About Mandy Gordon

I won my very first greeting card design contest (Easter card) in the 4th grade and was ecstatic to have my picture taken for the local newspaper. Ever since I was a little girl I have been drawing and later combined computer technology to enhance my illustration skills in college. I have a degree in graphic design and particularly love designing anything that allows me to showcase my illustrations.

OMG when I saw your chemistry themed wedding invites my jaw dropped! I'm planning on having a chemistry wedding and as a graphic designer I want super modern invites but I was having a hard time with something fresh and modern. I love your design so much! Is it ok to use your design as inspiration for my invites?

Hi Mandy! I wanted you to know what a fan I am & to ask you for some advice :) I've played around with pattern making & find it more difficult then it looks. Do you have any good ideas, websites or tips on where I could get more help in that area? Your patterns are always so beautiful. You can email me at icreategraphics@bellsouth.net when you get time. Thanks so much Mandy!
