It's finally here! I've been meaning to share our vendor list for YEARS, but this line on my To Do List kept getting bumped as new projects landed in my inbox. Thankfully, maternity leave has afforded me just enough time to make it happen.
So...what is this Little Black Book?
The Little Black Book is a small collection of some of my favorite creatives and craftspeople in the design industry.
Ok...why are you sharing this?
Many designers—myself included, when I was starting out—like to keep their production partners under wraps. You see, I used to think of my go-to letterpress print shop as a secret weapon; their work made MY work look amazing, and I wanted that leg up on the competition. However, I've learned that the best thing you can do for your beloved vendors is SHARE them. After all, the last thing you want is your trusty printer to go out of business!
Furthermore, since Akula Kreative is not currently accepting work, I needed a set list of trusted business referrals to pass on to current (and potential) clients. I hate responding to inquiries with, "Sorry, can't help! Good luck!" so I've assembled a group of graphic designers, web designers, calligraphers, printers, CPAs, brand photographers, and more...just for you!
I do plan on adding more vendors in the future, but this initial group is VERY talented and I encourage you to reach out to them if you need quality work done this summer. If you can wait until late fall, by all means, please send me an email...otherwise, I know you're in good hands.
