About Carrie ONeal

I’m a wife, mother of two talented teenagers, and owner of a graphic design studio near Cincinnati, Ohio. I love ice tea, cozy socks, and rainy days. With a 'less is more' approach, I strive to create designs that are traditional with a twist. I still get giddy with each and every Minted order, because it means that I get to play a small part in someone else's big moment. Thanks for visiting!

Hi Carrie! I really love your Jolly Joy holiday wrapping paper, and am trying to get a better idea of the scale of the text elements on a 20" X 28" sheet. If you don't mind my asking, how many JOY elements per 20" in your design? Thx so much! Christina Enciso/pandercraft

Thanks so so much for your sweet note, Carrie!! Definitely needed that! I was working my butt off trying to come up with designs that would be worthy of the crazy talent in our little pool of designers. Competition certainly does get tougher each year, which I guess is good because it pushes us all to learn and improve. :) And speaking of crazy talent, congrats on CMYK! Your holiday submissions are definitely proof of your deserved inclusion in the K level! Such clever and well executed designs! :)

Thanks Carrie! No worries on the late reply...we are all so busy! I'm finally now getting back into the challenges after a little hiatus. Thanks for the info...I'd seen some tutorial on creating it in PS but it never seems to look like the image they show on the tutorial! :) Thanks, Amy

Hi Carrie! Congrats on being featured in the Minted email about party decor...I really love that party design. I was wondering if you'd share how you made the glitter effect? I'd looking into doing something similar (found some tutorials online to create it in PS) but when I used a clipping mask in AI it just didn't give the effect I was looking for). If you don't want to share, I completely understand! Cheers, Amy

Carrie, thank you! School has been wonderful -- I feel so lucky to be back. Love seeing some of your beautiful letterpress work floating around facebook! This semester, I've been working on a press for the first time, and it has been such a treat. Wish we could work together sometime -- I have a feeling we'd have great fun!

Thanks for chiming in Carrie! :o)) - I'm at a loss though, for how to lose the city part of the design... what would you do? ditch the road too? make the house bigger? change the placement? AAAAAHHHH :o/

Nice for your portfolio :o) Happy to know you'll have time for Minted - I am so totally hooked and am still trying to find my niche. I'm all over the place w/ my designs but I'm learning so much, mostly what DOESN'T work! :o/ frustrating! Anyway - looking forward to seeing you online :o)

Hi Carrie! I'm totally honored that you are asking for my opinion - your work is always just phenomenal and I still feel pretty "green" on here most of the time! :) I actually think the type looks great, but I think it would also look beautiful with something taller/thinner for "Peace" and "Earth" - that would make the map/snowflake more of the focal point and the type could fit more into a square shape in the centre. I think Cyclone inline would look superb (tracked out a bit). I really like it as is though, too - it's fantastic either way :) Hope that helps!

wow, Carrie, thanks for the pep talk on my creature comfort design. I gave it a tweak and removed the colored bar from behind the type. Does it look too dull now? Thanks for your help! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/55729

It was so nice to meet you today, Carrie! I am such a huge fan of all your work - but, Craving Your Company is so adorable and clever, it's one of my favorite Minted designs. I was nervous and excited to meet some of my favorite stationery stars...and you are all as sweet as your designs - what a pleasure! Maybe we can carpool to Columbus for next meet-up?

Carrie, thanks for the great suggestion on the font. I switched Lady Rene to Eccentric and it makes the design appear so much cleaner.
