Can you really tell your better half all the ways you adore him or her in a Valentine’s Day card? This year, skip the traditional greeting card and create personalized gifts especially for your one and only. Shower your loved one with coupons, lists and love notes on the most romantic day of the year.
The postcard is a very versatile tool for artists, designers, and freelancers. Used for self-promotional purposes it can put you in touch with companies, galleries, agencies and design firms. The postcard “begs” to be lavished with your best piece of work. It’s just aching to get “out there” and to start marketing you in a way that no other product can.
Self-marketing with postcards is certainly not a new thing. I can remember being a young creative straight-out-of-college in the UK, trying to get ad agencies to notice my ad work. I thought that I was being oh-so-very-clever by mailing my work examples to hundreds of companies!
If you are an artist, designer, or art-lover living in Southern California then you may be interested in a new magazine that’s trying to get itself launched. It’s called FIND Art Magazine and the goal of the publication is to build an art community by bringing local artists, galleries, companies and spectators together into one “Found” space.
