I’m a touch bit tired today, as it was quite a productive week/month as I diligently roll out new plans for my design business, which include expanding my services to include both consulting and web design. I’ve acquired a new Client, a Fine Beer and Spirits Importer located in Texas. Starting out as a consultant to develop solutions for refreshing the brands in their portfolio to make them more marketable in the U.S. It’s a nice change of pace! I’m used to handling all aspects of design from start to finish and it feels very good to be hired as an expert; to constructively analyze other people’s work. Requires a different kind of energy, yet still challenging. What? You wanna pay me for my brain? Sign. me. up.
Part of the plans for first quarter is to get up my official portfolio website, but Client work comes first. Meanwhile, I already have two Client websites in development! I haven’t ever talked much about my work here and it’s time I do since it’s a very big part of my life! So now you know more about why I disappeared end of last year! I was focused on strategies to make this year better for business.
Are you excited for the weekend? I sure am! It’s the first one, since the start of 2012, without any major commitments. Maybe I can finally tackle my office area and closet. We need to desperately purge. I also have a couple refashion projects: make a trench sleeveless and take in the legs of a couple of denim pants. What will you be doing? Whatever it is, make it good.
