QUESTION – What could your business have in common with a small bespoke jewellery design company in Burton-upon-Trent.?
Well – more than likely quite a lot . . .
Jamie Hall Jewellery create unique pieces . . . nothing off the shelf . . . evey single ring, bangle, brooch, necklace . . . is a bespoke creation tailored especially for you . . . (their customer). . .
. . .and still only at high street / off the peg prices.
Jewellery or not . . . isn’t it great when you have something that is completely unique to you . . that no-one else has?
Isn’t it even better that this completely original and individual item contains:
Brand confidence background
We all love a good brand . . . you know that special feeling of brand confidence which wearing those Ugg boots, or toting your new iphone gives you . . .
I think it’s kind of brainwashed into our souls from childhood . . . starting from being teased at school by a “lack” of a brand . . . (in my schooldays it was trainers) . . .
. . . more recently my son got teased about not having the current Xbox console . . . and then ironically again for having the “very latest” Xbox console.
Any well-known brand oozes confidence, has perceived status and people want to be a part of it . . . so what are you going to do to get your new business on the brand confidence path?
For a small business . . . advertising and promoting yourself is a bit of a challenge . . . there are plenty of people out there contacting you with advice on what you should be doing. . .
. . . but if you want to sell yourself well then your business has to look great . . . and if you want to guarantee a professional result then you need to know how to choose a graphic designer who you can trust. . .
The blog is a little late this week because I was waiting to see the outcome of a networking event I went to yesterday . . . . .
. . . where I was recruiting new team members . . . . Continue reading
Every new business nowadays should have a website at some point . . . .
. . .and when you do it needs to represent your business . . .which means having the same name as your new business name . . .
. . . .so when you’re starting out and choosing your new business name it is wise, prudent and sensible to search domain names and consider this very important issue at the same time . . . .
even if you have not got any plans for a website straight away you can register the domain and it will be safe for at least a year . . . . Continue reading
And again – I need to apologise for not blogging last week . . . .
. . . I have been feeling lousy with a kidney infection for the past 10 days and and not able to do anything at all . . . . .
. . . . luckily I had just completed a big project and was in between jobs so it has not had a drastic impact on my workload and I haven’t had to upset any of you lovely customers.
but now I am over the worst and although not 100% at least able to start doing a little bit I can see the light at the end of the tunnel . . . . .
. . . . and that in itself is enough for a bit of party celebration – reason number 1 . . . . .
First I want to apologise for not blogging these past 2 weeks. . . .
Half Term . . . . plus two inset days (teacher training so school closed to kids) . . . . and a busy schedule seems to have taken their toll . . . .
. . . but just about back on track, this morning I want to give a good old-fashioned shout out to my most recent client Dr Paul. . . .
thank you to her for helping Wild Ideas original graphic design to launch another Awesome Brand . . . .
. . . . . and congratulations on opening her “Elegance cosmetic clinic” today – 8th November 2016.
A day in the life of a graphic designer can be really creative and fun . . .and other times it can be very frustrating . . . .
This is an insight into a recent gift voucher design and print project. . .that is now currently winging its way to the client . . .
. . but it wasn’t all plain sailing . . . well not for me anyway . . . but that’s why my clients don’t do it themselves. Continue reading
As with every project that I do, when I have completed it I like to dedicate a blog to share with you all the latest design achievement . . . .
. . . . which is also a great opportunity to be able to promote the services of the people that I have done the design for. . . .
. . . . sometimes it won’t appeal to everybody . . . . but on this particular occasion the lovely memory items that this lady (Miss E) is selling on her great new website could find a place in every single household. . . .
. . . and because of this great new website they are accessible to all of YOU wherever you may be . . . .
Happy Star Wars Day – May the 4th be with you (sorry couldn’t let it pass even though I am not really a fan).
Anyway – to the blog . . . . .
Thanks to the latest Wild Ideas and DBN project I am now proclaiming Wild Ideas officially an Armani designer.
One of the joys of being a freelance is that you never know what’s around the corner and who you may be designing for next. . . .
. . . being in the right place at the right time . . . and meeting that right person . . . .
means I am proud to have been involved with the launch of Armani’s newest venture . . . .
. . . which is how I became an Armani designer. . . .
