Beautifully Awkward Greeting Cards By Emily McDowell

Published 5 years ago

Illustrator, designer, and “truth-teller” Emily McDowell greeting cards are funny, fresh, adorable and painfully relatable. She recognizes the common struggle of expressing oneself in highly emotional and awkward situations, like when we have to congratulate someone we are in love with on their birthday. When our hearts are full of deep feelings, but our minds are frozen, all you can do is laugh, and this is exactly what McDowell gets us to do.

My work reflects our shared human experience, in all its different, messy forms, and I feel most satisfied when something I made helps somebody feel like someone else out there gets them,” writes McDowell.

Former advertising art director, writer and creative director McDowell returned to her roots by drawing and creating ad-unrelated stories. After putting her one whimsical “Awkward Valentine card” on Etsy, she met with unexpected viral success, eventually making an entire series of Awkward Cards.
