On this day in 2013 I registered Black Bee Creative as a limited company and providing graphic design and illustration services for lovely businesses and organisations.
The start of my business journey began a while before this, and my professional career in graphic design started nearly 20 years ago, but today marks the day that it all got real for me all on my own.
Considering that more than half of new businesses in the UK don’t survive beyond five years, I’m pretty blooming pleased with myself for making it this far.
Over the five years I have worked with so many wonderful clients, in a vast array of sectors including manufacturing, coaching, healthcare and artisan crafts to name a few. I’m very pleased to say that many of them have gone on to become returning clients and friends.
It’s onwards and upwards for the next five years. Wish me luck!
