TM: What’s the idea behind Awaken Design Company?
AR: I would probably have to say the “Beauty At Its Best” design that I released for Awaken Clothing. Although, I do have a lot of new concepts that I’m working on that I feel are going to take the top spot for me!
AR: Just don’t rush into it really quickly, and do it because you love it, NOT because it’s, for whatever reason, become “the cool thing to do”. When you have got into it, and are posting your designs out to the public, have super thick skin. You’re going to get a lot of critiques on your work, and a lot of them you are probably not going to like at first. You will not excel if you don’t identify the areas that need worked on, and strengthen them. Also, my last tip is stay professional about everything. I’ve seen countless people ruining their careers in designing by simply being jerks.
