When I launched Design Pique Studios I began with incredibly low expectations. No kidding.
I expected people to be protective of their mail ids, for one thing. I thought they wouldn’t want to trust someone whose work they hadn’t even seen. I thought that the exposure was very less anyway, so the orders would come at a sluggish pace.
Then I began to get some. Small amounts, as I’d expected, but they came, and I put my entire soul into them. Then the orders began to flood in. And I lost my sanity. But I took them in and developed them, and I worked my way towards now.
Design Pique has been a very important part of my life for the past six months. In those six months I have met customers unique in personality and taste, and even in the way they cooperate. 😉 I have gained what I wanted most of all through it- experience. A lot of experience, that’s for sure.
And now that I’ve come this far with it, I’ve decided where I want to go.
How is Design Pique changing?
I’ve come to realise that this platform can do more than remaining an outlet for my passion for design. In a month or two’s time, Design Pique Studios will become Pique Studios.
Pique Studios will continue to have the free blog designs and book covers it offers, along with animated videos, art prints, apparel, products and more to come. The work ethic will be entirely rethought, the process made easier and quicker and much more versatile.
Well, what can I say? It feels amazing to watch my design studio grow and I can’t wait to see it move beyond being just that. A huge shoutout to all of you who’ve been so supportive- I’m more grateful than you’ll ever know. 😀
I hope you guys are looking forward to the changes that are to come!
Now that we’re through, let me quickly put in the pictures I took for challenge #3 in Hannah’s photography challenge, Springing Into Life.
The spot on Vines is still open, so you can go here and tell Hannah if you’d like to join in.
This time’s category was Light Pink.
This photo has an interesting story- We were travelling this one time and I came across the best sunset I had ever seen. Where I live the sunsets are, sadly, bland and lifeless, so I was naturally taken by this one and had to get some pictures. 🙂
The category for the little challenge was Sparkly.
The picture is an explanation enough, don’t you think? 😉
Thanks for sticking around, and the best to everyone taking part in SIL! Hope to see you again next time.
