I will be exhibiting at Blueprint!
Surprise! I am going to NYC in May to exhibit at the best surface design tradeshow in the country: Blueprint!
I got the absolute best news ever last week: I won the Blueprint Shows Young Designers Competition! That means they are providing me with a booth at the show alongside some really, really amazing artists!
I was fortunate enough to be able to spend a day at the show last year and hang out with the fabulous Ine Beerten from Zesti at her booth. I visited SURTEX as well, and it was definitely a great trip! I knew that if I ever exhibited at a show myself that I would choose Blueprint. The Blueprint shows have a wonderful atmosphere, a boutique look and feel, and it is so relaxed and friendly!
My plan was to eventually apply to exhibit at the show, but I thought it might be a few years until I could work up the confidence to do it! Kind of at the last minute, I decided to enter the Young Designers Competition. I knew I would love to win, but I was sure that there was someone out there whose art would beat mine in the competition. I loved the work I submitted, and I am happy that they liked it, too. I feel so honored to be showing my work alongside so many fabulous artists who are absolutely killing it in the surface design market.
