Meeting my fellow freelance creatives is not an impossible thing because we revolve in the same world and we share the same struggles.
However, I am amazed of how our stories are so different from each other — from how we started our journey up to the way we run our businesses or pursue it as a full-time or part-time work.
And one of those people I met along this journey is Abby Giducos of Happy Poppy. Having that dream of seeing her artworks on several items she started selling original watercolor paintings, digital designs and tote bags at the BGC Art Mart. And now, her works are on notebooks, stickers and notepads as well.
She started Happy Poppy when she was still in college which eventually became her baby. Just like any other business, there are ups and downs and she has gone through such. “I used to have a partner pero we parted ways after a year kasi, kasi di na masyado nagwowork yung partnership, same kasi kami ng strengths and weaknesses so di kami nagcompliment with each other. And super busy na rin.” But it didn’t stop her from creating bigger things for Happy Poppy. When asked how she sees her brand after two years, she bravely said “I still see myself as Happy Poppy. I envision for it to have a physical store wherein I can offer more products such as planners, journals and I want it to have many branches.”
When asked what is her advice for the millenials who want to pursue a career in creatives, these are her words:
Thank you Abby for that short and awesome conversation.
