About Kanika Mathur

I'm a freelance graphic designer from San Jose, CA. I enjoy creating designs that are energetic, striking, innovative, functional & textured. My work is inspired by life in suburbia, my childhood spent in India and anything/everything that I see and feel. It is a pleasure to be a part of the talented and inspiring community at Minted.

Hi Kanika, thanks so much for your suggestions for my leafy antler design - I've put a few options in a poll now including a different font (which sort of sits well with the delicate antlers but am I losing the fun feel of the design?) I also put the merry straight like you suggested and think it looks fab! :)
