About Jennifer Postorino

Back in the day I was a nationally ranked gymnast (I wanted to be Mary Lou) now I'm a mommy of 2! I design in between my kids naps, soccer games & never-ending errands! I’m married to a college basketball coach. We move around a lot due to his career, but I love the fact that I can design where ever we go. I‘m constantly learning & evolving my style + skills thanks to the fabulous community at minted! Design is ever changing just like my life & i wouldn't change it for the world

Hi Jennifer! Thanks so much for you comment on my "Tea Party" invite! I definitely will try it as a photo design if I have a chance before the deadline and see if I can make it work, thanks for the suggestion :)

Hi Jennifer, no problem and I am SO sorry to hear your little ones are sick. I hope they get better soon!!! A few iterations have come and gone since I sent you that note: type above was in the previous iteration and the script was in the original design, but in the end, I think minimal is just best for me. Thank you so much for your input, though. I really appreciate the time and effort and thoughtfulness!!!

Thanks Jennifer for your helpful feedback on my Royal Affair design :) I made the changes as you advised,I felt the trend sans font was modern but didn't gel with what I was going for, so I substituted it with Brandon G. Please have a look at it whenever convenient & let me know what you think of it. Thanks again! Lastly your submissions are so charming in this challenge,lovely :)

Hi Jennifer, I just got your message and there is no such thing as a dumb question! I either hand draw or use illustrator to create my flowers and illustrations. I prefer to hand draw/ paint but only recently figured out how to bring in my drawings and paintings to the computer to use in my designs. I am still learning a great deal about this! I appreciate the compliment about the flow of my pieces, I have been working really hard to improve. I really don't have any secrets haha, I just keep trying new things. Anything I do know how to do I am happy to share :) At this point I feel like I look like I am all over the place for having so many styles, I could really use some editing advice sometimes :)

Hi Jennifer, thanks for suggesting leading & tracking - honestly I've not done leading before so gave it a go - both chunks of text are the same leading now but as there is a big 12 the leading appears different - what do you think - if you have a moment off mom duties :) http://www.minted.com/design-rating/269358 I would appreciate it.
