Our goal was to create custom Christmas card in different designs and variations. We've been running on a tight schedule.
Both the communication, the agreed delivery time and especially the quality of the delivered designs met our expectations perfectly. We'll definitely be working with Natalia again!

Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
Our organization’s mission is to capture life’s big moments and transform them into custom pieces of art worthy of hanging on your wall. Every product we sell has an element within it that is customized to the individual and commemorates an experience or accomplishment. The designs within our portfolio are eye-catching and timeless, and should be able to stand on their own as pieces of art even without the custom element.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
*** UPDATE *** We have extended our contest by 2 days and are looking forward to seeing more designs!
We're going to use the chosen design(s) as a template for a couple's family tree that they could display on their wall. The design itself doesn't have to be a tree per se, but there should be an interconnectedness to the design that a viewer could interpret as "this couple was preceded by several generations." We're aiming for 4 generations, with the option to include children of the main couple (30 ppl + Children) making a potential total of 5 generations. We will be modifying names within the design after it is complete, so it is critical that the text fields for the names be editable (do NOT rasterize text elements). Ideally, when the design is seen from across the room it would look like a piece of art, but upon closer inspection, one could actually trace the family's history.
Natural elements within the design are okay, but what we aren't looking for is a bunch of organized text fields with a tree in the background. We would like the names to feel woven into the design. We cannot accept any designs with copyright material (Think Disney fonts, Movie Posters, etc). All fonts, vectors, and images being used in your design must be Free for Use in the Commercial Space or created by you.
