Can you share a bit more about your journey as an artist – how you got started to where you are now?

For as long as I can remember I’ve been drawing or painting something, ever since I was a little girl, so it only made sense to pursue a career in the arts. I started as a fine artist and graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. I’ve worked in small design firms, corporate marketing departments, advertising agencies and as a professor in advertising. Now I run my own one-woman design studio.

Professional New Year’s Greetings and Wishes for Businesses

Friendly touch-points with clients and prospects are key parts of the sales lifecycle. If every interaction a customer has with your organization is related to sales, eventually you are going burn them out. For example, constantly being emailed about a “Limited Time Sale” or “One-time Offer” will leave a negative association with emails from your domain.

To counteract this constant selling approach, it might be time to mix it up with a simple “Happy New Year’s” card or greeting. With innovations in digital greeting delivery to replicate the feel of getting a card through the traditional post, these cards can go a long way to make sure your contacts are building positive associations with your brand and more personal relationships with your sales team. 

If you are looking for inspiration of exactly what to say, here are some examples of professional copy you can use with our 2015 New Year’s cards:

What does creativity feel like?

The most notable feeling associated with creativity is the “Aha!” moment, but creativity is much more than that. It is a process of exploration, understanding, progression, inspiration, and allowing one’s mind to rest, daydream, search, synthesize, and evolve.
