About Ann Gardner

I draw inspiration from history, travel, and nature in designing pieces for important celebrations and 'just because' events. I hope that good, old fashioned letter writing never dies.

Hi Ann! I really appreciate your comment on my deer card, but I have a question for you. I am wondering about the leading - the top font is thirsty soft, and since the letters all connect, wouldn't it look strange to spread it out? Maybe I'm misunderstanding? I'm really new to design so I don't always have my terms right. Thanks so much for your help!

Hi Ann! Thank you so much for all your comments, you've always been great with that. I've noticed a couple of times you've written to keep other versions in my comments section. Just wondering, do you think that helps when people are voting? Or is that a critiquing tool? Thanks :-)

I'm torn between keeping the neutral design and changing the b/w picture, or keeping the blue with the current pic.

I noticed yours was posted a few days before mine was....I was afraid you would see mine and think I was inspired/copying....

Hi, Ann! I wasn't sure of a good way to contact you, so I thought I'd try this. You're one of my favorite Minted designers, but I've unwittingly created a very similar design to yours. I started a Forum thread about it here: http://www.minted.com/forum/comments.php?DiscussionID=1066&page=1#Item_3 . Just wanted to say I'm on top of it and having it removed!

Hi Ann, Thank you, I appreciate you getting back to me. Minted is like a blessing from out of the blue, an opportunity to be involved with the way of designing I am aspiring toward. The first 3 challenges I was way off, but I had fun. For the "Out of the box holiday gift tag challenge" I was way out of the box in a couple of instances, not sure about the others. I feel the concept is just out of reach. Seems I would know this but sometimes things take a little while until I "get it". I'm realizing that the limits and standards of the advertising world I was locked into are still with me; I have design habits. Is there a 12-step group for that? "Hi, I'm Debb W. and I am a bold-advertising design-aholic?" I need a fresh approach and any advice you can give on how to get there is a start. If it would be easier to email me my address is: clearbeautifulday@gmail.com. Again, thank you for your time.

Hi Ann - thank you so much for your feedback. I really love your work and appreciate your advice so much. You are sooo right - it is a bit "spring-like". I don't know if I'll have time to edit it before the deadline (depends on how needy our three-year old is tomorrow), but I will definitely play around with it if I have time. Thanks again :)

Congratulations on your win, Ann. 'Ready for My Close-up' is a clever idea; fun and adorable for a birth announcement! I'm new to Minted.com and I love your work.

hi ann, thank you for commenting about the color of my red notecard - i actually used the red color in the submission kit, but when i hit "save for web", the color was completely off, so i tried to manually adjust the color for presentation purposes, but after saving it, the red is still off! do you have any ideas as to how to make the color appear more accurate after i save it?

Thanks for the suggestions, I dropped the text area down and rounded it to make it look "egg-like". Hopefully its working a little better now, I knew it was missing something!

Hi Ann, Congrats on the handyman business card design...one of my favorites! I was curious if I could get your input on this suite of cards I submitted for the +3 card challenge. I'm not sure if it's too minimal(?). Check out all three and let me know your thoughts (Halloween, Easter, Thxgiving). Renee :)
