About the design
This year’s holiday card was designed by T.K. Justin Ng MArch I ’23. The watercolor illustration celebrates the delight of the winter season and the return to Gund Hall after a year of remote learning and teaching due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The design gives a playful nod to the building’s milestone year by highlighting the evolution of technology that has shaped the iconic trays since 1972.
Watch the video below to get a behind-the-scenes look at how this year’s card was created.
