you might be wondering where to start when it comes to actually monetizing your art in the world of fashion print design

If you're like many designers, you likely have stacks of work but are unsure about its quality, who to pitch to, or how to find your ideal clients

You can be a successful print designer without starving for your art, but it will require stepping out of your comfort zone. Embrace the discomfort, for it's there you'll find growth. And with that growth, you can build the life and career you've always dreamed of!
