This year, one of my goals was to find ways to make handmade design more accessible to everyone. Handmade design has a place in my heart and soul. It's the side of design that I love to be a part of and creating in. The quality of it offers brands and people really unique pieces to help build their look. I find it captivating and am pulled towards its unique ability to draw the eye in. One thing that can be tricky with handmade design though, is its price—and that has aways bothered me. As a designer you have to charge what you are worth—your hours, blood, sweat, and tears. Handmade design is a detailed process that is worth the investment but for businesses or bloggers just starting out, the price can be a make or break.
So, what's the solution here? I hate having turn people away because their budget can't cover what they are after. I believe they deserve access to elements that can get them started on the right foot until they are able to invest further. That's where websites like Creative Market come in. You can find an abundance of goods to help you get up and running. It's also a great spot for so much more. I've found great gems on there like mock-up to help present my work. I'm also seeing bloggers using it more and more to get stock photography or header fonts. I could go on and on about what you can find on the website but the last thing I will say is Creative Market is where you all should be heading to help give projects you are working on an extra boost.
The shop I am building currently contains a selection of handmade fonts and illustrations all done with my own two hands. Each of these products have their own story and creative process that you can read further about by heading over to the shop. Just click the product you are interested below or the shop bottom to make your way there. I am so excited to be able to share these with you all and give you the ability to start making beautiful graphics, logos, wedding invitations, and so much more on your own! If you have any request of fonts you have seen around the blog or in my work, I would be more than happy to hear them! As always—enjoy!
