I'm a graphic designer working at home. I've worked this way for almost 35 years now. I love graphic design. I work mostly in Adobe Illustrator and create "practical" graphics for shop owners and crafters—useful graphics that supply other hand made artists with tools they can put to work for their businesses.
I've added custom fabric labels for handmade items and folks are loving them! Using 100% prewashed cotton and colorfast pigments—along with my decades of design experience—I'm able to provide those who craft, knit, crochet, sew, quilt more personalized labels with their name or logo added. Beautiful labels for beautiful handmade items.
I'm also a fibre crafter ... sewing, knitting and crochet. The internet, especially Etsy, has made it possible for crafters to share their handmade and unique items to build small family businesses. Their work is so beautiful! but I noticed that marketing efforts could use a boost and the first place to start is in packaging. I saw a need for printables for these shop owners designed with experience and style. A need for shop helps--as graphics-- at a reasonable price. I also build shop graphics for Etsy shops and graphics for Facebook pages as custom orders.
My ideas come from suggestions by store owners, something I saw in a magazine, a season, a color set that intrigued me ... almost anything, really. I love bright colors and am maybe overly fond of fonts and typography.
Enjoy my shop. And please contact me if you have any questions.
