Job title: Proprietor and Designer at Laura Felicity Design
Duties: My roles within my business are Director, Designer, and Screen Printer. I also manage the admin, finance and marketing side of the business…the list is endless. I’m mainly a one-woman band. But it’s great (for the moment) because I am able to learn all areas of the business before I am able to hand over specific roles, growing my expertise in all aspects of my business.
What I love about work: I love being able to design patterns and products that people can have in their home, which are under my own brand name. To bring a smile to someone’s face, and help them escape from every day stresses.
It’s one of the best feelings to receive a photo, or go round to someone’s home, and see how they’ve involved my designs and products.
What I find difficult is: Time. There is never enough hours in the day. With the different roles I play within the business, it’s difficult to make sure every project/task/deadline is met per week, in order to enable the business to keep moving forward.
My working life would be easier if… I was able to have a small team of people who could help with the particular sides of the business. This is something that is in my business plan, and be will growing over time. As of this year I have already been able to hire a PR freelancer, to help Laura Felicity Design with all press related subjects.
Fantasy job / If I wasn’t doing this, I’d be… I’m pretty sure I would have trained to become an Interior Designer, because I of my love for interiors. I love being surround by beautiful design, pattern, and colour; I could browse through fabric and wallpaper sample books, and collect paint swatches all day.
Being around any form of interesting design, from furniture, to small home accessories I find extremely inspiring. I love wandering around home show events or department stores, thinking of ways I can involve the products for an interior project.
