Collaborating with great talents is something we love to do. Recently, we’ve proudly come to a collaboration agreement with Jacob, the man behind Art Rebel Studio. He’s coming all the way from Houston Texas to further expand his business in Malta. Jacob is an exceptional graphic designer with huge experience in the industry. Continue reading below for a brief introductory interview we’ve done with him recently.
Hi Jacob. Can you let us know a bit more about yourself?
Definitely. My name is Jacob and I’m originally from Houston Texas, in the USA. I’m a financial advisor by trade, but with a huge passion for arts and design. I started designing as a hobby but when I saw that there was a demand for my work, I said – Why not turn it into a business?
When was the first time you found out about your passion for art?
I started drawing from a very young age, all going back to my childhood. I love art a lot and I can never get bored trying to draw something amusing or creative. This happens mostly when I am alone – I take it as part of my schedule at least once in a while. I just keep doing it, till I come up with something great!
Amazing! And how did you come by to start your business?
To be honest, I started it as a business to impress the women I love. Right from the first day I met her, I knew there was something unique and amazing about her. Gratefully, we get along so well and we almost share the same things in common. I want to use my designs to express my creativity and to make her proud of my success. Nowadays, I create customized designs for clients to go on hoodies and T-shirts from scratch.
Also, my parents have been teaching me since childhood how to have an entrepreneurial mindset. My curiosity and ambition to reach the highest results did the rest.
What and/or who is your biggest motivation for you?
My biggest motivation was believing in myself. It has been a part of me, no matter what I’m doing, how I’m doing it, where I am getting it from, whatever way it is, I have always said to myself “YOU CAN”.
Where do you see yourself and your business in a few years’ time?
In the next five years, I see myself archiving all I have ever wished for – getting married to the women of my dreams, establishing businesses around the world, and finally living my dream life.
How are you printing/delivering your end product?
I already have an established business back in the USA, recently moved to Malta, and joined a venture with Floordita Services. This was a great opportunity for me as the team of Floodita takes care of all the activities and makes my entrepreneurial journey smooth. I create the designs, they take care of all the social media advertisements, sales, printing, and delivery. Also, freeing up my time gives me the possibility to create even more customized designs for my clients.
