In 2018, I taught myself how to use Adobe Illustrator. I created minimalistic renditions of my favorite album at the time and fell in love with the process and art of creating graphic designs. A month later, I printed 10 stickers of my work and posted a listing for them on Facebook Marketplace. The stickers sold out and I received a lot of encouragement to continue making more designs.
As I began to create new designs, I opened my own online sticker store. I've sold over 1,000 stickers and shipped world wide. To see the designs for sale, please visit: stickers.matthewkwong.com Through building my own business, I've been able to learn skills in marketing and business. I manage my own social media accounts to help advertise and build my following as a designer.
