Q: What’s your favourite type of design
A: I love the process of designing a new logo and then being part of its evolution and application as the business grows. There’s nothing better then seeing the logo you helped work on out in the real world. I still get excited when I see clients drive by with their logo on the side of a car or see it on menu at a restaurant.
Q: What do you do to get around a creative block?
A: Take a break. There’s nothing productive about staring at a blank computer screen! I like to take a quick break, move on to another project or better yet, go for a walk. The best ideas usually come to me when I’m not trying to force it.
Q: Got any tips for Small Business Owners?
A: I think it’s really important to just keep moving, and to constantly try new things. I’m also loving some of the amazing apps and online tools that can make your life so much easier. In our studio we love assistant.to for making appointments (without going back and forth) and Xero for accounts.
Q: Why do you love start ups?
A: As a graphic designer, I love that when you work with startups you have a clean slate and there is usually no pre-existing design elements that you need to worry about incorporating. I also love hearing other people stories about why they have decided to go out on their own. I find my clients enthusiasm, excitement and passions for their business really rub off on me and motivate me personally.
