I know you probably got those stock photos because you liked how the feel and vibe were screaming at ya’. Well, that’s cool and all but one thing I highly suggest is ALWAYS to take your brand into consideration. This is all about branding stock photos to fit your brand’s vibe. Or better yet: get custom stock created just for your brand.⠀ ⠀ Thats exactly what happens here at Penguin Designing with my signature 3 Keys process where the last key we focus on is creating imagery for your content needs 🙌🏼 Having a brand photographer and designer on your side has it’s big perks 😉
This mug sits on shelf and I just giggle every time I pass by it 😂 I bet more than one will feel targeted, and boy is it admirable of those who can turn to kid-safe curses! I need to start practicing my PG-13 versions just in case 😂 There’s a place and time, my nurturer personality would never allow for mad words to come out with just anyone, but I have certain words that just won’t shake off, like when I’m making a list in my mind and think “is this all the ish? I need to get my ish together before I forget something” 😂 oops... Hence this mug is extra funny to me.
What is that one thing you can’t Monday without? (Yes I just used Monday as a verb 😂 )⠀ ⠀ For me, my Asana checkup. The amazing Liz from @luxandvitadsn has hooked me up on implementing amazing systems to keep 👏🏼 me 👏🏼 organized. Which is not my forte. I am that stereotype of an artist where my right side is beaming while my organization skills are a bit... trainable 🙈.
Sunday's are for rest, but this gal is on a work-rest Sunday mode after a sick week, aka, work form bed. Boom. And you thought this entrepreneurial life was glamorous 😂! My lungs feel so much better today after yesterday's steam session, I'm determined to power through today! 💪🏼. I have the best clients and besties giving me all their support and tips, which by the way... I think I'm turning into an oily lady 😳... So if you have any favorite tips for EOs, I'm all ears! Oh, happy St Patty's day! Hope you're wearing some green and you get to enjoy some yummy treats 💜 • • • • • #branding #marketing #socialmedia #graphicdesign #brandidentity #digitalmarketing #business #graphicdesigner #socialmediamarketing #webdesign #marketingtips #social #smallbiz #marketingdigital #contentmarketing #smallbusiness #entrepreneur #essentialoils #EOnewbie #gettinghealthy #workfrombed
There's a handy dandy PDF I created in a zap with @vanessaryan.co templates (because who has time for that?✌🏼) that goes over the main things of having a membership with your @showit website.🙌🏼 I am planning a blog post on it and I'll definitely include that PDF for ya! Now tell me all the burning questions you have on finally adding a membership to your #Showit website and I'll get them answered on that blog post 👇🏼
I get excited when I send mockups to clients, like when the sweet Annmarie of @cityhousecollective and I were going over these bottles. But you know what simply lights me up? Seeing those logos and marks come to life and grow into the business they were strategized for. THAT is what my designer dreams are made of. 💜✨What part of your job excites you the most?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #brandingdesign #graphicdesignerforcreatives #photostyling #stockphoto #california #sandiego #brandexperience #showiteer #creativebiz #whitespacewinter

Sounds like a good Monday to me!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What do you have planned for today?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .#brandingidentity #brandstrategy #brandstylist #branddesigner #showiteer #showitdesigner #showitwebsite #visualmarketing #brandstrategist #infp #youbelong #creativecommunity #bosslifestyle #bossladylife #penguindesigning #brandingforcreatives
It's Sunday, let's keep simple, shall we? If you go to your current website and you only look at your homepage can you answer these simple questions?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • What do you do?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • Where are you located?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ • Who do you serve?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Most people take those things for granted because when you are too close to your brand you forget to be CLEAR. So if you are are not quite sure one of those 3 is super clear on your homepage this is your sign to go get that straightened up! 💜⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #lifeofanartist #calledtobecreative #artforthehome #thenativecreative #communityovercompetition #ladyboss #girlbosses #beyourownboss #mycreativebiz #bossbabe #creativehappylife #dontquityourdaydream #femaleentrepreneur #womenhelpingwomen #beingboss #creativebusiness #createcultivate #designisinthedetails #designinspiration #colorhunters #showit #showitdesigner #brandingdesigner #creativebrabing #brandingforcreatives #webdesigner
Systems is never a sexy talk for my creative mind. I used to get SO frustrated. As you know I'm a photographer as well as a designer, so I tried to jump into the Client Relationship Manager wagon years ago, and what did I find? Corporate stuff or photographer stuff. So photographer stuff seemed more appropriate. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I tried Tave and Sprout studio, don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with them, but they are not suited to fit all businesses, it's like you have to shape your business to fit them. Now enter the unicorn: Dubsado 🦄@mydubsado⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is like the hidden treasure: It is flexible, so I can use it on both of my businesses, and create workflows that fit different areas of my business, even different offerings within the same business. After 2 years, I am still darn happy I switched to Dubsado! They are celebrating 3 years now (and have a sale going on, and yes, you can use code penguin to get 20% off your first month or year!) and I can only expect they'll keep growing and gracing us with more features (to their already robust line of features!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Check it out and let me know if you have any questions! I am no Dubsado expert, but maybe I can help you! (or point you in the direction of a true Dubsado expert like @luxandvitadsn)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ . #lifeofanartist #calledtobecreative #artforthehome #thenativecreative #communityovercompetition #ladyboss #girlbosses #beyourownboss #mycreativebiz #bossbabe #creativehappylife #dontquityourdaydream #femaleentrepreneur #womenhelpingwomen #beingboss #creativebusiness #createcultivate #designisinthedetails #designinspiration #colorhunters #showit #showitdesigner #brandingdesigner #creativebrabing #brandingforcreatives #webdesigner
