Greeting cards – Redesign challenge

I’m still here folks! I’m still working on new card designs and my drawing entry for the children’s book competition. So busy!

Anyway, just letting you know that I might be sporadic with my blog posts for this month (July) but in August I will be blogging every day yet again. I have another challenge!

When I was studying graphic design, oh so many years ago, I did an assignment where I redesigned an old book cover from the 60’s. It was outdated and had a terrible cover. It was titled ‘How to improve your vision’; in two colours – puke green and white; and it had a 60’s lady posing so glamourously in her mumu dress. I mean that’s just el communicado¬†gone wrong! It had nothing to do with vision or eyes or eye care! So I took photos of people’s eyes put them on a white background and voila! the book had a new spanking cover that communicated exactly what was inside.

So…my next challenge is to redesign a greeting card each day and blog it! I don’t know about you but I tend to keep most of the cards I receive (birthdays, Christmas, goodbyes, goodlucks, congrats etc) and yeah even the crappy ones! So I’ve chosen a bunch of those for next month’s design challenge. It would be difficult and hard work but it will be fun and will get my creative juices going again!
