Are you thinking about starting your own surface pattern design business? Or, have you started but want some advice on how to grow it? If so, you won't want to miss two awesome events we've prepared for the month of May to help all of you budding entrepreneurs!
On May 14th, our webinar series with Michelle Fifis of Pattern Observer continues with Launching Your Surface Pattern Design Business. Michelle will discuss how to launch your business and reach out to industry contacts in a big way, as well as offer tips on building an online portfolio. She will also explain why having an area of expertise is essential to your new business. As always, her presentation will be followed by a Q&A session. The webinar will be live from 12 pm – 1 pm Pacific Time and will be recorded for those members who cannot make it.
Later that week on May 16th, SPDG will be diving further into the specifics of setting up a business by hosting the in-depth panel discussion How to Start Your Own Creative Business. Our panel will feature an attorney, an accountant, and an entrepreneur who will be fielding both pre-selected and on-the-spot questions about the nitty gritty side of a creative business. Want to know what's involved in getting a business license? Does the idea of filing quarterly taxes vex you? Ever want to pick the brain of someone who's climbed the creative business ropes before? This meeting is for you!
