I’ve always been anti-launch. I’ve seen it so many times – new entrepreneurs desperate to get it “right” to the point that it takes them months, some over a year just to finally launch their website, launch their product or service, and actually put themselves out there. No. Stop doing this to yourself. Website launches are ridiculous.
A client fired me recently. I’ve had clients sever contracts for any number of reasons… But fired? I’ve been a graphic designer for 10 years… I’ve never been fired before. I honestly didn’t even know how to process the concept of it. What was I supposed to do now? What did me getting fired from this job actually mean for me as a business owner?
How annoying is it when you share a page from your website, and the page title is just all wrong? – Worse, when you can’t figure out where to change the information so that it displays correctly!? I’m going to show you how you can control the information being displayed for custom post types like your Portfolio and single-Portfolio pages using the Yoast SEO Plugin for WordPress.
Any graphic designer will tell you that designing for yourself is sometimes a greater challenge than designing for clients. I have to say that nothing could be further from the truth for me with my new brand, Pink Hexagon. I feel like from the moment I put mouse to digital canvas, it all just flowed out of me and somehow became this cohesive brand that I am so excited to share with you today.
As a designer and blogger, control over my branding is very important to me (as it should be to you!). That’s why I put forth the extra effort to create an aesthetic for my Pinterest account which mimics my branding: the same colors, fonts, and general style. One way I do this is through the use of the Pinterest Board Covers, which I am going to show you how to make for yourself.
