Nuts and Bolts: Dedicate Yourself to the Details

March 20, 2020

Nuts & Bolts – Dedicate Yourself to the Details


It is often the little details that escape the artist’s eye. It is always a good idea to step away from a design that you have been meticulously working on or ask a brutally honest companion to give it a once over.  The review team is certainly a fresh set of eyes and often catches tiny fixes or areas of improvement.  GCU is grateful for artists who are open to collaborating with the reviewers on minor adjustments that make a big difference.
A  small detail can make a big difference.  This example addresses the Submission Guideline:


Reviewer’s Request for Edits:
Because of the smoothness of all the edges on the other graphics, we find that the rough edges of the heart are a little distracting. Would you please smooth the outline of the heart? Thanks. 

Cheers to GCU artist, Sharon Fernleaf, for her excellent edits and collaboration with our review team to create a Happy Hour worthy submission.



The difference is made in the details!

    Mindy, you hit the nail on the head. I always appreciate the guidance of the reviewers and I’m always astonished how right they are and how much better my cards are after I take their advice and change it. Your sample card used is a great example of how cards can be improved by a little tweak.
