Every so often, I get to design purely for my own enjoyment. This was one of those projects.
I was browsing Minted’s latest design challenges and came across the “Head Over Heels” invitation contest. The challenge was split up into several different categories, with overall winners selected by the design community, and Editors’ Picks, which are determined by a handful of talented business owners and Mintie VIPs.
It’s fun to design something with very little boundaries, leaving the doors wide open to creativity. If your design is selected as a winner of a challenge, you have the opportunity to sell the design on Minted and accumulate commission off of each sale. It’s a pretty sweet deal, if you ask me!
There were a crap ton of entries in this challenge, so I went into it without any expectations. I was still hopeful for a win, of course, but I told myself beforehand that if I wasn’t selected for anything, it really wouldn’t be a big deal. After all, this was a project that I took on for pleasure.
I decided to focus my efforts on creating a Vegas themed wedding invitation. It’s a city I’ve never been to (that will change after May), yet it has so much appeal to brides and entertainment-loving individuals. I can’t wait to check it out for myself in a few weeks!
To my pleasant surprise, this design landed an Editors’ Pick and came in as runner up for the Vegas category. The odds weren’t in my favor, but Lady Luck was looking out for me!
