Architects' Holiday Greetings VI

Modern Florida Luxury Homes for sale - Tobias Kaiser, real estate broker

I cheated: Deezen who makes this card is actually a company selling greeting cards to architects and designers. But when in this card they lined up classic desk lamps (Arne Jacobsen?) like little birds on wires, I had to smile.

You too?

Architects' Holiday Greetings V

Mid-century modern architecture for sale in Florida - Fachmakler für Klassische Moderne in Florida - Tobias Kaiser

Happy Christmas and Hannukah with architect Sprenger's (near Stuttgart/Germany) lovely model house – complete with snow, lighting and a Christmas tree (as well as ruler, pencil and xacto knife).

Made me smile, just like the next one coming up...

Architects' Holiday Greetings IV

Modern Florida Holiday Greetings from Tobias Kaiser, Real Estate Broker and Modern Home Specialist

Undoubtedly an incredibly gifted architect, but who in Mr. Meyer's office is responsible for creating Holiday greetings? If you think the commission shown in this greeting card looks like a hotel: you're right.

Very subjectively of course but IMHO, the firm used better-themed project shots in prior years. So does this greeting make you feel the Holiday spirit? Me neither. – Next, I'll show you a different take on "greeting card with my own projects".

Architects' Holiday Greetings II

Peter Platter of Platter-Architekt in Braunschweig/Germany (vielen Dank, Peter!) uses colour very nicely to separate snowman and Christmas tree (and the adults' sweaters!) from the wintery gray landscape showing a double shed-roofed modern home:

Architects' Holiday Greetings: I

Holiday Greetings. How original.

During the month of December, instead of modern homes for sale I feature retro modern Holiday cards on my website http://www.ModernSouthFlorida.com. But somehow I thought I also ought to check what architects send.

Perhaps I'd better leave that subject alone? As gifted as many are in their fields, their marketing skills (or simply their greeting card choices?) are often not quite on par. You'll see later what I mean.

So until New Year, I'll show you a few examples, good and not quite so. Very subjectively, of course.

As an opener, here is the lovely and eye-catching card from eStudio vS based in Guanjuato/México.

Enjoy, and Happy Holidays!

PS: If you are curious if I sit in the glasshouse, or what my office sends: for all of my client greetings including Christmas / New Years, I select a photo I shot myself. 
It makes at least me feel warm and fuzzy, having used something "hand crafted". – Yeah right.
