Monday Giveaway and Feature: Ruby Red on Fire Graphics - Closed

Congratulations AndreaDesigns, you are the winner of this giveaway!

This week's featured shop is Ruby Red on Fire Graphics

Yini of Ruby Red on Fire Graphics is a trained Interior Designer who started playing around with Photoshop in 2007 when she was creating a banner for her Etsy shop. She really liked the process and began making more which she put up for sale. After she sold a few of her designs, Yini was hooked.

Some of Yini's favorite custom banners she created can be found at:


Yini will be closing her Etsy shop soon and continuing to sell primarily on Artfire. She will continue to keep up her blog where she provides helpful information for crafters and artists who sell their work online. Yini can also be found on Facebook, Twitter, Flickr and Polyvore.

Yini also sells jewelry supplies such as beads in her Red Ruby on Fire shop on Artfire, and some of her photography at RedBubble. Yini is also working on a book on Malaysian hawker food which should be out on Blurb sometime in February. She is currently a student, working towards a new career in hairdressing - multi-talented!!

It's difficult to pick just one, because many of them are for "virtually" the same thing - banners, business cards, etc. - but if I had to pick one based on the colors and styles alone, it would be this one:

I think I would choose ' a little bit funky' as I love the colours. Though I would love to have a custome design complete package, as I have only just started my blog and want to use it for promoting my business.
Thanks heaps for this opportunity.
