This month we get to introduce you to Andrea Archambault who is the owner and graphic designer behind Arch. Andrea is a Michigan-west-coaster; growing up in the Muskegon area, attending college at Ferris State University, and now residing in Holland/Zeeland area. She took her first graphic design class in high school, fell in love, and has been working in the field personally and professionally ever since.
Initially, friends and family suggested that she sell her art and services online, but Andrea didn’t actually take the plunge until she created a Pregnancy Countdown Chain to announce her own pregnancy to her parents. It was a hit and it led her to opening her very own shop on Etsy! The name of her business has been a work in progress throughout the years. Her online presence was initially in blog form, and over the years she’s changed the name a few times, ultimately resulting in the short and sweet “Arch” that we know today (based on her own last name).
Andrea is a full-time graphic designer by day, but says, “my shop gives me the kind of freedom I don’t necessarily have in the corporate world or even when working with many of my freelance clients.” She absolutely loves her side-job! One of her favorite scenarios is when she gets a custom request and the client gives her total freedom to create something unique for them. You can find Arch in our store, or online by clicking the link below. BONUS: Andrea is offering you a discount this month only when you order from her website.
