This photo contains my all-time favorite object in my office: the letters that don’t quite spell out my name (there’s no “L” here since my name is Noël).

Flora Waycott’s Twitter Chat

Flora Waycott’s live Twitter Chat #MatsChats was full of useful advice and information for artists wanting to know more about how to prepare for a creative brief or contest.

She left us with a few points that summarize her advice on how to answer a creative brief:

1. Try to limit your research time and look in other places than online.

2. Ask the client lots of questions – don’t be afraid! They are usually so nice and helpful! 

3. Don’t send your work until you are 100% happy with it – do your best work each time! 

4. Social media – instagram, pinterest, blog…..clients will find you!

Flora shared with us a little bit about her creative process as well…
