It was a dusky evening in Fort Lauderdale. My friend and I sat, our faces illuminated by the glow of her computer, our eyes dry and tired.

Our mission to find the perfect certificate that she could present to students who had just completed her course in wellness and nutrition.

After having browsed the web for what seemed like an eternity, we gave up in frustration and decided to create our own. The final certificate, replete with a pretty dragon fly, looked so cute we couldn’t wait to create more.

And that, as they say…was the beginning!

PS – Why Free? People ask why My Award Maker is free. It’s quite simple really. We love good design. We think good design should be, like air and water, “FAE” – Freely Available Everywhere!
