24 Jan Ready for Retail!
WOW have I been working hard creating a lot of fun card designs! And I’ve had a blast doing it! Starting this week, I’ll be beginning the Launch program through Raleigh’s Visual Arts Exchange and I couldn’t be more excited! The VAE’s Launch Program is a year-long intensive for retail-minded crafters, makers, and artists who want to further their professional skills and gain retail experience. I applied for this program last year and was so extremely honored and thrilled when I was chosen to be one of only seven talented people chosen to participate in this program!
Meet my fellow Launchers:
I just opened my Etsy shop last year and so far haven’t really immersed myself in the retail market. As a graphic designer, I’ve concentrated all of my talent on developing custom invitations and custom projects for my clients. It has been a challenge for me to create a line of retail designs to sell in stores and there is definitely a learning curve! I’m so excited to soak in everything I can this next year on the retail market and develop a whole new side to my business.
