Cheers, Creative Enthusiasts,
I am so happy to share with you some work that Giant Leaps Creative recently completed for my colleague and friend, Ellen Watkins. Ellen has been on fire this year conceiving, writing, illustrating and launching a book in time for the holidays. As she worked on her website and creative mission at ellenjennywatkins.com, she realized that she wanted to take her project to the next level. It became apparent that she needed cohesive and consistent modern branding that reflected her tastes and creativity. I am honored that she came to GLC to get the job done. We truly had fun collaborating on the project together, and I'm pleased with the results. Without further ado, here is some background on her mission, her book, and images showcasing the logo work, as well as her book that she recently completed.
Ellen Jenny Watkins’ mission is to create ‘A million nuggets of happiness’ – because when we touch those around us with happiness, they take that forward to their circles and it helps heal the world. Ellen is an artist who creates beautiful cards, is a Desire Map Facilitator, and inspiring speaker. All this to help strong passionate women connect to themselves and others…because it matters to us all.
In her own words:
“Because the world needs more happiness. Because if we touch one person with kindness and joy, we affect their circles and begin a ripple effect. If we can create a million little nuggets of happiness and connections, imagine the ripples it creates. The world will be a better place for us, those around us and those who come after us. Share a little happiness. Today.
I’m on a mission to re-connect with my creative spirit and spread some happiness. And, I’m helping others do the same through workshops, coaching and beautiful art cards. I’m using the many skills I learned along the way to Write, Create and Facilitate these lessons so you, in turn, can take those to your circles and continue to spread these ripples throughout the world.”
“Happiness is not something ready-made. It comes from your own actions.” — Dali Lama
