Hi there! Thanks for this class! It was very informative and got me thinking more about where I want to take my brand. I’m a graphic designer with a background in interior design, so my natural inclination is environmental graphics and furnishings.
I also like to make pillows as a hobby. My ah-ha moment was when I was searching for fun fabrics to make some pillows and thought ‘I can design my own graphics/patterns for these.’
Last November, I opened a Society6 shop (https://society6.com/succinctstudio) since they are a turn-key print on demand resource. It’s been fun to see my designs come to life on their product offerings.
I’m still getting my ‘sea legs’ and incubating ideas for where I want to focus more. I think my next steps are to explore other print shops, like Printful and Spoonflower, since I can link these to Etsy. I definitely need to focus more on building my brand and cultivating relationships. Lots to do and excited to dig deeper!
