As part of one of my modules, Creative Industry Practice, Accelerator- a company helping with business coaching for freelancers, self employed, business owners and startups has given us the opportunity to be part of the Christmas market at Brick Lane in London this December. Engaging in the business side of graphic design and learning about pitching work to clients, building a brand and setting up a small shop basically is definitely going to be a great learning experience. For this, we will need to:
- Develop a collective brand
- Design and create products
- Develop a promotional plan
- Propose a display for the market
My group will be making stationery like notebooks, pencils and things you can use and keep after Christmas (won’t be making anything with Santa on them) bringing together our shared love of the simple and clean. Bringing forth my inner passion/promoter/planner/financier and social media expert to work together all at once, let’s go!
