Thanks for the "like' on my design "Birmingham Blue" ... good luck in the Design Challenges!
Hi Dawn, Thank you very much for taking the time to like and comment on my entries. It means a lot coming from a community member as talented and successful as yourself!
Dawn! Thank you for your most insightful critique of my Welcome Baby New Year entry. I had such a hard time with the layout-- but in the end I liked the sun on the bottom, too so I went for it. I'll just hope for the best... and if not, maybe self-launch it as an art print :) best of luck in the challenge!
thanks for your support, not repair my pc :(
Grats on winning a Cheers to a New Year challenge Critique Award!
Dear Editor-in-Chief, did new look. Too ordinary? http://www.minted.com/design-rating/632804
Thank you so much for the feedback. I appreciate your perspective! <3
Thanks so much for your kind words! I've been shooting like crazy so I have a lot of submissions I've been waiting to enter in a challenge. I absolutely adore your robots--wish I had little kids, but mine are all teens and tweens now!
Hi Dawn, thank you for your helpful comment. Great to meet you on minted.
I like your Robots. Greetings from Berlin, Germany!
Hi Dawn! Thank you for the lovely comments and support of my submissions. Though brisk, I would highly recommend seeing a glacier in person if presented with the opportunity. Best advice, wear lots of layers and bring warm beverages! ;) Best of luck with challenge! Cheers! K
Hi Dawn! Thanks for all the feedback and taking time to comment and help out! Truly appreciate your time and feedback! Best of luck to you in the challenges!
Dawn, seriously, what would I do without you? THANK YOU for all of your feedback. This is the first challenge I have finished my designs and I'm pretty pleased with them-- thank you for helping me with the finishing details. You're amazing!
thanks so much dawn for your comment on my indigo swirls submission! revised it back to the white bottom. pam
Thank you for your sweet comment Dawn, it was so helpful! =D
That was it Dawn! A million thanks :)
Thank you so much for your help on my design again! You have such great feedback. And what a fabulous collection of cards you have in this competition!
Hi Dawn :) I saw that you just liked my Seas and Greetings …I was just working on it some more this morning because there's something about it that doesn't feel quite right still :) I'm uploading another option, and I'd love to hear if you think it feels resolved – thanks (either way, thanks for the like!)
Dawn! You are so great-- thanks for always being so positive on my designs! Yes, I agree I definitely changed the O Night Divine entry. My 9 month old napped today and I just decided to paint! Thanks for always giving such valuable feedback. Best of luck in the challenge!
Thanks for the feedback, Dawn. I don't have access to my files but I agree it could be a little larger.
Thank you so much for your feedback on my Spread Cheer design, Dawn! It was very helpful and I've made some changes based on feedback from you and others. Thanks so much, again!
Thanks so much for your comments on my design, Dawn! I definitely appreciate your input... so helpful! :)
Dawn, thank you for taking the time to offer some help on my design! I really appreciate it!! :)
Hi Dawn thanks so much for your comments and GREAT suggestion!! Im going to try to do the monogram today… I love this idea thank you:)
Hi Dawn, thanks as always for all the likes and helpful feedback on my designs. I shifted my Three Kings design over to foil now but still trying to decide between the colors! aaahh.. Thank you for taking the time to leave me constructive feedback :)
SUCH a pleasure meeting you in NYC at the Minted cocktail party! Hope you are having a wonderful weekend :)
Tank you for your input on my Frosty card. I have made changes and started a poll to see what everyone thinks. Thank you for your input. Love your cards and fabric.
Hi Dawn, thank you for your nice comment and feedback. I think you are right it does need some adjustments and I think needs to feel a little more balanced. Thanks again I really appreciate it! You have some really lovely work :)
Thanks Dawn. I did the snow globe in a portrait orientation and did a poll. It seemed like the winner was the horizontal orientation.
Thank you, Dawn. Yes, the consensus is to remove the red circle. Round template is a great idea. Thank you so kindly, appreciate. All the best to you.
Thank you for your input on my beach wreath design, I do think it helped the illustration to shine. I appreciate your support and encouragement, especially being brand new to Minted!
Hi Dawn, thanks for taking the time to offer suggestions on my holiday submissions. Much appreciated! Monica :)
Hi Dawn, just wanted to say thank you for all your insightful comments and critiques. You have really have a gift for seeing how designs could be improved, thanks for sharing!
Just read your comment - thank you! I added portrait options. I am just worried the "wave" effect at the bottom is dated. Oh well :) LOVE your Santa Claws by the way!
Do you think it needs a border around it? Thanks again! You are awesome! So so appreciated!
