Hi! I’m Charlene C Lam.

I help creatives show and sell their work.

Dear Creative Person,

Can I ask you my favourite question?

HOW do you show and sell your work?

Because here’s the thing: Designing and making beautiful things isn’t enough.

If you want to make a creative living, you have to show your beautiful work
… to the right people
… at the right time
… in the right way

I really believe that selling your work can be as simple as that!

And I believe in you and what you do, creative person.

Let’s go add more beauty to this world, together!

I work with designers, makers and brands in NYC and London a couple of ways:

CURATING POP-UP SHOPS: Over the last 7 years, I’ve curated and organised dozens of pop-up shops in London under the names Creative Clerkenwell and The Creative Edit. My pop-ups usually feature independent designers and makers, taking part in events like Clerkenwell Design Week and the London Design Festival.

CREATIVE BUSINESS COACHING AND MENTORING: 1:1 coaching and mentoring and small group workshops for organizations like Craft Central. My wide range of experience gives me an unusually multi-disciplinary perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing independent designers, makers and brands.

Coming soon: Show + Sell with Charlene group mentoring program

WRITING AND SPEAKING: I write and speak about design and creative business. Creative Clerkenwell has been a media partner for shows and events like Clerkenwell Design Week and designjunction. I’ve spoken about entrepreneurship, social media for creatives, experiential retail, pop-up shops and design thinking at events like Creative Links at the Goldsmiths’ Centre, New Designers and the IDEO London Make-a-thon.
