Kennedy Gives a Hoot
Kennedy Creative, based out of Austin, TX, takes events from fine to fabulous. Helen from KC contacted me through my Etsy shop in search for the perfect holiday card. She loved one of our templates but wanted to incorporate an owl them to tie in with the St. Jude owls from West Elm that they were giving to each card recipient. Not only does Kennedy Creative have a good work ethic, but they also believe in giving back. Of course, I was 100% on board with that!
While in the process of working with Helen, I was in Austin's downtown West Elm, and the person helping my friend and I out mentioned how we made his day by donating to St. Jude's. I told him about Team Kennedy's holiday cards and how they were making a donation with each one, and he said, "OH, are you working with someone named Helen?!" What a small world! I had no idea that they were even located in Austin. I showed the sales associate the design we were working on from my phone and told him that it inspired me to find a few ways of my own in which I could give back this year. He asked for a business card and talked a little about the design collaborations they do with local artists. It would be SUCH a long shot to ever work with a company like West Elm, but you never know how the wheels of this crazy world will end up turning.
Huge thanks to Helen, Kennedy Creative, and West Elm for giving back this year. You're such an inspiration!
This is how the cards turned out.
