More and more designer makers are selling their work online – via their own website, with specialist online boutiques and shops, or with one of the popular online market places like Etsy, Folksy or others.

The Design Trust asked this question to 11 creatives, online selling experts, various online market places, an art expert, and various online shops and boutiques. A wide variety – from individual creatives to some of the largest online market places in the world. Although some of the advice obviously overlaps it is great to see their advice from their own perspective.
