Hello fellow designers!
I’m a brand designer and I’ve been doing custom stationery with a small side of brand and packaging work for a year or two now. My packaging portfolio is small because I’ve been doing primarily stationery and brand + website design. Having worked as an architect in a previous (career) life my love is in tangible design so I have decided to specialize in boutique brand + packaging only.
What are your tips for getting jobs when your packaging portfolio is small?
What do you say to potential clients who are interested and asking for previous work/examples?
What’s the best way to grow a packaging portfolio while making some money? (I’m not a student, I’m a full time business owner).
Additionally, I know I can do a great job, and my emphasis is on an intimate collaboration with a solopreneur or small biz owner.
Thanks so much in advance!
