"Creativity is Intelligence Having Fun!" a quote by Albert Einstein is one of my favorite sayings about creativity.   This short quote embodies how I feel about graphic design.   The spirit of this quote is what the feeling of Beach Pause Designs is all about, a collection of fun! 


Welcome to Beach Pause Designs, where you can find classic, light hearted and sometimes humorous designs for your gifts and personal use. I am Ann Richmond, a critical care registered nurse turned graphic designer, and I love to create templates that are easy to customize and fun to receive.

Beach Pause Designs is the result of my lifelong dream and creative passion. Now professionally trained in graphic design, I use the Adobe Suite of products, especially Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Photoshop, to create not only original and artistic,  but also quality graphics for my clients. Most of my designs are made with vector graphic files, which allow you to resize and recolor them without losing quality.

I work with Zazzle, a leading online marketplace, to print and ship your orders. Zazzle handles all the details of your order, from processing to delivery, and also takes care of any changes, cancellations or returns that you might need. I receive a royalty payment for each order that features my designs. That's why I love the print on demand business model!  I can focus on what I do best: designing!

If you are looking for gift options that are user friendly, stress free, and great to receive, you have come to the right place. Browse through my collections and find your favorite design today!
