It was a busy end of June taking in the CSM and New Designers degree shows plus 4 talks at the latter event. In addition, I also attended a Meetup networking event for freelance surface pattern designers organised by the lovely Her Print Studio in Bethnal Green. This is something I will definitely attend again as there were some lovely people there and everyone eager to share their experience of working in the industry. It can feel so insular working from home day in and day out and not speaking to people in your tribe doing exactly the same thing as you!
It does make me wonder how all this would be a lot harder to do if I were not living in a happening thriving city like London.
July’s got to a nice start with a long weekend in Norfolk for my birthday which was such a treat! The salt marsh landscapes in summer and birdlife is quite a sight.
