26.09.2013 at 5.30 pm
The invited guests will be – by way of exception – exclusively designers who at the same time successfully sell their own products: Bartosz Mucha nad Paweł Jasiewicz. They will talk about the ways to sell their designs on their own. We will learn if this kind of career path and independent marketing of one's own work is a viable alternative to traditional employment in the job.
