YAY!! I'm super chuffed!! Two days ago (on my birthday) I found out my freelance side hustle business - Krishna Solanki Designs - is a finalist in the Small Business category in the Cambridgeshire Digital Awards 2017.
This week I changed my working hours in my part-time gig. I worked my first Monday, in an office, in over 4 years - It means I get Friday's off but I genuinely felt the Monday morning work struggle!
It took me a while to adjust and switch my brain on and into work mode. Off the back of that, I needed to get my creative juices flowing, and so, what better way than to create something to help motivate me!...A wallpaper for my iMac and my iPhone.
I couldn't keep it to myself as so feel free to download it for yourself too!
As a brand designer, I see it A LOT in facebook groups….“I only need a logo”... “I don’t need a brand”... “Branding is for large organisations”...So many branding myths and misconceptions!
So today I wanted to burst the bubble on 7 branding misconceptions!
Whether you’re a new business owner or a seasoned pro, you should know that a logo is more than just an image. It’s an extension of your brand. Not only does it need to look visually pleasing, be well balanced, and stand out, it, more importantly, needs to speak to your potential clients/customers and have longevity.
Believe it or not, there is a level of creativity and design know-how that goes into creating an iconic logo, not to mention a process so today I wanted to share 5 unmissable tips on designing an evergreen logo.
If you have ever felt overwhelmed as a small business owner then you know where I am coming from when I say ARGHHHH…..
For a few weeks now I’ve felt a bit overwhelmed and it’s left me a little shell shocked if I’m honest. I think I am just about getting over the feeling now so I figured I would share how I how dealt with overwhelm.
It’s important to say, not everyone deals with overwhelm in the same way, so what works for me may not work for others. It’s definitely worth taking a look through and sifting out what doesn't work so you can concentrate on what does work!
