*Weekly Newsletter* – Tuesday 1st October

Hello Customers!

Well it’s officially the first day of Autumn – we hope everything is golden where you are!

This is a recap of our 2nd Weekly Newsletter – bringing to you all the updates and happenings within the Cleverbug Community! This week we’re sharing with you some exciting news and juicy insights on:

  • A Cleverbug Re-Brand
  • Customer of the Week
  • Meet the Cleverbugs: Simone Crowley

A Cleverbug Re-Brand

At Cleverbug, we are always looking for ways to improve and take customer feedback very seriously. We heard you loud and clear when you said you love our app, but don’t quite love our name – and so, we made a decision.

 “Cleverbug” is becoming “CleverCards” – the smartest way to send greeting cards!

Now isn’t that clever… Stay tuned to see the change coming soon. We’ll have a new logo, app icon and whole new website and app user interface design. We think you’ll love the sleek new look and next week we’ll be previewing some of the new visuals and artwork.

Customer of the Week

This week our chosen customer is the ultimate Cleverbug advocate! Her name is Kristin Oxford from Georgia. Kristin has sent 16 printed cards to her friends and family since she started using Cleverbug in February 2013! Here’s what she has to say:

Cleverbug's Newest Team Member - Simone Crowley

Cleverbug’s Newest Team Member – Simone Crowley

We’ve just had a brand new ‘Clever Clogs’ join the Cleverbug creative team – she’s our new Lead Graphic Designer, Simone Crowley. We’re super excited to have Simone on board with us and we also hope you love all the new CleverCards that she will be adding to the store! So you can get to know Simone a little better, we’ve thrown some questions her way..

Where are you from?

Dalkey, Co Dublin. Ireland. 

What do you do and what is your role at Cleverbug?
My role is Senior Graphic Design Team Lead. My team and I design the cards that are available in the store. We research new trends and are constantly coming up with new ideas to keep everything fresh.
Who or what is your inspiration?
I have a huge collection of design, illustration and animation books where I get inspiration from. There is such a massive amount of creative talent online these days that I read a lot of design blogs too. I studied animation so I have always loved Mary Blair’s style of concept work. I also collect kids’ picture books as the illustrations are fantastic.
What is your favourite food?
Mexican
Can you tell us an interesting fact about yourself? (hidden talent, strange habits etc. etc.)
I’m learning to knit in my spare time, so far I have done a lot of scarves! Plus a tea cozy for my dad in his team colours 😀
Are you funny… of course you are! Tell us a joke?
Q. What do you call a man with a seagull on his head?
 A. Cliff 
If you were an animal, what would you be and why?
My cat Edward, simply because he has the best life ever!
What do you enjoy most about Cleverbug?
I’m so lucky to have a job where I am creatively challenged all day long! It’s wonderful we can design cards for so many different occasions. It’s a such a great feeling when you receive a card in the post, I like to place them on my mantel piece and keep them there as a memento. I love to imagine that around the world people are doing this with the cards that I have created!
Say “Hello” to Simone at simone@cleverbug.com or simply leave your “Welcome” comment below! You can also find her on Twitter: @simonecrowley
We hope you enjoyed finding out a little more about our people this week!

“I’ve used Cleverbug so often because of the quality of the printed cards, the ease of use of the app and the ‘wow’ factor in creating something unique. It lets me order a custom card, for the same or less cost as a store-bought card, and it can be personalized and sent for mailing in under 5 minutes without leaving the house! I love Cleverbug!”

Thanks Todd and Lana for all your support!

September is National Women’s Friendship Month!

There is something special about friendships between women. It doesn’t matter if we met them at the playground, in college, at work or in the neighborhood; they are always there to laugh with us and love with us, listen to our problems and lend us a shoulder to cry on when we need it.
