Wow, it’s hard to believe it’s already been six weeks since Blueprint! So many months spent creating oodles of patterns and illustrations in preparation for the big show, and then we blinked, and it was over. Here’s a little recap of how it all went down and where we’re at now:
First, some of our artists arrived from far and wide, including one who came all the way from Slovenia! And then they went shopping (of course, because when in NY…)! But the real fun began the following day with booth set up!
There were so many elements that went into our display - unique 3D banners that brought the work of all 13 of our artists together into an exciting, story-telling mural, art pins, designer booklets, blurb books, sell sheets and even pompoms and flower pens! When we were done, it was amazing and looked like this…
And guess what? We won best booth!
As in previous years, the show itself proved eye-opening! There’s nothing quite like it if you have the chance to participate - being in that environment, meeting with customers, and spending time with fellow artists and designers is inspiring! For us, to reconnect with our existing clients and forge new relationships is always special.
We worked hard, chatted tons and took lots of notes! And of course, tossed in some yummy food and sightseeing for good measure!
Four days came and went and then it was time for take down and goodbyes. We were sad to go but excited for what the future had in store! Until next time NY…
Now that the dust has settled, follow-up with our fabulous clients is well and truly underway. Our artists are cooking up new creations, working with trends, and filling requests as fast as we can go. We have big plans for the year ahead so be sure to watch this space!
