Q: Anna, you’re one of the newest members of the Royal Talens team. Can you explain some of the things you do in your role as Marketing Project Manager?
Q: What is your favorite part of working at Royal Talens?
I have two favorite parts- the first is meeting and getting to know awesome artists around the country! The second is being able to play with all of our products in the sample room. Okay- maybe three favorite parts… I also really like learning about our products and understanding what they’re made of and how they work with other materials.
Q: You’re an artist – Tell us a bit about what you like to create.
I like to make colorful messes. I’m obsessed with color and working fast to get out a particular mood. I really like to work on bigger surfaces and plywood especially. The mediums I use most are acrylics, oil pastels, and… nail polish!
Q: If you had to select one medium to stay with as an artist, what would it be?
At this point in time, I would have to say that I would choose acrylics. I find that they are very agreeable with my style and degree of patience!
Q: You are an entrepreneur as well, having co-founded a start-up called PixelFunder, can you tell us a little about that?
Yes! PixelFunder is a crowdfunding solution for indie game developers. I started the company with my boyfriend a little over a year ago. We are both big gamers and the indie gaming scene is full of awesome people and lots of bright ideas- we found that the developers needed help with marketing and avenues of funding so that they could focus on creating their games- which is what PixelFunder is all about- a non-equity based crowdfunding solution with bespoke marketing services.
