First time at Chelsea Flower Show!
What a highlight. Visiting the Chelsea Flower Show and seeing my designs showcased with the Chelsea Pensioners!
Having visited in January this year, on the off chance they were interested in my work, to four months later and seeing them standing proud with it on display - was a very surreal feeling.
Another ‘meant to be moment’ I reckon.
How it Happened:
A phone call to the gift shop, did a quick 30sec pitch and somehow secured a meeting date!
I’m always so appreciative when people give me a chance. Having not been referred by ‘word of mouth' or sent by a design agency. With no qualification or ‘piece of paper’ I feel I have no credibility. So when I get given a chance on just my portfolio it is a massive boost of confidence.
Create a bright design that highlights what the Chelsea Pensioners are, and the ethos behind the charity.
Knowing very little myself, the opportunity to speak to a resident who showed me round the site was such a valuable resource for creating the design.
I am so pleased to be working with the Chelsea Pensioners further and creating a new product range for their shop.
