I had some super write-ups recently, they always slightly surprise me (I mean these are people who actually like my work enough to write about it ;-)) and make me very-very happy. One of these were in the Etsy Storque Spotlight, written by the lovely Nathan, this one being perhaps the most significant for me personally as what he seems to see in my work is what I wanted to project, in other words he actually talks in the name of my imagined target market. I did some very basic branding courses, and one of the questions always was “who is your customer?”. When you think about it it’s not that easy, but one of the most important questions you will have to ask yourself as a designer/seller. I imagine my customer being young (whether it’s in years or at heart, doesn’t matter ;-))) funky, with a strong sense of style, who doesn’t mind standing out, and wants to wear unique pieces. And he just sort of reassured me that they are out there. Now I just need to reach them!
I’ve got some other lovely mentions by Nadine of the gorgeous shop The Sea Within, by Lola Smalls Darling at funky Comeupkids, and by our very own super-talented Bunny. I will be listing all the links in a separate section soon. Thank you LOVELY PEOPLE!
