Our First-Ever Secret Santa, Artist Portrait Swap

December 06, 2014

It’s become tradition around here to have fun with Holiday/New Year’s Cards and as this year’s holiday season approached, in addition to our normal holiday cards to friends and customers, we wanted to do something new with our artists. We thought about how much we love getting to know the artists who contribute work to our campaigns but about how it’s always a 1-1 connection, us to them and back. We have yet to do much to help connect our artists with each other. That’s why about a month ago we invited anyone who has contributed to a CAN campaign to signup for a Secret Santa Portrait Swap. The idea was that everyone would create a portrait of a fellow CAN artist and receive one from someone else. 39 talented and incredibly diverse individuals of all ages and from all over the world signed up and are now receiving their gorgeous portraits and their first personal contact from another CAN artist! Thanks to everyone who participated! Take a look at their work:

Bonus Selfies!! I'll keep adding them as they come in:

Meet Annie Riker, a See America Artist Who Inspired Merrell Shoes & Wyeth Hats!

June 10, 2021

We'd love to tell you about Annie Riker, an artist out of Asheville, North Carolina. She's a surface designer and illustrator who over the years has contributed her national park posters and sticker designs to CAN. This spring her Appalachian Trail design inspired two See America product launches, Merrell trail running shoes and Wyeth hats! Annie is a former Creative Director for the NPCA and we're so grateful that her national park expertise, love of nature, creative spirit and illustration skills landed her in our community where her work can do so much good. You can see Annie's designs online at CAN and be sure to check out her Merrell trail running shoes and Wyeth hat project, too, all helping support Earthjustice organization. We know you'll enjoy reading all about Annie!

Know who loves the outdoors and helping good causes as much as we do? Merrell! We enjoyed our first collaboration with them so much we did it again – introducing a new line of trail running shoes inspired by See America posters of our nation's most celebrated through-hikes, the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail and the Continental Divide Trail. One part inspiration and one part commemoration, the new shoe collection helps support Earthjustice organization. Integral to this project are the amazing poster designs from artists Brooke FischerJonathan Scheele and Annie Riker, and we hope you really love reading the story of how this project came to be. Huge thanks to Merrell for always being down to party with us in support of a worthy organization, not once but twice!
