Introducing the Resources Page (Plus a Peek at my Favorite Branding Designers)
Today, we’re talking all things resources! It’s recently come to my attention that we’re all in the same boat here—somewhat guessing as we make decisions for our business and future of our business while writing down half sentences of ideas and trying to dissect them later.
Some of my half sentences happen to be all of the resources that I use to keep my brain from exploding on a hard day. I realized that not only is it incredibly hard to read, but it’s also really tiring to talk about the same things to different clients, all the time. So, I created a resources page on my site for all of us to use!
This is literally my mecca of information, and a page I regularly go to as well. It has branding referrals, stock photos (remember my excitement for these!?), my favorite printing sources, my favorite project management tools, social media tools and productivity apps. It’s everything a new entrepreneur could dream of, right at your fingertips! So take a peak, let me know what you think!
Speaking of resources, if you didn’t receive the email last week (or, didn’t notice), a few things have changed around here! As a designer, I have a special place in my heart for branding and it was time my personal site got a little upgrade. A few things have changed, thanks to Jenny at The Lum Collective and I wanted to share a few other branding pros I work with or love on regularly (you may too if we work together in the future!).
