Investing in your craft

Makers, designers, creators, entrepreneurs: I have nothing but hope and respect for you. I have stood where you stand and know what it’s like to weave your way through a messy, unintuitive, perplexing world. Becoming a creative entrepreneur is one of the most courageous things you can do.

At a time when your start-up budget is small to non-existent, you may be left feeling you have no choice but to skip the expensive expertise that could propel you on your way. Without guidance you find yourself going in circles, making the same mistakes every new, creative business makes, blocked from breaking through to realize your vision. You may question your very dream.

With this in mind I am here to give you a helping hand. Drawing on my graphic design and brand guardian background I have crafted a selection of free and affordable resources to get you on your way.
