It's Always Good To Come Home
Nothing rang truer than this statement, well spoken by none other than a fellow creative.
I started Touched Magazine back in 2001. Before then, I had engulfed myself solely on interior and event design projects. Part of this venture, included a nicely prepared and active blog that allowed me to showcase those projects in greater detail. I wanted it to feel and look like a magazine so a blog felt very limited to what I wanted to do. I did want it to be a community of people, interacting, asking questions, having a place to showcase their work. I embarked on the online magazine journey but it no longer became something I enjoyed doing. Every article for me had to have a similar layout and format as the one prior and that became cumbersome. The editors I worked while talented, weren't very committed and therefore didn't love the mag like I did and I ended up having to hunt people down for them.
Exhausting!! Where's the fun in that?
So I decided to take 2016 off to reflect on what it is I wanted to and if I even wanted to do it all. I closed down TOUCHED MAGAZINE and cleaned up old emails. I let go of something that was no longer fulfilling to me. I came across emails that had never even been opened and realized the amount of questions I received from other creative people, mostly interior designers but also artists, graphic designers, content creators - all looking for advice on how to start a magazine - a design business - where to get stock images.
And then I had my AHA moment! Why not create the EXACT thing these creative were looking for??
So I opened the CREATIVE HUB which is full of creative career articles in hopes to turn it into a space where creative individuals could come for advice on pricing, resources they could use fo their business.
But what about me? And my work? I still hadn't gone home. So I did. And back with it, was what I had created back in 2007, my home, my space for my design work. That's a lot of me included in that sentence but I needed to come back..to bring it all back to where I was at the happiest!!
