About robin ott design

A freelance designer for over a decade, Robin spent the beginning of her career as a watch designer in Texas. After returning to her Midwest roots, she focuses on graphic and stationery design. Her love of all things paper is evident by her overflowing collection of cards and paper products. Inspired by the texture of an old barn or the clean lines of a mid-century chair, she draws on her experiences and surroundings to create meaningful designs with her feminine flair.

Hi Robin, I made a wedding inspiration board based on your "Fairy Tale" invitation. Just thought I'd share it with you. Lovely design on the invitation and a dreamy palette to work with. Enjoy! http://www.minted.com/board/1254530 - amber

Thanks so much for your comment, Robin - I had planned to do a boy version but didn't think there would be time, so after I read your comment I decided to try anyway (managed to sneak one in literally seconds before the contest closed!). Also, I wanted to say that I'm totally loving your submissions for this challenge - "Our House" is just brilliantly done :)

Hi Robin. I just read your comment on my design studio. That’s very exciting that you purchased the poster from Land of Nod. It was exciting news when that deal came along. By the way thank you for your comments on some of my entries. I love your sense of design and style.

Thank you so much for the kind comment on"Easter Swashes". I got the idea literally at the last minute and figured if I could do it up quickly and submit before the deadline I'd have a little time to refine before they went to vote. But holy smokes, they switched them all over immediately! I guess that's what I get for working right up to the finish line!

Hi Robin! Congrats on all your awards lately! So, I'm trying to organize an OH mintie meet-up, possibly Oct. 3rd but it's still TBD. I know you're in Cleveland but thought you'd might be interested. Feel free to email me at paige.rothhaar@gmail.com or you can post in the forum. I thought it would be fun to get together with other stationery fanatics and talk fonts, design, whatever....! :)
