Business Tips and Resources for Artists and Designers
Back in 2012, I started an art blog…
I built and grew the A Place for Creation creative community and eventually turned the site into a membership community which had around 500 members – My intention here was to make it into a platform where creatives could support each other. I also launched the promo hashtag (#bigartboost) that has been kicking it on Twitter since January 2014. However, I decided to call it a day on APFC after 5 years as I was getting busier with client work, I was exhausted and my heart just wasn’t in it anymore so I decided to create a new concept that would work for me.
My clients were almost always small creative business owners who were predominantly artists or designers running online shops selling their designs but as I have grown, my client base has shifted so this page serves as sort of an archive for all of the business tips and resources for artists and designers created during the APFC era. They have been slightly adapted to align with my business as it is now.
As a small creative business owner myself, I know how hard it is to get started selling your designs so I decided to create a discounted service for Artists & Designers to help them create an online presence for their creativity.
This package is ideal for artists and designers who need a good foundation for their online home and want to move on from bootstrapping their own websites and using online website builders that are confusing and take up so much of their precious time and money.
Creative Foundations includes a shop front and blog so that you have all the tools you need to sell your creativity to the world.
