Janet Pacey is a designer, a graphic designer, a print designer and just a creative person. This local of Yellowknife has recently moved from her house to her very own office in downtown Yellowknife.
Janet has a wide variety of work, one of the most notable is her stuffed animals called Ptarmi. They were created from a cartoon she created based on the arctic chicken, the ptarmigan. Ptarmi took off from Yellowknife and has been seen around the world. Janet tells me how Ptarmi got its start and where it is going. Possibly another character will be coming to life.
As our conversation continued we get onto the topic of business. Janet wasn’t always a small business owner so she reflects on what it took her to make the switch, as well as offers advice for those who are thinking about starting their own business.
She has a successful stuffed animal, amazing art and a wide variety of clients she loves working with, she also has a wicked sense of humour. Janet Pacey is a smart lady and she shares some good information that we can all use going forward.
Be sure to check out her website and like his page on Facebook.
Don’t forget if you know someone doing something interesting (or another photographer or yourself) send me their info, I want to talk to them!
