Hi E, How's life? Wish I could have been at the Carmel meet up. You've got an "a happy holidays" in your new ornament design. Not a big deal but you can't have it both ways...miss you.

Hi Erin, Just saw the new catalog with your baby announcement prominent and the the piece that will have your art print in mag ads. Totally cool. Good for you and sell lots.

Hi Erin! I did a hybrid version of the photo you liked and the red text in my design "All I want is…" I thought the color photo looked funny with the red so I did a black and white. If you have a second, I would love to know if you like this option any better :) Thanks so much for your feedback on my design too!! http://www.minted.com/design-rating/175639

Hi Erin, Just worrying about that darn design when you "liked" it. Thanks a bunch. If you have any critiques I'd love to hear them. I like the change you made to "Erin." And don't you keep thinking about the trip and especially our fellow designers? Such a great experience. Miss you.

I just added a new color scheme/photo poll to my design "A Few of My Favorite Things" right after your helpful feedback. I would love to know what you think about the new options.

Hi Erin, thank you so much for responding to my request for info. I think I am going to drive everyone nuts with my file upgrades to my Neon New Year card design. The quality is getting better and the changing the small typography helps. I think this file suffers from the strong orange background making the type vibrate. Something for me to think about if this design is ever printed. Cheers, Robin

Hi Erin, I love your design work. What intrigues me is how your get your native files to look so good for the web. Please tell me how you do this. I work in Illustrator and have tried many different options to get my small type to read well with only limited success. Thanks, Robin

Hey, Erin! I edited my comment, since that part wasn't relevant, and I don't want to influence any opinions during voting. It is my understanding that Minted prefers designs like those that are basically the same design to be submitted as one design, with alternate colorways (like for a boy or girl-specific design, or your alternate textures) submitted in the comments, if you like, to help people see your "vision." So, you would select the colorway you feel would vote best to be the submitted version. With these holiday challenges, it is my understanding that they will consider designs submitted to both of those challenges for both categories, so when deciding which challenge to submit to, you're really just thinking about whether it's more appropriate for special prizes in one or the other, or whether you think it would do better during voting in one challenge versus the other. That's my understanding of things, anyway. You can email designers@minted.com, if you would like clarification on any of that - they are happy to share their preferences (which I am sure change from time to time). You've done a great job of racking up the awards quickly, so you must be doing something right! ;) Best of luck to you!
