Creative Postcard Club

May 2nd, 2008 | Posted by Emma in All | Design

The Creative Postcard Club is “a group of professional designers, illustrators, design students and creatives alike from around the world who enjoy corresponding through our own postcard creations.” I have participated in many “rounds” of creating a postcard based on an assignment. Here’s the latest.

The assignment was to design a magazine cover. We were given a choice of three titles, but that was it. The rest of the content was up to the participants. If you’d like to see what the other members come up with, they’ll be posted later in May. (See the link in the blogroll.)

If you’re a graphic designer, be sure to check it out. It’s a really fun way to keep those creative juices flowing! Us quilters and craftspeople know that we hone our skills through practice, but I seldom think about doing that for my job. But really I should! Practice and self-made challenges are great ways to learn new skills, push boundaries and play in new directions…things that aren’t always possible in the parameters of the day-to-day business projects. That’s my two-cents…go out and challenge yourself!!
