Pick A Card, Any Card

Now showing: Bison Girl Design business cards!

This is the front/back design.
I have over 1,000 of them... do you think our trick-or-treaters would like one with their candy?

Bison Booties

This week I started unpacking my sewing studio.
I couldn't help but immediately dive right back into sewing.

These Bison Booties are for a special baby boy and girl.
My daughter wears her shoes like this everyday. They are the only things that stay on her busy feet. I am thinking about pursuing the idea of making and selling these booties, but I need to perfect the pattern and design first. I'm close ... really close. Stay tuned.

2010 Special: Custom Photo Cards

I don't know about you, but from where I sit, it is beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

You what that means: Christmas card season!
Do you want an extra cool photo card this year?

Basic CMYK

Bison Girl is happy to announce custom photo cards at the 2010 price of $25 per design.

Step 1: You supply the photo, desired text, and artistic direction (if you have a preference)
Step 2: I design a fun and festive card that spotlights your photo(s)
Step 3: You receive a high resolution digital .jpg file that you can have printed anywhere and/or post to Facebook.

Photo cards are normally 4x8, 5x7, 6x7, or 6x8 inches, but I can design to any size.

Sample Cost:
$25.00 Bison Girl Custom Card Design
$14.50 Sam's Club charge for 50 4x8 photo cards, including envelopes
That adds up to only $39.50 for 50 custom cards!

Fine print: You absolutely must own the rights to the photo(s) you supply. This means that you personally took them or you have written permission from the professional photographer. Photo retouching (acne, red eye, color correction, special effects) can be added starting at $15 per photo. Prices apply to single-sided photo cards ordered before December 31, 2010.

This special is good for custom engagement/birth announcement/New Year/Thanksgiving (or just about anything) cards too!

Check out a couple of my past card designs in my portfolio.


To get started, contact me.
Thanks to the wonderful world of technology, you need not live in Bismarck, or even North Dakota to take part :)

Ugly Logo Blog

So last week it was bad photoshop. Today I bring you bad logos: Your Logo Makes Me Barf.

I don't even have words to describe how fantastic this blog is and how totally awful their spotlighted logos are. Sadly, there are way too many bad logos out there to keep blogs like this plenty full of content.

Case in point.
Have you seen the new Gap logo?

You know, GAP. Like the store. Yeah that one.

Anyway, check out the blog for more gems.

Logofest at Bison Girl Design

Wowie zowie.
I've been a busy lady lately. All fun of course, especially the new logos I've been designing for fantastic clients friends.

Designing a logo usually requires many drafts and revisions. It's quite fun to watch a logo come to life and eventually become the final logo.

Here are a few of the logos (and drafts) I've designed recently. Thank you to everyone I've worked with so far, it has been a lot of fun. I hope you're all lovin' your new logos!

As always, I'd be honored and excited to work with you on a logo (or other design work) – contact me for more information.
