This week I definitely felt like a new beginning took off. I had so many good things come to me career-wise it was really refreshing especially after the funk I have been in since Minuteman.
Earlier this week I was hired as an on-call/freelance graphic designer for a small design studio based in LA, CA and Honolulu, HI. They specialize in motion design, but the owner is transitioning from graphic design to motion design and wants to give his graphic design projects to me.
I started a freelance relationship with a soccer lifestyle store doing small t-shirt designs called Anthem and they are also based in California. I’ve already done some designs for them.
My artwork was accepted into a small exhibition called ADA 24 Celebration at the Institute for Human Centered Design that is celebrating the 24th anniversary of the ADA act – that protects people with disabilities.
I started an internship with a travel website called Jetsetter Gypsy and she wants me to contribute editorially and do travel horoscopes each month.
Today, I submitted a design proposal to a potential client up in North Conway, NH for another t-shirt design project.
I also went to Hyannis to get my print mounted for the IHCD exhibit and had a really good experience at Michaels with their custom framing department. Definitely made the $40 I spent getting it mounted and framed worth it. My mom and I also checked out the artist shanty’s that I learned about this week as well. Orleans, MA has a few but the information person there said that I should start with the Hyannis location first as it is more established. OMG I can’t believe I’m planning for next year already.
I’m really excited for the next several weeks. I have competition results, exhibition results, and more results. Lol I feel really good about them. This hope this summer closes out in the way I foresee it to.
