Hi! I’m a designer currently living in NYC who loves all things design and stationery related. I have a degree in graphic communications and have been in corporate design for over ten years, but what really keeps me going is creating art for awesome people like you.

I'd love to meet for coffee. Where are you in Manhattan? I'm close to Union Square.
Hi Dawn, thanks for your nice comment on my jungle babies invite. I love your designs and I just realized... I think I was sitting next to you at the meetup last month for a bit? (I had to leave early).
Dawn, thank you so much for your feedback! I made the changes you recommended and it looks better. I really appreciate you taking the time to give me some direction. :) Chris
hi Dawn, thanks for your comments on mix and mingle! I had so many options and mixes for the type. It was driving me crazy! I'll look at it again and see if I can make it more interesting! Thanks, Carol
Hey Dawn - Thank you so much for your helpful comments on my Heartland design. I've updated it yet again and was wondering if you could take another look for me. Thanks!
Thanks for letting me know about the margins - I just fixed it to include the correct margins. Too bad Minted can't print to the edge. Thanks again!
hi Dawn, thanks so much for the sweet comment on my infinite blessings design! made my day! I think and think about some of the designs posted and nothing... but come this morning and the deadline adrenaline rush took over. I am so glad it did! Hopefully, lots of improvement!
Hi Dawn! thanks for your awesome note on my profile! i really appreciate it!
thanks for your lovely comment on my 'New York Crash Course' design! really appreciate it! Phrosné
Another win - Happy Birthday! :)
Thank you so much for the catch on the size of the grid on my calendar - I read the directions too fast and completely missed that part! Thank you!
ps - love those robots!!
Hi Dawn! Just wanted to say 'hi!' and that i love your robot collection. So darn cute!
Hi Dawn - thanks for your nice note, I like your robot collection :)
Hi Dawn! Thank you very much for your comment on my Pocahontas stationery. I changed it to a vertical layout and I think you're right, it reads better this way. If you had a moment, would you mind taking a second look? Thanks!
bet you're sorry you asked for feedback! :)
Hey, Dawn - I just added something to my two recent comments on your Rudolph design...but, then thought you may have already read it...so...I was just thinking the reason I'm not fond of a dark photo pverlay on that design is b/c Rudolph is making spirits "bright." It seems contrary to darken the photo. Anyway, just wanted to explain my comment further. Love that Rudolph! Good luck!
hi dawn! thank you so much for your comments on my floral wonderland design. you were SUPER AMAZINGLY helpful. i finally got around to making edits and kept a lot of your comments in mind! again, thank you so much for taking the time to give me suggestions! i love your work, especially those adorable robots!!
Hi Dawn, Thank you for your comments on my design. I have updated it quite significantly and would love your opinion again if you have time. http://www.minted.com/design-rating/61950 thank you again for your critique! I really appreciate it! ~Kristi
and, hopefully, we'll BOTH rack up more in the holiday challenge...fingers crossed!
Thanks so much for your note, Dawn! I'm pretty excited about it!!! :)
Hey dawn thanks for ur feedback on gifts from Santa. Right now I am out of town with no access to my illustration files...will do the editing once I m back to Seattle :)
Hi Dawn! Thank you so much for your feedback on my Very Merry Christmas design. I wasn't 100% happy with it but wasn't sure which way to take it so I will be definitely be experimenting with your suggestions! :)
Hi Dawn! thanks for you suggestion on "Nice Work" I have edited it so hopefully it reads "hard" and not "hord". Husband is playing Diablo 3 next to me and totally agreed "hord" hehe :D.
I think it's awesome!!! The digital type and his "good" meter speak for themselves...although, I was thinking that kid looked like he might be closer to the coal side. :) I don't know what you would say...maybe "better be good" in the digital type and the "merry Christmas" with the names? But that might be making him less friendly? I like it as is, too. I wish I had such a great gimmick to repurpose as your robots - they are so great!!!! Hope he wins!
Thanks for the feedback Dawn! :-) I'm starting to see diamonds I've stared so long at the (*ahem*) five versions I have going of this, lol ;-)
Thanks for your super nice comment, Dawn!!! Just hoping for a shot this year! (aren't we all?!) :)
Hi Dawn! Thanks so much for the additional help about the background, at last it is better.
thank you!!! I'm really new at this so I've been following a generic line until I figure things out a little better.
Thank you so much for catching my typo, Dawn!!
