Each designer is like a piece of a jigsaw puzzle.
Their own experience and uniqueness make the design world somewhat more complete and colorful.
Today the story of a keen designer from Indonesia will be unfolded.
Let’s dive in!
Hi, could you tell us a little about yourself?
I am a graphic designer from Indonesia. Recently I’ve joined MakiPlace with the online shop for designed stuff called Ogit.
What are you selling? Why and how did you make it?
I’m selling my designs because I love it. Sometimes, doing something as a hobby and doing something to earn money are two different stories. I feel so thankful that what I love to do can help me earn some livings.
How do you get new ideas for product development?
It’s not so hard to get a new idea for my products. Great ideas come from everywhere. What matters is how you observe everything. There are many beautiful things around that can be incorporated into my designs. It turns out that design is not so far from normal life. So sometimes, just go out and look around, you may have a bundle of ideas for your products.
Any tips for designers and developers on selling their stuff?
“Just do it” seems to be a rule of thumb. I can’t agree more with it. Only by rolling up your sleeves, starting to create something can you find out what you’re good at and what you’re not, what customers need and what they don’t. Gradually you will learn how to create good stuff for customers and thus keep them coming back.
Which feature would you like to see on MakiPlace?
I would like to have more bundles. It appears to be a good way that benefits both my customers and me. My customers can get a selection of designs at affordable prices while my revenue can be improved considerably.
What are your favorite resources for design and development?
I’m gonna say it’s the community. It feels like having a group of people who always stay shoulder to shoulder with you. The community gives me a lot. I’ve been kept updated with new trends, got advice and support, and had access to unlimited professional resources. I truly appreciate what I’ve found there.
Well, it seems that the time for a visit has come. Hope that after the story of Ogit’s owner, you won’t refuse to spend some minutes on his online shop on MakiPlace.
