“I don’t believe that I would have the career I have today, if I weren’t in the right place at the right time, when all these new ways to sell and reach an audience directly were exploding.“
Graphic Designer / Illustrator, Stacie Bloomfield, was just trying to make some cute art for her newborn’s nursery. After receiving several compliments on the whimsical animals she drew and framed, she decided to sell some of her prints on Etsy. Eight years later, her products are sold in 300 stores and her designs are licensed by major retailers (West Elm, Crate & Barrel, Land of Nod, etc…) and Moda Fabrics. She currently employs eight people at her studio in Springdale, Arkansas. Check out her whimsically illustrated products: www.gingiber.com.
