I often get asked a lot of questions from other designers looking to start up their own business, so I have answered these most commonly asked questions below..
WHAT DID YOU STUDY OR ARE YOU SELF TAUGHT?
As mentioned previously, I studied Interior Design at QUT, which gave me exposure to the programs I use today. I am self taught in graphics.
WHAT PROGRAMS DO YOU USE?
A combination of three programs, InDesign, Illustrator & Photoshop
DO YOU DO YOUR OWN PRINTING?
I outsource the printing with most of my work, especially larger jobs. Being a one-man-band means it is not economically viable for me to purchase all the printing equipment I would need. This has allowed me to experiment and work with some amazing printers and suppliers.
WHO DOES YOUR PRINTING?
I get asked this so often on my Instagram photos. I have spent years building relationships and working with my printers. I don't outsource my printing off-shore, I use local (Brisbane & Sunshine Coast) and interstate (Melbourne & Sydney) suppliers & printers. My recommendation is to find a local printer/ supplier and go have a chat to them about how you can work together.
