Designers have their hands in everything, from print to web, but maybe you also knit or draw, or spend your time perusing the aisles of your local craft store with wheels turning. Perhaps you’ve created items and friends say, “You should open an Etsy shop.” What happens next? How should you price your item, where should you sell it?
At this presentation, designer Jess Moore will be speaking about what’s she’s learned over the past four years of making products, from the beginnings with illustrated prints to launching her current business of making laser cut, layered, home decor pieces. She’ll explore pricing, as well as potential sales outlets. If there’s time, she can touch on a copyright issue she encountered along the way.
ABOUT JESS: Jess Moore is a graphic designer with 15 years experience and holds an MFA in Integrated Design; her art is the perfect antidote to a career in corporate design. The work bridges digital and analog while using new technology to construct layered, laser-cut, stained wooden scenes that are stitched together to recreate the landscapes that she loves throughout the Rocky Mountain West.
Previously Moore worked for professional services firms, and after spending 8 weeks nestled at a camp in Pike National Forest in the summer of 2015, she launched her business to both engage my passion for the mountains and goal to never going back into an office.
