Design Challenge for July

July 17, 2014

design challenge head

We’ve had a lot of customer requests and added categories this month already, so let’s have a Design Challenge.

Go to the Wanted: New Cards section of the Forum.

Choose a request made in July. (The challenge applies only to new requests made in July 2014).

Create a card design & upload/submit your new card to GCU.

Once the card is approved−remember, you’re allowed to Fast Track these requests−post the PID# here in the comments section of this post.

I will post all entries in the Design Challenge here on the Community blog. If you want extra exposure (good for your marketing), include a little something in your comment post about the card and/or yourself to get an individual feature. In other words, toot your own horn & you can have the blog post all to yourself.

Designers of the best marketable designs will receive an invitation to pin their card on a special Pinterest board.

The challenge will continue until July 31. On August 1, I’ll begin announcing.

Have fun, y’all!

    These are ideal opportunities for artists to leverage an existing & fitting design – re-purpose if you will OR use the no-charge high quality images of BigStock via GCU’s Stock Card Creations or a really fast start:

    We set shoppers’ expectations to see new cards for the consideration at 48 hours!

    Here’s another. PID#1295884. I really like the simplicity, words of strength and bright colors on this card. A wonderful way to cheer up someone who’s received their first Chemo Treatment.

    Personally, I love creating greeting cards and smile when a customer buys one of mine. I’m proud that they liked my creation and thought the person receiving it would too. It makes me happy to think my work is appreciated.

    Oops. That last July Requested card number should be PID#1303724. This is the Congratulations 1st chemo Treatment card mentioned above.
