I’m a Minted Judge!

I am a huge fan of Minted, an online community, resource and marketplace for all things stationery. As a paper goods fanatic, I feel like so much of the market is saturated with the same old thing, and Minted consistently produces high quality, beautiful designs.

Minted thrives on their design challenges, which invite participants from around the world to submit designs based on a specific goal. Their fellow community members vote on the designs to decide which will be sold on minted.com, and the winning designers receive cash prizes and 5% commission every time their design sells.

So I am incredibly excited to announce that for the next month or so I will be guest judging the holiday card challenge, their biggest challenge of the year. I’ll be judging alongside Grace Bonney of design*sponge and Elizabeth Mayhew of Woman’s Day, so I am in excellent company. In addition to all of their other amazing prizes—including $5,000 for the first place winner—the three of us will each be handing out a $500 judges’s prize.

Check out all of the design submission details right here. You have until June 10th to submit, so get designing!
