As I reflect on 2012, the one word that keeps popping up is gratitude. Gratitude for my family and friends who are always there, supporting and cheering me on in all my endeavors—no matter how silly they were! And gratitude to my clients because without them, Marigold Design would not exist. 

2012 was a very busy year. I didn't complete Marigold's new website but I had the honor of designing three different websites, working with each client from the very beginning stages of their branding—from logo developing to selecting color palettes for their brand. I redesigned a catalog (which took the whole year), an annual report, signage for various holiday shops for a retailer, direct mail campaigns and ads for various clients, along with posters, trade-show graphics and numerous logos. Yes, it was indeed a very good year and I am grateful. 
As 2012 comes to an end, I would like to thank everyone that made it possible—from the copywriters, programmers and design assistants—to friends, family, clients, fans, and followers. Thank you! 
Wishing all of you a Happy + Colorful 2013 filled with Many Days of Gratitude!
