Launching an online Illustration business through Squarespace; all artwork is my own

Who am I?

Hi! My name is Megan, and I am a third year Illustration student at Middlesex University with a love of tea, thunderstorms, and drawing.

My Business Start-Up and why i need your help!

Opening a business is tough as it is, but opening a business in the art community is on a new level; the costs are high and the competition is fierce, but I am a determined hard-worker! My online shop will consist of a variety of items; prints, and stickers at first, and then eventually notebooks, badges, and t-shirts.

Once I graduate, I would love to work as a freelance illustrator; working for myself producing work that I enjoy making and work that my audience would love too! I have been working on my illustration techniques for years now, and I am so close to achieving my dream of being able to just run my own business in illustration as a full-time job; this is the last step that launches it and I am so excited for the future this business holds.

required budget

Below is a breakdown of the money I would like to raise so that I can get my business off the ground:

£216 -  This amount pays for the online business shop/ website on Squarespace alone for just one year and will lay the original foundations of the business.

£284 of my budget and anything beyond this! - Additional money raised will be spent on prints and merchandise for the website. I have included some images of what will be included in the shop at the end of my campaign page, so please take a look!

Here is an idea of what some of the merchandise will  cost:

  • Prints: £15 for 8 A5's etc
  • Stickers: £5 for the sticker paper (doesn't include printing costs)

Profits from merchandise sold will be reinvested into the business.
