Rainbow Nods and Winks for Stephen Doyle

There’s a correlation between between luckiness and thankfulness. I’m not certain how to articulate it yet, but I’m working on it. In the meantime, I can say for certain, I owe massive amounts of thanks to massive amounts of wonderful people. I decided to create thank yous by getting cut-and-pastey with the pages of old textbooks I picked up at the Palmer Home Thrift in Starkville, Mississippi (only two dollars per book). I’m committed to getting some of this thankfulness off my chest!

This card is dedicated to the gentleman and poet Mr. Stephen Doyle. Stephen is a design giant, but you’d never hear him even hint at such a thing. He’s a light-hearted, down-to-earth delight of a person. Talent sans ego makes Steven a rare bird. The inside of the card reads…

Dear Stephen,

Thank you for welcoming us new kids to the AIGA board with a lovely party at your lovely home. Thank you for unfailingly offering me a kind smile and astute word, long before I became part of the board. Thank you for getting eaten by neither lions nor mosquitos on your African safari as I’m certain we couldn’t manage without you!


Stephen Doyle Thank You Inside

Stephen Doyle Thank You Outside

Stephen is on his way to Africa now, so the last sentence is a bit premature, but I’m assuming if he receives the card upon his return to New York, it will be true.

    I love this card. I’ve caught a sneak peek of other, emerging constructions and have to say these are shaping up to be a great collection! Can’t wait to see more. I’m so proud of you!

    Along the lines of rainbows, I thought you might like one of my Pinterest inspiration boards based on (mostly rainbow) color: http://pinterest.com/katiejosephson/chroma/.

    Thanks again for the inspiration!
