"Cornflakes of Champions"

Last year I created a birthday card for Jonny showing him sitting at his desk in his new role as Marketing Director at Unilever Israel. Telma kosher food products is owned by Unilever Israel and the Israeli professional basketball player Omri Casspi endorses Telma cornflakes, dubbed the "Cornflakes of Champions". Jonny recently met Omri and so his wife asked me to create a birthday card for him showing the two of them together. Jonny is not a particularity short guy, but Omri is tall. 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m) tall. I was kind to Jonny on his card though - after all, it was his birthday - and only hinted at their, ahem, height difference! Both guys are holding a box of Telma cornflakes between them.
Maor likes basketball. I have created many birthday cards for him along that theme over the years. For this year's card I focused on the hoop. Slam dunk!
Finally, Nadav likes Manchester United Football Club. Once again, I have made him several Man U. cards over the years. His Grandma is a regular customer of mine. This time I crafted a red and black striped scarf and put the team crest in the centre. The Hebrew letters on the card spell out his name and the greeting says "Happy Birthday to Nadav my dear grandson".

Fun sporty designs! The cornflakes remind me of being a little girl. There is a cereal here called Wheaties (just like cornflakes but made from wheat) that always used high profile athletes to endorse it.