Thanks, Dawn! I was thinking plum/gold and navy/gold for the other colors. When you are untrained, you HAVE to simplify to be able to do something good! So, I guess I have an advantage there... :) I'm still thinking about that font - I don't have Learning Curve, but I'll try some others...Thanks!!
Thanks for the feedback, Dawn! This is the one that inspired my daughter's purple and red card - she hates the green! I used her purple and red combo in my other entry - Joy Underlined (she made a face at that one b/c it didn't look like hers1)
Hey, Dawn - just stopped by to check out your chevron thank you design...I love that one! I think I may have recognized that one as yours.
Hi Dawn, I would absolutely love your help with my Celtic design! thank you so much for offering : ) Can I send you an email with some examples of what I have been working on to give you a better idea.. I know that my rambling did not make much sense : )
Thanks Dawn! I am going to take your advice regarding my script thank you card :)
yay! Thank you so much for your help. I am very new to hand lettering but wanted to give it a try. I wasn't sure if the grey was visible but glad to hear that it was. Thanks again! :)
hi Dawn- Thanks so much for your honesty... I really appreciate it. So I made one more attempt with this font... will you please let me know what you think? If still no good, I'll move on to another font :). Thanks!!
Hi Dawn- Thanks so much for your feedback on my floral burst design. I adjusted the font... any better or do you think I should choose a new one? Thx :)
Ha! sometimes she begs me to post for her .... I know the feeling :)
Ok, now it just came up that David left you the message. Argh! Odd. Too many browsers open. Again, i can't thank you enough. Made his day!
Hi - my husband David just left you a message but it came up as me : (.
Thanks for taking the time to give him a big welcome. I've been talking about Minted for months now and this is the first challenge I can get him involved. I think his work is great (and I get to use his camera gear for stuff I want to shoot, not a bad deal!) - fingers crossed!!
thanks so much for the kind comments, its my first time posting here - so i appreciate you taking the time to drop me a note of encouragement...
hey dawn! thanks so much for your comment on my 'Winter Cityscape' :) i'll look around for another possible font alternative than 'Albemarle Swash', really appreciate you taking a look at my design! <3
Missed your work in the last challenge, Dawn - get out your holiday hat and put some winners up! :) BTW - doing that Etch-a-Sketch thing was trickier than I thought! Well, to get it to look good, anyway...still thinking about it! :)
I will definitely check out ohioart.com - thanks for the tip!!!
And, I have a theory about the fewer Editor's Picks here lately...I think they want us to have something good to sell on our Minted storefronts when they launch sometime this year...if they select ALL the good stuff it costs more money up front and makes the storefronts less viable...is this a Forum question?
Bummer that I won't be there...sounds like a great time! So, I decided to add "knotes" to my Etch-A-Sketch (in my photo)- would that look cool? Except I cannot replicate Etch-A-Sketch writing (I tried), so I think I will dig out my daughter's mini one tomorrow, so I can write it, photograph it and trace it...it seemed like a such quick and easy project when I thought of it...
geez - it looks like I'm stalking you...I better stop writing!
Tough crowd tonight...can't believe Fantastic Notes didn't get a pick. I love that one!
well - they all look great! You really did a fab job of creating all the pieces - they are each wonderful on their own! I, personally, find that a challenge with some of the extras...
Just checked out your Infinity & Beyond invite for sale - love your whole suite!! It looks stellar. So, do you have 4 colorways b/c someone has already ordered a custom color?
They are happy little guys...hope your week gets better! :)
Robot family tree? :P
Thank you BIG TIME for the thumbs up on my A Happy Hello!! It means more then I can even begin to express.
Thanks again Dawn for your help! Your awesomeness goes to the moon and back ;)
thank you! it's feeling right, now. Must. Go. To. Bed.
thanks so much for your feedback on byline, dawn! If you get a chance, I would love for you to look at the various attached versions on the submission and let me know what you think- thanks again! -sara
Hi Dawn, thanks for checking out a couple of my entries and for your comments! Appreciate it !! Stop by any time and good luck in the challenge!
You, go, Robot Girl!! Wahoo!
Hello Dawn! Thanks so much for the help and comment. I already size down the font for a few points. And it is better. Many thanks to you again & god bless always.
You are very welcome! Best of Luck, it turned out great!
Thanks for your note, Dawn. I know how you feel...sometimes I'm too close to my work too. Stepping away from a design for a few days really helps. And I'd love to sell you a couple of journals! Let's keep our fingers crossed that we both have new ones for sale! :-)
Thanks for your comment on my journal design! I think you're right. I changed the font color and its definitely more readable! I appreciate your feedback!
