Lauren Hom visits The Reflex Blue Show (remotely, via Detroit, Michigan) to discuss how she got into lettering. This has led to murals, starting her own online classes, and working for some rather well-known brands. We also discuss her current plans to go to culinary school in a couple of years, and making changes in your career in general. Thanks again to soon-to-be-graduating designer Hanna Zimmermann for co-hosting from Lincoln, Nebraska. We end the show, well, we sort-of recorded an entire show after the show, with Lauren giving Hanna advice for any graduating design student. Enjoy. The post Lauren Hom: The Reflex Blue Show #213 appeared first on 36 Point.
It always seems that art and marketing are on opposite ends of a spectrum but it is possible to blend them. Make your work about things that you’ve experienced, that are relatable to other people and that make you laugh.If you have a great idea that you can’t wait to get started with, ask yourself how you can create a series from this one idea? How can an idea that would result in one post, become twenty posts. Create larger series that help you to batch content and keep sharing with your audience.Check in with yourself before accepting a client's offer. Lauren has a set of 10 questions that she asks herself before starting a project to make sure it fits in with her goals and values. You will attract the kind of work that you share, make sure you are putting out work you feel good about.Do you need to delegate more? Consider how hiring someone on a freelance basis could help you. The stepping stones to hiring can be small. Brainstorm your pain points to figure out how hiring someone can work best for you.Everyone has a skill they can teach. Teach what you wish you had known 2-3 years ago. There will always be someone who is more of a beginner than you are and who wants to know what you wish you had known when you started out.Just because you are a lettering artist doesn’t mean you have to incorporate lettering into everything that you do. Consider if lettering brings you closer to achieving your goals.

EP 06: Turning Passion Projects into a Career with Lauren Hom
Rule Breaker by Rebelle
There’s no shortage of advice out there for creatives who want to make money from their creativity. There are productivity hacks to marketing tricks to do’s and don’ts of being a freelancer. It’s a challenge to NOT get overwhelmed, sifting through all the advice that ”experts” share on how to be a successful creator. But what I’ve noticed is that rarely does this advice have anything to do with their actual creativity! Today’s guest is quite the opposite. She’s someone who has really walked the walk—from doing creative projects for free to building her portfolio to getting press for her work—and she now helps other creatives turn their passion into profit by teaching the ways she’s done just that. Lauren Hom is an award-winning designer, lettering artist, and educator who teaches artists how to grow their businesses and their confidence to keep pursuing their passion. Lauren herself continues to stretch herself to create projects that challenge her creatively vs. always chasing the dollars. And wouldn’t you know, some of her MOST lucrative projects as an artist have come from work she did for free for herself. Listen to the full episode to hear: Why it’s important to pursue both paid and unpaid projects to grow your experience and your brand How one project that didn’t get any press led to Lauren landing a $15,000 paid gig three years later The story behind Lauren’s program, Passion To Paid, and how she’s generated almost $1 million dollars with it What influenced Lauren to trade in her nomadic lifestyle and create a homebase Learn more about Lauren Hom: homsweethom.com Follow Lauren on Instagram Rebelle Member Spotlight – Angie Trueblood angietrueblood.com Follow Angie on Instagram: @angie_trueblood Learn more about Shannon Siriano Greenwood: Rebelle Community Rebelle Con Follow Rebelle Con on Facebook Follow Rebelle Con on Instagram Rebelle Shout Out: Rebecca Rubin and @thecontentqueen on Instagram Stix and @getstix on Instagram

Lettering artist Lauren Hom was a super shy and studious child. Her crafty mother would make snacks with her initials cut out of cheese slices. In her teenage years, her first love led to slipping grades and the realization that her creativity, not science, would be her path to college. She sold her parents on going to art school with the promise of learning the advertising business. After a brief stint at an ad agency, she started freelancing with her art, and now has made an art out of freelancing.

She's a hustler, she’s transparent, she’s humble, and her illustration and lettering business is on track to make half a million dollars this year.
