Five Questions with Amanda Weedmark

This episode’s guest is Amanda Weedmark, a designer and illustrator who sells nature-inspired stickers, pins, patches and paper goods. Amanda’s work is heavily influenced by the simple, funky styles of the 1960s & 70s, and her designs can be found in over 90+ brick and mortar shops across North America.

Topics discussed in the interview include:

  1. Why design and illustration — what prompted you to choose this field?
  2. As a creative, what did your journey look like from HS, to college, to the professional world?
  3. How did you get into over 90 retail stores across North America?
  4. So obviously, you’re an artist AND a business owner. How do these two different facets of you co-exist — and how does one affect the other?
  5. What is the biggest challenge you have faced (either professionally, personally) and how did you handle it?

One of the happy surprises that came out of the interview was a discussion about trauma, healing and self care — which is an incredibly important topic for business owners that doesn’t get enough attention.

I hope you enjoy this week’s edition of Five Questions With.
