Throughout the years I still like to find time for local stalls particularly those organised by The Fairy Tale Fair. The Fairy Tale Fair was the first fair I ever took part in and it came about by myself and the organiser ( who is magical!) connecting on twitter and I do my best to be at them all now. I find them the perfect way of getting direct feedback from customers and often get new ideas for future projects from conversations all alongside the many other creatives from Brighton and beyond who take part.
My advice to any creatives out there starting up is to find a fair you can take part in and really chat with the customers about what they do/don’t like…it might be hard to hear sometimes but thick skin is needed whenever you are doing anything creative and sometimes it can really help you work out what isn’t working and focus on what is…this gives you a path to follow which is always helpful.
