Not sure about you? but my job demands for me to stay focused and be creative. Thanks to my headphones and music streaming I can listen to any genre of music while I work, so I did some research on the best music for your brain to maintain a work flow with limited distractions. Check out this playlist I compiled to keep you STEADY WORKING!
Thanks again to anyone who came out last Thursday for the LA Build Mixer event. I had an amazing time connecting with so many motivated and talented people. Thanks again to Michael Gunther and Kristin Mehiel from Collaboration Business Consulting for speaking on so many great points about how NOT to kill your business. Also thanks to Charles Wine Company, Boomtown Brewery and Dedicated Danny's Hot Dogs for helping us raise the bar. Also a BIG shoutout to the LABM team; Amber, Steve, Eric and Eldad for making me look good... always :) #labuildmixer #kessellgraphics #freelancerdrafting #alfitrade #collaborationbusinessconsulting @labuildmixer @labuildmixer network
This was my first trip to the Build Expo in Los Angeles. At first I was a bit surprised by how small it seemed, but once I walked around I realized all these companies are located in Los Angeles, or conduct business here, then it wasn't that small anymore. When you're at the LA Convention Center you have to take in account the size of the room your in. I guess its not the size of the show, its the people in it ;)
The guys at Alfi Trade were kind enough to add me to their team and I was able to promote; not only myself, but the LA Build Mixer on March 14th. I attached a slideshow featuring a few of the booths I thought stood out.
Brainstorming is an important element to ensuring a seamless design process. Discussing the purpose, establishing a common goal, and coming up with a detailed plan, all help to unify the designer with the client’s overall vision. As a graphic designer who specializes in brand identity, the simple act of thoughtful deliberation, jotting down ideas and sketching out concepts offers the best introduction to serving my clients and discovering what they’re looking for.
I find that this part of the process is the most enjoyable, not that I don’t enjoy the entire process; I love what I do. But the act of creative thinking, un-filtered design ideas, and big picture conversation truly gets clients excited about the end result.
