New Year Card Contest 2020
Our annual event at the end of the year, new year card contest! KAI students always surprise us by their wonderful talent! And the winner's design is adopted as KAI's new year card. This year three students applied. And Heather won! Congratulations, Heather!

My new year's card design uses a simple red and blue color scheme to depict New Year's Greetings and symbolic objects. Japanese design often uses "inkan" (stamps) and traditional wave patterns, so I decided to use these in my design. Because 2020 is the year of the rat, I added 2 friendly rants to the design. But don't worry, they are here to bring good luck, not to eat the mochi. This mochi is "kagami mochi", which is a special New Year's mochi eaten and displayed in homes at this time of year. In my design too, I wanted to display this unique food and symbol!
I used Hiragana to express the Japanese of my card. Behind the mouse is a kadomatsu, traditional for Japanese new year.
