Success Story: JossHannah and MariaVecherya

JossHannah is a music teacher from Edinburgh, Scotland. She hired Russian graphic designer Maria Vecherya to design a gorgeous vintage poster for a concert. In this article, we spoke to both about how they made this project a success.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

JossHannah: I’m a music teacher from Edinburgh.

MariaVecherya: I’m a Russian 22 year-old graphic designer who is graduating next year. I’ve been working as a designer for three years and during this period I’ve worked on different kinds of projects – from making websites layouts, to developing packaging concepts and creating icon-sets.

Tell us about the project.

JossHannah: I was running a singer songwriters evening at an Edinburgh pub. I wanted some slick publicity that would be vintage yet eye catching. I gave Maria a really basic (probably unhelpfully so) brief of a vintage poster design with instruments on it, Avett Brothers style.

MariaVecherya: I have made some posters in a similar style to the sort JossHannah wanted. I was free those days and decided that it was a nice opportunity for me.


How did you find working with each other?

JossHannah: Maria was incredibly clever with the brief. I went with her because her response was both professional and quick and I needed a quick turnaround. She was really helpful and understanding of my lack of instruction but pickiness to alter things several times.

MariaVecherya: JossHannah is just an ideal client. She sent over clear details so that I understood what she needed. She also responded very quickly, which naturally made the project convenient for us both. She always stayed in touch with me and provided me with the info I needed.

What do you think of Twine?

JossHannah: A lot of people commented on the great artwork and couldn’t believe I’d organised it through a website!

MariaVecherya: I would say that this experience was a good one for me, and I definitely will continue to work through Twine. Payment, organisation, everything cool.
