Phoebe Cornog and Roxy Prima are mural artists and ex-podcasters based in San Diego, otherwise known as Pandr Design Co, or as we like to call them, the Drunk on Lettering Girls. They have since retired their boozy podcast to focus on educating artists about getting paid fairly, all things girl-boss, and freelance entrepreneurship. They have also painted murals all over the world and they spoke at Typism in 2017 about all of these things and more.
In their Typism talk, "Clueless to 100K" Phoebe and Roxy share their secrets about how you can make fun and at the same time make money.
They also reveal that social media is great when used proactively. This is where you can attract your clients and show off your work on social media.
They also use their Instagram as a platform to share their views and opinions about the industry which helps establish their authority in the space. Head over to their Instagram and enjoy their venting and life lessons.
The key message from this talk is to enjoy your creative freelance work and always remember that passion can make money. They discuss the pros and cons of freelancing and argue that freelancing is an adventurous pursuit and gives you time to do what you love.
Phoebe and Roxy also have the unusual circumstance of working together as a duo. They talk about how this process evolved and advocate for collaborating with other people as it gives you ideas for your passion and can boost your business. Having someone to bounce ideas and problems off can also help relieve stress.
If you're interested in murals, then there is a lot of valuable information in the talk, but they also dive deep into dealing with clients, pricing your work, having those hard conversations with clients and developing a money plan and business strategy.
