Stand…ing! This is a promo poster for my stand at which I was selling my mugs, prints and original drawings I created live on the spot.
It was a new experience for me.
For years I worked ONLY as an illustrator at home, “protected” from direct contacts with audience, but this really helped me realise what it takes to create something, to name it, to come up with ways of selling it, to communicate with people when they are introduced with something that is entirely new for them.
I gained some new respect for marketing experts and marketing in general. Everything is so important: the prodact, the ad, the placement of the objects on the stand.
And of course – your interaction with people. Some would pass by and start to look and you could see that they need some explanation and when I provided some kind of intro it felt like new kind of doors were opened.