Hi Dawn, thanks for all your constructive critiques on my holiday card submissions, I found each one very helpful! Good luck to you on the challenge! I'm looking at your designs, the adorable Robot Collective II has caught my eye, wonderful illustrations and great colors!
Hi Dawn! I know we are getting down to the wire, but I really appreciate your feedback on my design.... I am struggling with my tropical themed card. I don't love it so I put up a poll with a couple options. Are you able to take a peek? If you have time it would be greatly appreciated! Thank you :)
Hi, Dawn. Thank you very much for the constructive comment and likes! Best.
Hi Dawn, thanks for all your new feedback today! I just wanted to let you know I took your advice re: the Be Good Next Year design and removed the white border.. Looks better now so thank you :))
Dawn! thank you so much for the feedback on my foliage holiday design. SOOOO helpful! i really appreciate it! Best of luck! i really enjoyed the christmas hannukah card. I know many families that celebrate both <3
Made your recommended changes. Definitely the right thing to do. Thanks as always!! :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/609456
Hi Dawn! Thanks so much for your helpful comment on my "Bold Holidays" design. I actually created an updated poll with a bit of a change in spacing and I'd love to hear your thoughts if you have a chance! Thanks again for your time, JoAnn
Dawn, thank you for your comments on my holiday card. I made some changes on the letters. Much clear now!
Thanks for all of your feedback on my designs! That family seal design was my "I have another idea and the challenge is closing in 45 minutes" entry! I'm going to take a close look at it tonight.
Thanks Dawn for your comments and suggestions! Your feedback was really helpful in improving my designs! You have some beautiful work!
Thank you Dawn for the sweet comment! :)
Hi Dawn - I just wanted to say thank you again for leaving so much helpful feedback on my designs! x x :)
Thanks so much for your feedback on my holly design, Dawn! I followed your advice and I think it's much improved. =)
Dawn, thank you so much for your comments! I really appreciate all the helpful suggestions! Your cards look great, I absolutely love "Snowy Santa Claws" so cute :)
Thank you Dawn, you are so kind :) Have a great day!
Hi Dawn, I really appreciate your kind comments and helpful suggestions! Thank you so much (again :-))
Hi Dawn, you're always so helpful, sweet and enthusiastic. I knew I should do a poll...I just feel so bad because I didn't really participate this year and have barely looked at anyone's designs. I'm going to make some time to do that now. thanks! Looking forward to seeing you nxt wk!! xo
I'm so delighted to hear my "Frozen" design prompted your daughter to sing "Let it Go"! So adorable!! Thanks again for all your helpful feedback, Dawn! <3
Hehe, thanks for your sweet comment on my Geo Knit design! I agree: I'm looking forward to alternate colorways so I can go back to that red & blue!
Hi Dawn, once again your edits were helpful! Thank you so much, have a great day and good luck in the challenge!
You my friend are a rockstar! That's all I have to say!
Hello Dawn! Thanks for the comments. :) I didn't know how to save images in 550 pixels without exceeding 200kb. I figured it out. Thank you. Good luck in the challenges!
http://www.minted.com/design-rating/606938 Way better. Thanks Dawn.
Hi Dawn! I made those edits. Thank you, as always, for your suggestions!
Thank you so much for your comments on my design! I am new to Minted and greatly appreciate your feedback. Your designs and products are lovely!
Thank you for calling out the Thanksgiving color scheme! haha. Part of me knew it, but didn't want to admit it 'cause I'm just so married to that color scheme right now. SIGH!
Thanks for your thoughts on my GeoKnit design :) I proposed another color scheme in the top comments section that I'd love to get your opinion on! I got rid of the dots, which I think was a good call (thanks!). Don't know about losing the "with love" though =/
Thank you for all your comments and suggestions, always much appreciated!
Thanks for all your feedback!! Obviously you've been helping a lot of us, but I really appreciate your thoughtful comments.
Thanks, again, for your feedback on my Silly Season design. I originally had the "silly" overlapping the photo. Oh, how we second guess ourselves. Thanks for backing up my original thought!
Thank you so much for your feedback, Dawn! Typography is clearly one of your strengths, so your thoughts are super valuable to me.
HI Dawn, just saw your comment on my ho ho ho card, and honestly I'm torn on the design. I ran a poll with a current version and one with changes suggested by another designer and it was a 53% vs 47% results, so very narrow margin. Do you go with your gut sometimes or the popular vote?
Thank you Dawn for all the great feedback on all of my designs! Your feedback is always spot on.
