If you are a fellow surface designer, you might chase after all those big name brands and companies to land a licensing deal with them. But what if I tell you, that you can start earning money sooner by approaching small or local companies?
Because that's exactly what I do and how I make a living for myself. This makes working on my licensing deals much easier, because I create income, while sending out my portfolio to art directors for licensing.
"Dear Nina, thank you for sharing your experience in a very clear and concrete way!"
I've written a blog post for Sketch Design Repeat to show, how working with small companies works and how this might help you and your business.
