About sarasponda

I don't have any formal design training - everything is self-taught. But growing up with a graphic designer for a father meant I got to play with all the tools from a young age (what 5 year old gets to play with a set of Prismacolor Markers in every imaginable color?) Now design is one of my creative outlets - and I love being connected with other designers on Minted. When I'm not designing, I'm working my day-job or taking care of my adorable daughter who was born in November 2010.

I like the look of the black sky with clouds on you "A-haunting" design, but I could only view the thumbnail image. For some reason, I can't see the design when it goes to the design page (the image won't load). It may just be the site at this moment (or my computer), but you may want to check that it loads on your end to make sure it's just me. Good luck!!! :)

Hi, Sarah! Thank you for your comments on my "Arrow" design. I really appreciate it. I love your Ker-splat design in this challenge! That white space is perfect :)

Sarah, thank you for taking the time to design for us - we so appreciate it. Congratulations on your placement! (Justin is sad that he can't have "Lovey Dovey" - he got such a kick out of the birds!)
