Simply brilliant.

"graphic design...simple and effective."
