pinkest

Thursday, March 8, 2012


another card design for American Greetings submitted ages ago see it here on their site

The creative brief sent to me was to come up with a birthday card for her, based on my best selling (dontcha know) print available always ;-) in my etsy shop. I came up with text + design.

American greetings: Please make it very pink !
Moi: (chuckling to myself) oh my ... I'll see what I can do

But (sad face) the design has changed quite considerable in their final version. C'est la Vie in Designer Land - this kinda stuff happens. I'm sure that they know their market and for some reason decided that pinkest wasn't the way to go. Of course I like the pinkest one best - natch :-)
