For all the criticism it faces, Facebook does have it pluses. For example, yesterday morning, this was in my feed:
Many stationery designers dream of seeing their work on home accessories & wall décor — two very exciting and hot categories — and this little classified ad may be the first step in getting there. As far as I know, A Fresh Bunch (AFB) is the only community of its kind, and it has a limited number of spots available in its roster this summer.
While there is a fee to join ($500/year; or four quarterly payments of $160), you do get a lot that you can’t really put a price tag on, namely, training, introductions and a supportive community to hold your hand and cheer you on. The best part: Once you sell a design, AFB takes care of all the dreary math stuff. If you are interested, visit afreshbunch.com/join to learn more.
In the meantime, enjoy these summery designs from AFB members (top to bottom): Petra Wolff, Alice Potter, Allison Holdridge and Zoe Wodarz. Who knows what surface they will be adorning the next time you see them?
