NAME: Brittiany Rutkowski
Digital Artist with a background in fashion.
I have always loved combining the two if possible.
1. HOW HAVE YOU CONTRIBUTED TO LePhre$h?
I have created some of the recent graphic/logo work, as well as some unreleased designs coming in the near future. I also like to think I provide good feedback and input when needed.
2. WHAT DRIVES YOUR PASSION FOR WHAT YOU DO?
The never ending need to create! It's this thing us creatives have inside of us that doesn't ever get turned off. You just either fuel it or let it fester until you can’t ignore it anymore.
3. WHEN DID YOU START?
I have really been drawing and such since I was little. Making homemade birthday cards for family members and just drawing up friends favorite cartoons at the time. So the art aspect has always been there, it's just evolved over time between transitioning to digital work and the inspiration behind what I come up with.
4. HOW HAS YOUR PRACTICE CHANGED OVER TIME?
Each new piece I work on (whether for myself or a client) serves as practice these days. With having two small babies, my free time to just sit around and practice sketching or even learning a new technique is a small gap. So when new opportunities come along, I’m always leaving them with some sort of new skill set, knowledge or technique. E
5. WHAT WORK DO YOU MOST ENJOY DOING AND WHY?
Conceptualizing a drop. Whether it's one tee or a little bit of everything. From the mock ups, to the color choices, to getting the physical product, creating content and the photoshoot. The whole entire process is gratifying once you see everything together. And when others understand your vision, PLUS support it, that feeling is unmatched.
6. WHAT MEMORABLE RESPONSES HAVE YOU HAD TO YOUR WORK?
Honestly, anytime someone has genuinely liked what I have created and copped it. Those moments right now are most memorable. Because no one is obligated to like what you do or create. People work hard for their $ so to have them spend it on something I have made or designed is an awesome feeling.
7. WHAT IS YOUR DREAM PROJECT?
This is a tough one.
Curating a pop up event would be major, but also I feel that has become so over saturated in way.
So I’m not sure at the moment honestly.
I always like to try and think out the box and offer something unique if possible.
Having some of my tee designs in a local boutique like shop would be awesome.
I really just go with the flow and ideas that come to me, rather than chasing too many. Those unexpected projects be the best.
