A little shout out and ask for support for my friend and colleague Deborah Velasquez. Deborah has recently launched her Kickstarter project The Large Print Project
For those not familiar with Kickstarter, it is a crowdsourcing, fundraising platform for all creatives. Individuals dream up a project and ask for support to help back their project. It is a successful platform, with 44% of projects reaching their targeted goal to date.
Deborah is a maker. Her passion is art and design, whether it be hand carving her stamps or silkscreening her scarves.The goal of her Large Print Project is to raise funds to purchase the silkscreen equipment necessary to produce larger, multi-color works of art. The equipment will help create and make in larger quantities and help move her creative business to the next level.
Deborah is passionate about her work. She is a supportive friend and colleague in our design community, always offering up advice or encouragement.
I have enjoyed watching her growth over the past few years.I admire her tenacity. She is always learning and always available with an open mind to discuss new ideas and projects. She enjoys the challenge that art provides and is always ready to tackle a project. This is her biggest one to date!