Looks like we'll have to "take over the stationery world" on another challenge...better luck next time! ;-)
can't wait to see what robot birthday party design you've got cookin'...
and, your comment just made me think of Pinky and The Brain..."what are we going to do tonight?" "what we do every night - try to take over the world!" yep, every night - soon the stationery world will be ours - Muah ha ha! ;-)
Thanks for the love, Dawn - you're awesome! :-)
Dawn - Thanks again for the Lost Type site suggestion. What a great site!!! I want to download everything!
Congrats on your win Dawn and loved your "Wedding Vinyl" entry :)
So glad your "Wedding Vinyl" entry to the Head Over Heels challenge won! I was a big fan! And those robots are just killer. Love it! Congrats!
Congratulations on your Ed's pick for Infinity and Beyond. Those robots.. too cute!
more like a pitcher. of the good stuff. serious :)
eternally grateful to you dawn! the heads up on wedinator, them linking back here by request so brides could find it (5 w/in a couple days!) is literally 100% of why it got in... cannot thank you enough dawn!!!!
Indeed - the world cannot have too many cute robots, and 50 sounds good!
of course, I only have picks, so I guess my 5 is less than your 5 already! ;-)
Dawn - congrats on your latest picks! Wedding Vinyl and Infinity & Beyond are awesome - you're not doing much to get rid of that Robot-girl title, though! ;-) And, now, we are tied at 5...that is, until you blow me away in the Art challenge!
Thanks Dawn for your sweet comment on Amelia Bearheart :) I was actually going to revise it yet AGAIN! Appreciate your feedback and loving your robot submissions!
ROBOT ART! ROBOT ART! ROBOT ART! :-)
You just pushed it up to a 100 watts with that Hebrew spelling... you're the best Dawn!!!
Thank you so much for the heads up Dawn! Had no idea, and was happy to see that although the title of the Wedinator section was about destroying the day of your dreams, that You In or What managed to come out with only a few thumbs down and assorted critique on how crazy the couple is to have their wedding in 2014 (little do they know it's b/c if minted chooses it, it'll not be live till 2012 :) oh and "Isaac" is the proper spelling. OOPS ;) Thanks AGAIN for being so sweet to forward this, brightened my day!!
and I also expect some robot art....
Go for it, Dawn! I've been messing with it, but can get it to work to my liking - and what a pain to d oeach letter!!! Good luck to ya...I'll leave mine as is, unless yours is totally different! :)
thank you Dawn for your helpful feedback! You affirmed what I thought about that one tangerine and the "reception" font. For some reason when I exported it seemed HUGE. Anyway, thank you again...and lovely work!
Hi Dawn, thanks always for your helpful comments! I wish I were loopy!! ;-) Carol
Hi Dawn, I can feel joy in your work and it brings a smile! Love your Head Over Heels submissions, best of luck in the challenge.
thanks, Dawn :-)
not joking about the congrats, though - CONGRATS!!! ;-)
and, I hope you know that I was joking - I got that from your forum post...
Big congrats, Robot-girl!! ;-)
Dawn...I made the suggested change on my Love is in the air. Would you, could you...please check it out to see if I am on the same page with your thoughts?
Dawn!!! You were the first to come to my rescue and I am much appreciative of your efforts. My Love is in the air is my fav too and you are the first to comment on it... I agree 100% on my Love Story.... I am taking both back to the drawing board. If I can return the favor...please, please let me know!!! Thanks again!!! You are my hero!!
Dawn, thank you so much for the tip! Totally didn't see that. Now I can finally update my previous submissions. Good luck on yours! I can't believe the deadline is this weekend! O.o
Dawn - love that you went to a "Bendy" wedding! Thanks for your nice comments on my "Branding" design. I made a few more changes - hope you approve! Can't wait for the Children's Stationery results - Fetch! is one of my favorites!
Hey Dawn, Thanks for you kind comment. I love you work and thanks for catching my spacing issue. I appreciate it.
Loved your comment, Dawn! That's why I save my more modern designs for Minted :)
Congratulations Dawn! Love your robots girl! ;-)
Wahoo!!! Congrats on your Notebook Challenge win!!!
Thanks so much Dawn! And BIG congrats to you!! I am so smitten with your robots! Looking forward to seeing you at the meetup on sat!!
Congrats Dawn! The robots have won!
Congrats, Dawn! Hooray for robots!
