Personal Project Turned Paid Gig


The number one question I always receive is “How do I get client work?” and my answer is always by working on personal projects! That’s exactly how this limited-edition chip bag came all about.


Stacy’s carefully selected six artists to create limited edition Stacy’s Pita Chip bags that reflect a phase in the Rise – their vision for the unique journey women business founders take towards achieving success. Each limited-edition bag comes with a signed print from the artist!


When I was contacted for this project, they pulled the 2 digital collages above for the direction they wanted to see the bag design to go in. I created these 2 pieces just for fun! In the past I used to create digital collages all the time, but now that my style is more developed, I wanted to see how I would take it to the next level. Plus, this was the perfect project to work on in between paid projects/while waiting on client feedback.

If I didn’t take the initiative to work on a personal project, I never would’ve got this paid gig. If you create high quality self-initiated work on a consistent basis, the clients will come. You’ll start to form a full collection of work that shows a clear vision of your style and ability. From there, clients will know exactly how your work could translate to their own company initiatives.
