That's What Christmas is All About

Jamie and I are huge fans of A Charlie Brown Christmas, and wanted to design a poster inspired by it. We came up with this design, and had a lot of fun making it. And being the ambitious typographic animator that I am, I decided at the last minute that I wanted to animate it. I hope you enjoyed it!

We wish you a very merry Christmas, and hope you all enjoy spending time with your family and friends as we celebrate the birth of Jesus.

    1. We actually don't sell it, but so many people have been asking for it we decided to have it as a free printable everyone can uses. We are planning on posting that this Friday! So make sure to come back and download it.

  6. I will come back looking for it too! One comment, however, the word "so" as it is in the poster (they were so afraid) is "sore" (they were sore afraid) in the Bible verse. Listen carefully to the recording of Charlie Brown Christmas.
