When I was researching graphic design today at uni, I came across this company called Quill & Fox and GOSH DARN I want to run my own business and work for myself and work overseas and get to draw nice things all day from home and get my stuff stocked in stores across the world
but then I research how to start my own business and good lord it makes me panic a little bit
Hello! I hope this isn’t too random
or creepy—but the new tumblr has made it possible now to show untagged mentions of the things I track (like our shop name.)
I just want to say thank you, and that you shouldn’t feel so daunted at the prospect at all :) The key is to move at a pace you’re absolutely comfortable with. Take only the risks you are able to and learn as you go.
I wish you the best!
