The Growing Designer Community in Bangladesh
Selling your artwork online is a business opportunity that has widely spread across the globe. Designers from all over the world are opening online stores on Creative Fabrica’s marketplace to turn their passion into profit.
The Designers of Bangladesh
A growing designer community is located in Bangladesh. With over 47.5 million active internet users in the country, monetizing online is a source of income that has grown exponentially.
An aid in this industry is Bangladeshi designer Riduwan Molla, seller and partner of Creative Fabrica, who has since the beginning of 2021 been operating as the Community Manager in the Facebook group Creative Fabrica Bangladesh, a center of support for the growing designer community.
‘I have always been passionate about helping other people and to grow the community. Creative Fabrica has given me this opportunity.’
Making a full-time living from being a designer
Riduwan has himself been a long time seller on Creative Fabrica, and have seen the opportunities in selling digital designs online:
‘In our design community, people are more comfortable providing service as freelancers, rather than selling templates and designs online. Many of us think that selling digital designs is not very profitable as a service. I just want to change the ideology, and that’s why I am working hard on this topic. We have some great contributors who are making a full-time living by just selling graphic templates. In this position, Creative Fabrica plays a vital role for sure. On Creative Fabrica, there are many opportunities on how designers can earn money for selling their digital artwork.’
Support, advice and a sense of community
In the Facebook group, the community can come together to discuss how to succeed with their store, give each other tips and advice on their designer journey. This is a community where the independent designers can get support from each other.
‘At present, the members of this Facebook community group are 6K+. I also run a YouTube channel where I share my experience with Creative Fabrica, host interviews with successful contributors, and also provide valuable information to boost up the earnings.’
Meetups with leaders of the designer community
The community does not only meet online, they also host offline meetups to help and inspire each other. Earlier this fall, a meetup event was hosted, in which designer professionals were invited to share their knowledge.
‘We are able to share our experiences and get feedback directly from them. And this successful and beautiful program has been organized through the exclusive collaboration of Creative Fabrica. I have more plans to take our community forward in the future.’
