Big news today! Some great! Some sad.  Let’s get the bummer out of the way first, shall we?

Our good friend (and my wife) Ellie Snow has decided to leave OK Great to better focus on her work. If you don’t know, she’s an awesome designer in the process of starting her own stationery shop. You can also read about her work and her many inspirations on her blog. So everyone say farewell and wish her luck on her ventures!

Now, if you learned anything from Mufasa + Elton John, you should know that an ending can also mean a new beginning. And in that spirit, I’d like to introduce you to TWO new contributors we’re bringing on board! We’re very excited to have these two, so please show them some love!

CAROLIN HARRIS | DURHAM, NC

Carolin is a graphic designer in the Bull City, living in bliss with her husband, baby daughter and their two dogs. She lives for beautiful design, type, packaging and photography—all while obsessing about running and yoga. A German at heart and on paper but a left coast-all-the-way lover, maybe one day you’ll find her back where she belongs.
