Spotlight on the finalists!

In our spotlight on the finalists series we have already introduced Noura, the grand prize winner of the 2010 Holiday Card Design Competition. We’re now pleased to present Tania Duffault, the winner of the Jury Prize, awarded based on artistic merit.

Photo Tania DuffaultOriginally from the Ukraine, Tania studied art at the Fine Arts and Architecture Academy of Kiev.  She is now a graphic designer, which is not only a profession but also her passion.  Her principal medium is painting; she is currently preparing an exhibit.  She is also exploring advertising.

Tania admits being very pleased and surprised at winning a prize in the 2010 Design Competition.  “I was very happy, of course!” she told us.

For this competition, Tania was determined to find an original expression, a different language.  To accomplish this feat, she explored a new avenue: cut paper which was then photographed to produce a final product complete with rich with shadows and color nuances, despite the white paper.

The theme of the card was inspired by her Ukrainian background.  For Tania, the New Year is synonymous with winter, and snow.  Her idea was to combine the sensation of the holidays with snow, the tree, decorative balls, and gifts.

Congratulations again to all our finalists!

Ooprint introduces you the first prize's winner!

Ooprint wants to congratulate again the winners of the 2010 design cards competition!

We are very happy to introduce you Noura Aït Issa as the first prize’s winner.

Noura told us how she felt about winning the prize and how she created her card.

Photo NOURA 1 Noura, 35 years old, lives in Casablanca, Morocco, and works as a graphic designer. First, design was a hobby for her and then, she decided to work as a full-time designer .

When she sent her card, she thought she had a good chance to win the competition… and she was right actually!

When she heard about the competition results, she said she was “very touched and very, very happy about the news.”


To win this competition, she had in mind to do something special with “2010”, like emphasizing the date and create the all design of her card from it. 

For the New Year, she thought about a contrast with a “2010” very colorful and a black background.

As she explained, the background symbolizes the past year and the flashy colors symbolize hope and pride for the new year.


Find out about her design works on her blog.
