Etsy Spotlight Interview #15 with A Grape Design
Many thanks to Karin, the Etsy shop owner of A Grape Design, for participating in an exclusive little interview for us!
How did you come up with your business/shop name…
► Since my name is Anna Grape, and it becomes A Grape if I shorten it, I thought A Grape Design made sense, and also was a bit funny since it kind of sounds like a great design.
Can you share a little background about your logo…
► I designed it myself, and it doesn’t really have a story behind it unfortunately. I just wanted it to look clean and modern.
Please tell us about your shop and the items you sell…
► I sell prints with my illustrations, and sometimes other stuff I just feel like making! In the past I’ve sold necklaces and I also have some clothes with my illustrations on. But the prints are the main thing. My style is often very colorful and fun, with a sense of humor.
Do you have a “top seller” or personal favorite item?
► My collection with different pugs are pretty popular, and also the ones I like best! My favorite one is Rollerpug.
I also love my new collection called Mods, I’m very proud of how they turned out!
Where can we find your work?
Where are you based?
► In Norrtälje, north of Stockholm in Sweden.
Where do you get your inspiration?
► It can come from anything; music, tv-shows, other illustrators, fashion. Mostly just from my head!
You cannot live without…
► My boyfriend, my dog and my computer. And candy.
You’re not a fan of…
We wouldn’t guess that…
► I’m the worst procrastinator ever, I always spend all the time playing computer games or something instead of working,
and always ends up having to do everything last minute.
One day, you hope to…
► Have a steady income from my freelancing and not having to worry about money all the time.
Do you have advice for other Etsy shop owners?
► Always deliver on time, and always be nice to the customers when they have questions!
