Survival By Design Cards

5 May

The Garden City Center Art Festival on June 11, 2011 will feature a multitude of artists, specializing in a vast amount of different artistic mediums including painting, photography, sculpture, jewelry creations, clothing, accessories, wood work, etc.

Jennifer Adler of Survival By Design Cards will bring yet another different dimension to the festival’s diverse structure. Survival By Design’s smartly funny line of greeting cards, prints, and other fun products (including mouse pads, lip balms, and luggage tags) is targeted towards the fabulously frank. The colorful cards, featuring trendy drawn characters saying sassy but honest things, are based upon the artist’s friends and family members as well as personal experiences.

Despite the characters’ lack of facial features, the aim of the cards is to present people of all backgrounds in non-stereotypical situations saying hilarious and true things.

Jennifer holds a BA in Philosophy from Brandeis University and a Professional Certificate in Advertising & Print Design from Rhode Island School of Design. As a Providence-based graphic designer and a Cranston-native, Jennifer Adler will feel right at home at the Garden City Center Art Festival. In addition to her greeting cards, Jennifer also works as a graphic designer full time for a variety of clients, big and small. She is an avid swing dancer, yoga-enthusiast, and vegetarian-on-the-verge-of-becoming-a-vegan. She lives part-time on Boston’s North Shore with her boyfriend, Seth, and enjoys spending time with her family, especially her niece, Livia, and nephew, Brayden.

Survival By Design’s greeting cards are designed and printed in Rhode Island. Additionally, Jennifer has begun licensing out her artwork (find those greeting cards at Target Stores throughout the country!)

Jennifer’s favorite spots to eat are Gracie’s and AS220 Foo(d) in Providence. But for the best vegan Red Velvet cupcakes, she goes to Wildflour Bakery in Pawtucket

“For aspiring artists, just try out an idea and see if it works. I didn’t have a plan in place when I started making greeting cards. I just did it. It also helps if you can set up good business practices as you go. Passion+Talent+Energy+Adaptability+Persistence will get you pretty far.”
