There’s no denying it; we are wildly proud of our interns here at Hallmark. Every summer, we welcome a cadre of college creatives who consistently surprise and amaze us. The Hallmark summer interns of 2015 are no different. We couldn’t keep their talent to ourselves, so we’re sharing some of their art with you today!
From Ellie Wright: The theme of my desktop wallpaper is dreams. Growing up in Kansas City, I’ve always been passionate about Hallmark and the creative energy it brings to our city. So to say this internship is a dream come true would be an understatement! I wanted this wallpaper design to reflect my excitement about this internship and Hallmark in general. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here. It’s definitely lived up to the dream.
From Nan Sinchai: I am a big believer in staying optimistic. For my desktop wallpaper, I wanted to create a background that reinforces that positive attitude. I like to keep my desktop clean and organized, so I decided to make something light, simple, and straightforward by emphasizing the lettering. The lettering style reflects the feeling and meaning of the word itself.
From Mariya Pilipenko: Working at Hallmark and being around all the amazing artwork and passionate people has given me such an abundance of creative energy. This project was the perfect outlet for me to express that Hallmark spirit. When I illustrate, I get lost in the details, colors, shapes, lines,f and imperfections. My goal with this wallpaper is to create something for you to pause and get lost in as well. Enjoy!
From Sara Bicknell: Being around so many talented artists here at Hallmark has been inspirational. Seeing their techniques has encouraged me to use traditional media more often instead of just digital. The bee wallpaper was pulled from a sketchbook I’ve been keeping during this summer to practice using media such as gouache and watercolor.
From Elisa Martin: With this wallpaper, I wanted to create something simple but quirky at the same time. The talent here at Hallmark constantly pushes me to design something fresh and new. I truly wanted to embody all of those elements in my piece.
