Hi there, I am a Marin County based visual designer (carinisf.com) with over 7 years experience helping clients and organizations with branding and creative materials for both print and web design – clients include Oracle, AT&T, and Old Navy, to name a few. Below I would like to explain the reason for this letter.
To make a long story short, for the past few months, my personal and professional interests have been gradually shifting to a new, and exciting, direction.
Living a healthy lifestyle that includes exercises, organics and raw foods has always been paramount to me (mind + body + soul). Most importantly, supporting local businesses that produce fresh goods has a great significance in my life.
Based on that, I have decided it was time to pursue my passion, and launch an all organic, raw honey business. While intensely working on my business plan for these past few months, I've realized that the best way to achieve my goal, and complete my objectives, would be by partnering and/or collaborating with a local beekeeper that would provide me with the honey production. On the other hand, since I am an experienced visual designer, I can foresee that I would be responsible for all aspects of branding, packaging, marketing, as well as to make any future connections with local retailers for distribution.
The reason I am reaching out to this forum its because I would like to kindly ask your help, and/or advice, on how to connect with beekeepers who would be possibly interested, and serious, about building up a possible partnership. I would be thrilled to hear from you and discuss further!
