About This Class

This course is for: Artists, Designers, Illustrators and Hand Letterers.

I have been running my own freelance design business for over 10 years and have worked with a variety of clients in the Music, Entertainment and Wine industries. Over the last few years I have began to focus on my niche design style and it has benefited my career tremendously. 

In this course, I have created a simple and effective work sheet that I will walk with you through so that you too can begin to focus on your Niche Design / Creative Art style. We are all unique as artists and by focusing we will have a better ability to determine the direction we want to continue to develop in and become known for. 

Let your style shine as you identify:

- your natural strengths and gifts

- what makes you excited

- what you love vs. don't love to work on

- Do you like to design by hand or on a computer

- what you can learn to become great in your niche

I also will share my personal story of how I discovered my niche style and how it really positively effected my business. 

I look forward to you joining my course and please feel free to ask me any questions! Also I love reviews!
