¡Hola! I'm Ana, a Puerto Rican working as an art director in the lovely city of Boston. With me, it's all about the ideas. Yet, I also love pure, simple, breathtaking design. Colors and type design play an important part in my artwork pieces. If the idea is powerful enough you don't need to decorate it much. Being part of the Minted community is more than a blessing. You challenge yourself more and other designs inspire you every day. It is a very positive community, they want you to succeed.

Hi Ana, I noticed you are not on the designers Facebook page but there is currently a post about the first person to ever give feedback on your designs. It caused me to have a look and it turns out you were the first person to comment and it was on the first ever design I submitted so thank you! Having those early designs on display is a little cringe worthy but at least good for something!
Hello Ana~ Just dropping by to say thank you for viewing and commenting on my design. I LOVE your designs! I'll also try my best to be better at designing like most of the people here at Minted. Cheers and good luck to you! :3
Hi Ana! Thanks much for your comments on my Love All Around wedding invite. I admire your work and greatly appreciate the compliment.

Hi, Ana! Thanks so much for your helpful comment on my Tangram Heart design. You were right about the type. I hope you like the new version better. Can't wait to see what fun designs you submit!
Thanks so much for your helpful comment on my christmas-gram card! I was thinking the same thing about the copy but hadn't come to a conclusion I really love yet lol. I'd love your thoughts on the update if you ever get the time :)
Thanks Ana :) Good luck in the Thank You Challenge! You have some really great entries and I especially love Grazie Fun!
Ana - thank you for your feedback on my Pile of Leaves design. For the future, what style of text and placement would you have used? My first version showed the text in a blank area between the leaves... hmmmm :o)
Ana! You are such a dear! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my designs. I look forward to getting to know you better in the Minted world.
Thank you so much, Ana! You are such a supportive, positive person in this community -- and I love your work!

Thanks for your comment on christmas pie chart. I see you're in advertising - art director? I used to be as well and am missing it a bit - thank goodness for minted. (I also miss having a writer to come up with clever and witty things to say on designs - took me a while to figure out what to put on that pie chart!!) you have a lot of really great designs here.
Thanks Ana for the encouragement! I am a huge fan of your designs! xoxoxo
Hey Ana.. Yes, when i did my Boston artwork.. I think about you haha.. If you like it, okay, I pass! YAY.. Hope to live in Boston.. envy u sooo muchhhh LOL...
No, Chicago. I grew up in Waltham, lived in Boston for years, and moved out west about 2 years ago. (husbands job) - Marathon Day, heard the weather was pretty nice there today. Yahoo!
Thanks Ana - funny, I went out to shoot something for myself on Saturday and while walking back to my car, I spotted an old barber shop. I've got some shots with the owner in the window. I will have to let him know what I've done with the shots I took. Keep you posted.

Hi Ana..! Thank you so much for your sweet comments on my designs. The idea of using the octopus in the baby shower challenge is a good one. I was already sketching one with animals, and I think I might use the octopus. Thx again, you made me smile ;)
Ana, I took your advice and made some changes. I thought I had until midnight today but when I went to submit the new one it was not allowing any new submissions. I posted the new design in my comments in case you are interested in seeing it. Thanks again for your input.

Thank you Ana for such a sweet note. The mintie peeps definitely hold the bar high- You are no exception- keep up the great work!
Aw, thanks Ana - I agree with Mandy, you are a design machine! :)
Thank you for your comments, Ana! I hope your holiday was a good one :)
Thanks for your great comments Ana :) I really appreciate your clean design sense and cheerful colors. I sometimes drive myself nuts looking for the right colors! Happy Easter!!
Thanks for your comment, Ana. You're right, we are quite close! I'm definitely going to be at the Boston meet-up and would love to see you there! Great work BTW, you're a design machine!
Thank you Ana for your kind comment. This is my first time entering any minted challenges and I am very excited. You have a beautiful style and I love your work.
thx SO much for your Canytarian comment! when browsing submissions i seem to click on your designs all time time (their cute-osity & humor draws me in! :) so i am especially honored by the compliment!!
thx ana! thx for tge feedback on Solid Chocolate Holiday! i agree! mentioned in description/tags how it could work for many occasions. it was tough to pick b/t hwn & easter for the submission, but b/c choc easter bunnies always have "solid choc" on the pkg of nicer ones (since they aren't hollow inside) so it made sense to enter it as easter. would be cool if there was a way to submit a design series in certain cases like this to show how you see the options working. the choc type is editable too, so it can say any msg, like a bride/grooms name for a save the date, etc! thx agn for your feedback!! :)
Oh Tereza. English is my second language too. I think we rock. Imagine how many people can speak two languages. Thanks for the nice comment!
Thank you so much for the compliment. You have beautiful ideas...
.... I like to go to you as the gallery :-) ..... I am sorry, my english is terrible :-)... I think I speak as a first grader :-)
Thanks Ana! Congrats on your jury pick last month!! :D