Dawn, thanks so much for the valuable feedback you give every time! It's so sweet of you take the time out. Your feedback has been so helpful, really appreciate it xx
Thanks so much for all your feedback, and especially for noticing my submissions were looking a little small! I double checked, and somehow my "save for web" presets were messed up, so the images weren't saving at 550px. I fixed them all, and those extra few pixels make a big difference :)
Dawn! Thank you so much for all of your constructive feedback on my submissions. I really appreciate you taking the time to review them. :) I almost feel spoiled! Thank you again - means so much. xo
Hi Dawn, Good advice as always. I do wonder though about text color over photos. Since the client will load a totally different photo than sample and will have the choice of 3 different ink colors I have not been overly concerned about all the text being highly readable. I wonder if I should be as you and another have mentioned it. That's why I'm reluctant to put gradient or shadow behind it. Thoughts?
Thank you for helping me correct the lines for Fantastic Christmas - you got a good eye! I'm torn with the Spirit Bright, I worked really hard in the hand lettering but just doesn't have the X factor. I guess I have to play around with it.
You are right of course. :) What an eye. And feeling like Susan. I was starting to worry about you.
Hi Dawn! Thanks for your feedback on my Colorpop and Festive Tree designs. I changed up the spacing around the text in both as you suggested and it's definitely better! Really appreciate you taking the time to help make my designs better :)
Hi Dawn, Just checking in to make you you're good. Got pretty used to getting up, having coffee, and seeing what you had to say about one of my designs. I sure appreciated all your comments Dawn and my work got better because of them. Thanks so much and let me know if I can help you at all. See you soon.
Hi Dawn! Thank you again for all the comments and help for all my designs. I appreciated it very much.
Hi Dawn thank you so much for catching that outline I left in:) Thank you also for all your amazing suggestions, helpful feedback and generous comments:) i have made many amazing changes thanks to your great advice. I have a feeling you are a master in illustrator!! :) Am I right??
Thanks for the kind words and helpful feedback, Dawn! The type tweaks that you suggested definitely made a difference. Appreciate it!
Hi Dawn! thanks for all of the very helpful feedback! Take a look at Swirls of Joy again if you have a moment. I've enlarged the lettering. It would take a lot of work to have the flourishes overlap the photos in a nice way. Thanks again!
Dawn, thanks of your feedback, so helpful. Back to the drawing board!
Thanks for all your feedback, Dawn! The margins between the photos on my Joyful Bunch entry were all supposed to be equal in size but got messed up somewhere along the way – thank you so much for catching that! I'll definitely be fixing that. You're the best! :)
Thanks for your kind words Dawn! I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate all the feedback you've given me in the recent challenges. It's been super helpful and encouraging! Best of luck to you!!
Thanks so much for your help on "extra merry"! I'm the worst. I think I do better at quickfire challenges because I don't have as much time to second guess myself over and over again haha
Thanks for all of your suggestions, I've implemented almost all of your ideas and they have been spot on. So grateful for a second set of eyes to notice all the little stuff.
You've been SO lovely, thanks so so much! xx
Thank you Dawn for the great art direction. I love having a second set of eyes. since my eyes are a bit drowsy with newborn status :) thanks again for taking the time, it means a lot.
Hi Dawn, thank you so much for all your feedback! :)
Hi Dawn, thank you so much for all your lovely and constructive notes! It has been so helpful knowing we are on the right path with our designs!
Hello Dawn, thanks for all the helpful feedback. :)
Ha - thanks, Dawn! I wish I could be as good at getting my money's worth out of all my other fonts! :P
http://www.minted.com/design-rating/586888 please take a look Dawn. I started w/plain and added lines so unsure now.
Ha ha you crack me up. And you need to be an editor! Your eye for detail is amazing!
Hi Dawn, thank you so much for all your helpful feedback! :)
Hi Dawn, thanks so much for your feedback on "Merry Xmas", I started a poll with a few options if you have a second to take a look and let me know what you think, thanks! :)
Hi Dawn, I changed the fonts based on your feedback. If you have a chance let me know your thoughts. Maybe take the OT off for Rolling Pen? Thanks so much. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/586380
Thank you so much, Dawn, for your very detailed feedback on my holiday photo entry. It is much appreciated and I finally have some time now to make changes.
Hi Dawn, you seem to be knowledgable and the best person to ask. With LA7 designs, text left/photo right, what's a good rule of thumb measure for the left width? I fiddle with including and not including the .1 trim. Appreciate your help! : )
Thank you, Dawn!!! My jpegs were all too small and I had no idea. Appreciate all your comments. Extremely helpful. ;) Abby
