While we live in a very digital world, one promotional item that continues to be used throughout most industries is the business card! These small pieces of cardstock remain one of the most practical and tangible ways for people to trade contact information when they meet in person. Business cards still hold a purpose for entrepreneurs, and I base that on the fact that I still have clients that order cards regularly and in the thousands. Such is the case for my client, Texas Specialty Steel, who recently ordered a new set for one of their salespersons. What about you? Do you still use business cards?
A few weeks ago, I shared a sneak peek of an invitation I was designing for the Montessori School of San Antonio’s 2019 Annual Spring Gala. I had so much fun working on this project, and I recently delivered the finished prints to the client, which is why I’m excited to share them with you today! Check out this lovely trifold invitation we created for the event. This year, we also printed and addressed envelopes to match the invite. So, if you’re in the middle of planning a party or fundraiser, consider reaching out to me if you need help designing and printing the invitations!
I run my business a little differently than many in my line of work. I like working collaboratively with my clients… that means YOU are involved in every part of the project—from start to finish. Many designers don’t want the client included in the design process, but I’ve never understood that… I want your input and your insight at every stage to make sure I’m going in the right direction. I want to hear what you like and what you don’t… Why? Because my goal is to design something you’ll love! I’m bringing YOUR ideas to life, and I can’t do it without you. If that sounds like something you’re looking for, reach out to me and let’s work TOGETHER!
When I was little, I used to play make-believe that I ran an office. I’d set up a desk, organize papers and pens, answer imaginary phone calls and pretend to have meetings… Little did I know that a few years later I would run my own real office providing graphic design services to other entrepreneurs like myself. And while I like working on all different types of projects, I really enjoy taking part in the ones that feature women entrepreneurs! One of my clients, Lisa Cabrera, owner of Property Sisters of Texas contacts me regularly to create extra business cards for the newest members who have joined her team. It’s awesome to work with a company that empowers strong, diverse women from different backgrounds!
I recently discovered this tool myself and was really impressed! Picular is a primary color generator that uses Google’s image search. Here’s how it works:
You just enter a search term, and it provides you with color tile options based on the top image results that come up on Google for that term. Each tile comes with the Hex color code and the ability to see which image it’s drawing the color from. Cool, right?
This is a handy tool to get color inspiration for your next design project. You can also use it to analyze which colors are getting linked to specific terms… Try it and tell me what you think!
Do you ever wait until Monday to begin new projects?
Maybe, you’re planning on starting “next month.” Or perhaps you’re waiting until it’s time for resolutions again. We all do it—and we all need a little push once in a while to move us into action. Well, consider this my push… It’s Monday, January and February flew by in a blink, and the New Year is not so new anymore… So tell me, are you finally ready to start working on your logo? Or place that order for new business cards? How about those flyers you been meaning to put together? It’s time… Browse my website to find out how I can help you with all these things!
