Taking the plunge

So yes. Here it goes! I recently, and after much thought and hesitation, decided to start a new adventure: working on my own, from my design studio. A risk? Well it’s one that’s definitely worth trying. Since I can’t (yet) show you photos from the studio (or room more precisely), I’ll share with you my basic business card! πŸ™‚ (Note that it’s my 1st personal business card ever. As they say in French: “Les cordonniers sont toujours les plus mal chaussΓ©s”).

And now, enough talking for a Monday morning! Enjoy this song, and see you soon with more updates!

    Congrats Maya, and might I suggest you add “designing business cards” to your porfolio? How cool would it be to have a Maya Zankoul designer card!

    Wow. Great news. I, too, took the plunge and quit my job and am quitting design altogether, but that’s another matter and I will tell you all about it he next time we bump into one another.

    El7aaslo, yeah, it was really about time you started your own thing. I cannot wait to start seeing your work – well, more of it. Gorgeous business card btw.

    Congrats.
