Christmas in May
Time for the 2010 Minted.com Holiday Challenge!! My first design is up on their site for submission. What do you think? Would you send this to your friends & family?
You can tell me and the other contributors what you think of their work. Just head over to Minted.com & comment (or do it here!). The submission deadline isn't for a few weeks, but posting the designs early is a great opportunity for designers to receive feedback, not just from each other, but from potential customers. We can then tweak the designs before the judging begins. It is much appreciated if anyone has a moment to cruise over there.
A fun bonus feature Minted.com is providing designers is the handy badge in the right column of the blog. Click there & it takes you straight to my design :) Finally!! So easy! Love those Minted peeps!
A note about yesteryday...I'm learning a lot doing these challenges. Some of you may have noticed a post I put up yesterday, promoting this challenge, but took down. Sadly, I had to majorly edit my design. It was brought to my attention how close it was to another design, submitted before mine & by an experienced contributor. It's not against the rules to have similar designs, but I felt the professional thing to do was revise my submission. It's not like I don't have more ideas :) So, I took it as an opportunity and hear we are talking about a new design!
