How To Earn Money From Your Creative Designs
If you love being creative and would like to get your designs out there to the world, you could potentially earn yourself some cash as well. Being creative for some means relaxation time and can provide some welcome stress relief. Imagine combining these and getting the best of both worlds!
Do what you love and be rewarded!
It doesn’t matter if you draw, paint or create digital designs; there are ways that you can earn some money through doing what you love. You could create many pieces and set yourself up with a local market stall. Passers-by may take notice of your artwork and decide to buy one. The number of people who attend the market on any given day will limit your audience, however. Market stalls will also usually cost a set amount of money upfront to pay for your spot.
Have you considered opening a gallery?
If you have many completed artworks and some financial backing, you might consider opening up a gallery display of your work. For many this is simply not possible, although it will be for some. People can then be invited to come to your opening and the works of art will be on display. This is a great way to get your work noticed by others and to show them your individual style and talent. Talent scouts often attend these events as well. You just never know when someone else might notice your artwork.
Stand out above the rest when it comes to digital design!
If you are a digital designer, it might be harder to get your work noticed by the population. You could speak to local businesses to ask if they would like a redesigned logo or specific digital art for promotional flyers or packaging. If you can tailor your design specifically, this could see your work used by a number of businesses. Word of mouth is often crucial in this industry. It can really help someone build a career from the bottom up to much greater heights. You have to put in the hard work, share your ideas with others, and be prepared for some knock-backs. They are all part of the learning process and everyone has to start somewhere.
People could choose your design to be printed!
There are also some online sites that will allow you to upload your artwork for sale. This could be a great idea if you are starting out and would like to get a feel for the popularity of your designs. You may be able to earn a commission every time someone chooses your design. Maybe you will see your specific art on a t-shirt or a coffee cup! This is a great starting point for budding artists everywhere. Just look for a reputable site that will pay you a commission for your design.
