Dust & Dandelions
Illustraiton + Product Design - 2012 to present
Dust & Dandelions is a brand I created in late 2012, featuring prints, stationery and more. The target market of this brand is females 20+.
Dust & Dandelions’ designs are mainly centred on nature and are reminiscent of older styles of drawing but I also use modern techniques such as laser-cutting and digital illustration. Dust & Dandelions’ products are sold in national and international retail outlets, as well as on my own online store and social media channels.
Having my own business taught me many skills including:
Time management and self-motivation
Dealing with customers, suppliers and retailers
Social media and marketing
e-commerce management and design
Thinking about design as well as profitability
