As a designer I love seeing how other creatives go about their business and so I thought I would share a bit about how we do things here at Nancybird.
I came on board the good ship Nancybird at the end of 2011, just after I graduated Textile Design at RMIT, which was great as I was immediately able to test out all my newly learnt skills without too much time to forget them! My role is pretty varied, which I love, so one week I may be designing new digital prints (messy, painty fun!) another could be coming up with new ways to send out packages to our lovely online customers (keep your eyes peeled for new packaging in the next few months) and another week I might be putting through sales at our crazy warehouse sale (still getting over that one!).
I came to Nancybird as an avid fan of the beautiful products (and owner of a just a few) and something that has struck me as now an insider, is just how much thought goes into everything that is made. Colours, prints, fabrics, leathers, fittings, everything gets lots of attention and consideration. It all has to work well and feel nice and look great. I think this shows through too. I’m pretty chuffed to be part of the process and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing my own print or artwork on a beautiful bag.
Anyway enough gushing! Here is a little sneaky peak into what I have been working on this week – getting messy on my side of the desk with paint.
We’ll see how this one turns out…
