My wife Jess and I are graphic designers who are leaving our day jobs at the end of July and pursuing independent graphic, photographic and video work full-time.
In addition, we have also launched a Kickstarter campaign to get a pilot program going for what we hope will develop into a nonprofit creative services business.
This project, affectionately known and branded as DesignCan—in reference to our fiberglass
can (16' Scamp
trailer), will offer free design services to artists, entrepreneurs, and small institutions in need a visual media like websites, photos, print collateral, etc., but may not have a budget to hire someone. Rather than let that important piece of the equation fall
to the wayside, DesignCan would do the design for free, our fee would be covered through crowd sourced funding. Eventually, we hope to turn DesignCan into a network of creatives who get paid fairly for their work, but get to provide meaningful work for folks with interesting projects of all sorts.
Please check it out! We are hoping to travel the country and meet folks that could use design themselves. Our office is our Scamp
