In this episode, I’m sitting down with Megan Thompson from Spark Interiors to talk all about her journey to becoming a commercial designer.

She’s sharing what her path to success has looked like and some of the things that helped the most along the way. From graduating during a recession to hustling as a new designer to hiring her own team, she’s covering it all, and boy does she have some wisdom for you.

Even if commercial design isn’t your area of expertise, there’s a lot to be learned from Megan’s story, so you’re not going to want to miss this

Topics We Cover in This Episode:

  • The path to becoming a designer 
  • Learning on the job how to run a business
  • How boundaries affect your business
  • Adapting during the pandemic 
  • What goes into commercial design 
  • Learning to charge your worth 
  • Hiring help to take things off your plate
