5 Questions with Spunkii Kidz


 

 

 

 

1.  What is the story behind your business name:

Unfortunately there is no amazing story behind my business name. I love things that are unique & different. That is exactly what I wanted my business name to be. It’s a bit more strategic in the spelling so it can easily be searched online plus I wanted something fun that can relate to my clientele. 

 

With my range being handmade & natural, I was looking for that in my logo also. My original logo was fun & childish. Last year I decided to facelift the business as it had changed direction. The logo to me was something that was free, calming & still had an innocence. This is where the water colour background come into play & the fun script text.

 

 

2. What was your inspiration to start your own business:

 

I had my first child in 2011 therefore I was off work & needing something to gain my independence and sanity. I suffered from post natal depression after the birth which made it easier to take the step of being a mummy business. Along with my life, the direction of the business has changed a fair bit but today my concept behind the whole business is handmade. Whether it be ethically sourced, fairtrade or handmade by myself right here in Melbourne, everything I offer is exactly that.

In a world of manufacturing & import/export, I love that I offer unique quality products made the right way. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. What does your workspace look like:

 

Hahaha, it is completely hectic. I have cube shelves in my lounge with storage boxes for headpieces, blocks & materials. The carport is full of tools & timbers for the bed frames & my desk is a mess. But it works !!! 

 

 

4. Best thing about your job:

 

I also work part time as well as the owner/maker of Spunkii Kidz. This is not only a business, it’s an outlet for me to be creative around my boys. Being a single mum a lot of people don’t realize, my customers are the reason my children do swimming lessons and play sports. 

We always hear support small, shop handmade but I don’t think a lot of people actual understand what this means. 

 

 

 

5. Best advice you could give other creatives who would like to start their own business:

 

Go for it!! I have met some amazing makers & a fantastic support network through markets & expos.  We are all in it to make it, no reason why can’t we support and lift each other instead of breaking each other down.
