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

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 am so glad that you like Landing no.2 and just want to say thanks for that. It really made my day i just went on the computer and saw this message. Oh yes by the way love your designs. All the success to you also in the submissions as well.

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! Thank you so much for your comments on my sketched botanical design! I really appreciate it. The name position was bothering me as well, so I ended up reworking the entire design and would love to know your thoughts if you have a quick second! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/291274 Thanks so much again, and happy Friday!!

Thank you Jennifer! I totally agree…I love receiving feedback! I'm still fairly new to stationary design, so any help is really great for me, it helps me grow and learn and like you said "see things from a different angle". Finally I am going to try the suggestion you gave me…this time of year gets so crazy! Thank you again :)

Hey Jennifer, Thank you for reaching out to me and letting me know. It's completely fine and I definitely don't want you to remove it. I was planning on doing more in the same concept, but father wasn't one of them. By the way, great portfolio.

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.

Thanks for thinking of me Jen! I'll definitely give it a look, but I think I'm waaayyy too dependent on Illustrator and constantly tweaking paths to make things look good. Not sure I could freehand an entire cup! It sounds really interesting though! Good luck with your house and the holiday challenge... I've seen some awesome submissions from you! :)

I am currently an advertising design student and I have a question. I was wondering, do all designers hand draw all art with a tablet (I am assuming so), or use stock graphics and alter them to how they want them to be?
