About Aspacia Kusulas

I'm a graphic designer from Mexico of Greek heritage, currently based in sunny Southern California. When designing stationery I love to experiment with different forms, type and colors to create an eclectic style. An affinity for vintage with fresh and modern touches; a passion for bold, coupled with a pinch of whimsy; my creative is fueled by all the exciting things and passions I have for life and all of the amazing people that have inspired me, especially minted's designers community.

Thank you for your comment on Looped Love. It's what I was hoping to hear. I've been trying to figure out how to add florals and nothing is coming to me. So I'm leaving it simple...I like it that way anyway. Good to now I am not alone. :)

Aspacia, I just have to tell you how much I LOVE your holiday card that you sent!! It is stunningly beautiful with the deep blue and gorgeous script lettering. Wow! Thank you for such a wonderful card - I only wish that I had taken the time to make a custom card too. What printer did you use? I look the color quality and stock, so if you could let me know that would be great. Thanks again and happy holidays!!!
