Behind the Design - Bailey Doesn't Bark

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was full of college football, wedding planning, gardening, and visits with family and friends. We're starting the week off with Behind the Design. This week's designer is the very talented Re Jin of Bailey Doesn't Bark.

Where does your inspiration come from?
My dreams, my life, people I meet and a lot of times the surface where I plan on applying my artwork. I'm also inspired by Harry Clarke and Kay Nielsen...

Do you have a spot you like to go that helps you feel creative?
In my dreams. I always wish for an amazing dream before I go to sleep.

Where do you do most of your work?
My studio. I love it so much...

Your favorite thing to make?
The first sample of a new design.

What is your all time favorite design from past or current collections?
(This is like asking which one is your favorite child. Impossible to choose...!)
However, I can say that I am very fond of the
Postcup design.

You couldn't run your business without ________?
My husband!

What advice do you wish someone had given you when you first started your business?
Don't deal with rude, difficult people who don't give you the time of the day because you are a small/starting business. It doesn't matter how good they are. Move on, you'll always find the right people to work with.

Coffee or tea?
Coffee in the morning, tea in the afternoon.

Favorite magazine/blog/daily read?
Swiss Miss

If you could follow one person around for the day, who would it be?
President Obama.

Do you have any hobbies or creative outlets other than your work?

Thank you Re Jin for participating in this week's Behind the Design.
