Ask An Expert Series Part 2: Ask a Web Developer

One strange misconception I often run up against is the idea that my work as a designer comes from this ethereal world of creativity and magic… as though problem solving, business acumen, and skill have nothing to do with it. Similarly, Web Developers – at least the ones I work with – need to tap into larger goals and strategy. I recently sat down with the very clever and thoughtful...

Ask An Expert Series Part 1: Ask a Copywriter

I recently sat down with Copywriter extraordinaire, Rachel Foster. “Extraordinaire,” you may ask? With 14.6K Twitter followers, I think she’s earned a few such sassy adjectives!

Her work at Fresh Perspective has established Rachel...

This is Part 3 of a 5-part series on Rebranding. If you want to catch up on the previous installments before you continue reading, here’s Part 1 and Part 2. Yesterday’s post revealed how very, very into lists and research I am (very).
