New Year, New Inspirations

INFOGRAMS GET A FACELIFT

It’s been a year since I launched my infograms—mini infographics for instagram—that included weekly business tips or inspirational quotes. This is something that was inspired by a friend at a conference and encouraged by my creative business coach to use for self-promotion aka marketing.

More viewers responded to the quotes than the tips, and frankly, I’m not a business expert so I’m limited to what I can share in that aspect. But inspiration is found everywhere! And this world needs some positive vibes in a bad way. I may be just one person, but if I can make just one other person feel good, then I have accomplished my goal.

So, I’ve decided to just create inspirational infograms and designed a consistent, simplified style similar to how I created my website and promotional materials. Beautiful imagery and beautiful words can make the world a happier place, one infogram at a time. Here are the first few I’ve created for the new year [some have not been released yet]:

The Creative Process

A GUIDE TO WORKING WITH A GRAPHIC DESIGNER

You’re ready to launch your new business, product or service, but need to bring in a professional graphic designer to help establish the brand and design all the elements. 1) Where do you begin? 2) What’s it like to work with a graphic designer? 3) How do they go about their process of designing the end result?

Answer to question  1: Begin with finding an experienced, established designer that takes their creative business seriously. You can start here, of course, with dezinegirl creative studio. I’ve been creating lifestyle brand designs for over 20 years. But if my style doesn’t float your boat, you can go to trusted sites like AIGA or Behance and browse through portfolios.

Answers to questions 2 and 3: I’ve developed this infographic just for this purpose. Most of my potential clients ask me how I work, what’s the process, how long does it take, etc. This infographic pretty much sums up my answers in a visual, brief guide. This should help eliminate the guessing game when you are ready to launch!

Feel free to share it, pin it, download it, or even post it on your website.
