When I left high school at 16 I started doing apprenticeships and worked in sales for Papercutz LTD. My manager who was the owner asked me if I knew any graphic design and if so, would I be able to create some ads. That is where I started being interested in design.
I then went from jobs to jobs which I couldn't settle down in. On the 10th of September 2018 I begged my mum to buy me a new desktop computer with graphics cards and a HD monitor. (I begged her so much.) It was because I want to start a new business and build relationships with people and persue my dream. I had no one to turn to and my mum was the only person I could ask. So, me and my mum put half in, and I started working on the plans for business and I started creating my own website, system, portfolio. On the 5th of October 2018 I had my first customer who found me through Facebook Ads. The order was worth £700 pounds and I was crying to my mum. My mum was super happy as she knew she was getting her money back.
Riva design +prints now has developed and built a relationship with customers. At cheap rates customers can now start focus on developing their business further and worry less about cost for designing and printing to promote. At Riva Design Prints, I have generated prices for customers that are happy to pay. Some graphic companies or freelancers can charge you £100 to £300 pounds for a logo that takes around 2 hours to do. Customers are being ripped of by freelancers designers, and I want to change that. At Riva Design Prints, we charge for a logo £40 in all formats, hi resolution, free amendments or changes. It takes around 30mins to 1 hour. Sometimes more depending on infomation you require. I have done over 100 logos since I started and my customers were very happy how quick it was. I want to expand, I require new equipment to carry on, and space as currently i work in my 1 bed flat. Unfortunately my mom cannot help anymore and I'm not sure where to get help from. The money I raise would go towards new equipment like: pc monitor, drawing pad, photoshop programmes, a new space and a desk, laptop and more.
