About curiouszhi design

I am passionate about beautiful design in every aspect of daily life. My design aesthetic is driven by my love of clean typography and whimsical illustrations. When I'm not designing, I can be found playing the piano or experimenting in the kitchen.

Hi Zhi! I think you made the right choice with the foil. And although I like purple best, I would go with blue since that seems to be the crowdpleaser and the crowd votes! And if it wins I would totally offer the purple as an alternative colorway-- it would be interesting to see how purple fares in the general population. And thank you for the like on my Year in Adventures-- it's the first thing I have designed that I LOVE (and I've only been using Illustrator for three months, so it's hard to love anything I make, haha). Best of luck in the holiday challenges, your collection was AWESOME!
