A New Product A Day: February 2013

Welcome! This page collects all the products I’m designing as part of a one-month challenge to myself: making one new product a day for the Groundhog Day Resolutions period of February 2nd to March 3rd. If you’re curious why I’m doing this, the post A February Full of Promises goes into the backstory.

Some of the downloadable designs will be available for free download for only a short time, so I encourage you to grab them now. If you have a suggestion, feel free to leave a comment. Thanks, and enjoy browsing!

Printed A5 JournalA print-ready design candidate, sent to my local full-service printer, Papergraphics, to start the costing process for potential production.

Thus concludes the 30 days of new products! Thanks for following!
