About Lea Delaveris

A designer at work and a designer at play - I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to create cards, invitations and just about anything else for friends, family and a few paying clients too.

Hi Lea, Thanks for the helpful comment on "Done." I was saving the word "done" for another idea but you were right and I changed it. Thanks again and good luck in this challenge.

Hi Lea! Thanks so much for your note, the likes, and the kind words about my fabric designs! I was really excited to see that Minted would be printing fabrics so I went a little overboard on the pattern design. :) Hopefully some of those designs get picked up by Minted because I'm excited to see how the patterns will be used for home decor. And good luck to you as well! I can't believe there were over 1,000 submissions to the challenge!

Hi Lea! Thanks for saying hello! It's nice to know fellow Minties in Columbus. I see you work for the Dispatch. I used to work for Kroger in Westerville in what's known as one of Kroger's regional print center. ROP and in-store circular/tabloid layouts are put together there. I bet we could swap lots of stories...heehee ; )

Hi Lea! Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a sweet comment on my "manners" art print design. And good luck on the calendar contest! I didn't get a chance to look through submissions as they were uploaded, but while I was voting, your designs stood out as the kind of calendar I'd like to use..."insta" and "quote me on that" especially.

Hi Lea, I did nudge the pic as you suggested and also made the crest a bit smaller. I think both are improvements though crest not quite centered. Darn. I am so glad you like the plaid.

Hi Lea, I just wanted to thank you for taking the time to critique my design - I did try your suggestion - it was something I am still messing with it because I liked seeing the word joy all by itself. (maybe just get rid of that extra copy?) Anyway- nice to get feedback - and I am originally from Ohio too! My husband's family are all totally Buckeye nuts!
