Happy, Happy Birthday Card Challenge: No. 9

Mandy Gordon is one of those designers who has been with Minted since the beginning, and her illustrations always leave an impression. As her 9th Place win of $100 for “Bloom” shows, voters have also taken notice of her illustrative prowess and have awarded her a spot in the top 10.  Maybe I’m just a sucker for illustrative type, but her floral type just takes my breath away. The blossoms have so much personality and substance, while still feeling very delicate. Laid out against a rich cocoa background, the bright type sets this design apart and leaves us begging for more. Mandy’s made quite the splash with her imaginative and personable illustrations, such as this adorable clown from the recent  Make A Wish Children’s Birthday Party Challenge. “Bloom” is no exception, and we are thrilled to congratulate Mandy on a well-deserved win.
