Recently a souvenir company in Slovakia found my work on Etsy and Flickr, they approached me to do some laser cut magnet designs for them. Timing of this event really couldn’t have been more perfect for me.
It seemed like a wonderful compliment that this company actually hunted me down in the first place. As a bonus they actually seem to like my work and don’t ask for a million changes on the designs I provide. Sadly they didn’t pay me enough so that I can now quit my day job, but they have done something wonderful… they have reminded me that I am a good designer with the ability to pretty much nail briefs for clients. They have given me the confidence to call myself a designer again – something which I’ve been desperately needing of late.
This folk girl is (part of) the third of five designs which I am creating for them.
