Eureka peace

Postcard design by Karen Thiessen for a Mennonite church, 2010
How do designs come together? This is a postcard that I designed for a local Mennonite church and it is miles removed from my initial concept. This design came to me while I was sitting in church and I fine-tuned it while visiting with friends at their cottage. In both situations I was relaxed. If you read about ideas and eureka moments, you will learn that solutions often arrive while the mind is relaxed or occupied with something else. Recently ideas have come unbidden while sweeping the porch, riding my exercise bike, taking a shower, and going for a walk.
