Tour & Ideation Workshop


KU’s IDSA Student Chapter came to Hallmark for a tour and ideation activity in conjunction with the kickoff of KC Design Week.

We showed them around to see what corporate life is like, but also to highlight the unicorns of Hallmark. With hundreds of artists on site it is fun to walk around the studios seeing work on progress.

Another favorite stop of mine is the Time Machine


To finish the day out we rolled up our sleeves to brainstorm and prototype some concepts for Christmas 2018 product line. I look forward to seeing the floating Christmas tree in stores soon.




It was energizing having the students on campus. I look forward to working with them more in the future. We actually have project starting with the Junior Studio next week. So I will get to see a lot more of those students.
