We also talk about her love of New Wave film, her work as the Senior Creative Advisor at Biden for President, her current work at Studio Gradients, and more. Enjoy. The post Robyn Kanner: The Reflex Blue Show #230 appeared first on 36 Point.…
 
There are two things I started doing that have helped me provide a better service to my clients. Which, in turn, makes me a better designer as far as they are concerned. I've been doing one of them for quite a while, while the other I only started doing a few years ago, and much more so since the pandemic began. What are these two things, you ask? …
 
Gary Kopervas (Syndicated Cartoonist, and SVP Creative Strategy at Finch Brands), met with me at HOW Design Live in Boston. We discuss his ‘Doodle or Die’ workshop focusing on getting the ideas out of the the back of your brain, and onto paper where people can understand them. We also discuss how doodling can be used to bring a team together, and g…
 
Rania Svoronou (Executive Design Director at IBM), was at HOW Design Live in Boston, and sat down to talk about how to be a resilient leader. We also discuss why and how designers are, by nature, very resilient – and how we are constantly dealing with failure – so much failure. We also talk about AI design, and the present and future work involved …
 
Justin Ahrens, Jeff Bloom, Michele Pistone, and Kelly Wang discuss the last day of 2022’s HOW Design Live in Boston. What a great event, and one that feels way too short. That being said, HOW once again packed in more sessions than anyone could possibly ever see, and the amount of speakers is crazy. I can only hope Nashville in 2023 can live up to …
 
Justin Ahrens, Ti Chang, Stephen Gates, Jamie Saunders, Ahbleza Sellars, and Nicole Slaw discuss the second day of 2022’s HOW Design Live in Boston. Every conference has many things you remember, but always that one thing that you remember first. Sometimes it’s a speaker (for me, HOW 2014, Bob Gill). Sometimes it’s an outside event (for me, the Red…
 
Bill Gardner, Andrew Gibbs, Patty Lennon, Michael Roderick, and Terri Trespicio discuss the first day of 2022’s HOW Design Live in Boston. It was great to be back among so many creatives at the HOW Conference. The event, as usual, went by fast, and the countdown to 2023’s event in Nashville, TN has already begun. In addition to the 3 recaps, over t…
 
One of the best things about being human is our ability to make choices. If you’re in the mood for a hamburger but also in a rush, you still have options. Do you go to Mcdonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s or one of the other fast-food burger joints? If you’re in the market for a new car, do you look at Ford, Dodge, Toyota, or Honda? Need a new computer…
 
It’s so easy to get caught up in what we do, be that logo design, vehicle wraps, websites, trade show booths; you name it. We forget that our clients don’t live in the same world as we do. Our clients don’t see the world through a designer’s eye. When they look at a billboard, they see the message. When a designer looks at a billboard, not only do …
 
Justin Kemerling stops by The Reflex Blue Show to talk about his new book, In the Middle of Everything. Written 10 years after opening Justin Kemerling Design Co., the book does a great job of capturing a design career in, well, the middle. We also talk design for politics and activism, making your night job into your day job, and more. Thanks goes…
 
Ask any designer, and they’ll tell you that their number one way of landing new design clients is through word-of-mouth referrals. If you do an excellent job on a client’s project, there’s a good chance they’ll pass your name along should they hear of someone requiring services you offer. I’ve built my entire business on this model. And chances are…
 
Let me ask you something. How confident would you be buying a meal from a food truck that is so rusted and smoke-stained that you can’t make out its name on the side? Or how confident would you be staying at a motel where the paint was peeling off the doors, siding was missing on the building, and duct tape held the cracked windows together? Or how…
 
Karen Torok gave the closing day keynote at AAF Nebraska’s Meet the Pros—a student event that I wish all markets had something similar to. AAF Nebraska does an amazing job on this event (disclosure: I served on the committee this year, but have been promoting this event ever since I went while in college, and so would be telling you how great it wa…
 
Hi there, it’s Mark here. I’m sorry, but there won’t be a typical podcast episode this week. But I will be back next week with more great content to help you with your design business. In the meantime, I have a proposition for you. If you know anything about website ranking and SEO, you know the importance of good quality backlinks. How would you l…
 
The local tourism board where I live, a client of mine, in partnership with one of the local newspapers, produces a 72-page visitor guide every year for people visiting the area. The tourism director hired me to design a countertop display stand for these guides that they will place in various stores and businesses in the region. These visitor guid…
 
I had a conversation recently with fellow designers over how we refer to ourselves. This conversation started when one designer asked another why they referred to themselves as a freelancer? We then talked about the impression and stereotypes associated with the word freelancer. In the end, the designer acknowledged that it was in their best intere…
 
On Monday, when I sat down to start my week, I had an email in my inbox from a client giving me their approval to launch their new website. I anticipated this, and the site was live within an hour and a half. Satisfied with another completed project, I opened Plutio, my project management software of choice, to see what I was to work on next. And w…
 
Nikki Villagomez stopped through Omaha, Nebraska to give the opening day keynote at AAF Nebraska’s Meet the Pros—a fantastic student event that’s been going on for quite a while (like, well over 60 years now). She does a great talk about how culture affects the typography of a city—a talk that is adjusted to each market she’s given it in. We also t…
 
Don’t you hate that feeling when you can’t find what you’re looking for? It could be anything. You can’t find your wallet or your car keys. Have you misplaced your phone? Maybe it’s that scrap of paper you scribbled that critical information on that you can’t find. Regardless of whatever it is you can’t locate, you’re left with an empty feeling ins…
 
Great design books are still being made, it just feels like you have to look a bit harder to find them. Snails & Monkey Tails : A Visual Guide to Punctuation & Symbols, by Michael Arndt is one of them. Michael stops by The Reflex Blue Show to discuss his book, and, well a lot of punctuation and symbol stuff … pretty sure 1/2 the marks I use may be …
 
Wants and needs. What an interesting juxtaposition. I want a new sword for my collection. But I don’t need another sword. I want a cheeseburger and poutine for supper. But I don’t need all that fat or those calories. I want enough money to do whatever I want in life. However, I only need to make enough money to cover my expenses. Wants and needs. T…
 
NDAs or Non-Disclosure Agreements is a very popular topic here on Resourceful Designer. The previous episode I did on NDAs is one of the most searched posts on this site. I recently had the privilege of talking NDAs with attorney Gordon Firemark. Gordon practices entertainment law in California, the USA, where he helps artists, writers, producers, …
 
Communication: According to the dictionary, communication is the imparting or interchange of thoughts, opinions, or information by speech, writing, or signs. But that definition doesn’t do it justice. Communication is so much more than that. Without communication, conflicts could escalate. Governments would collapse. Businesses fail. And loved ones…
 
Last week, I talked about how you should view your worth. How you are a one-person team. I gave the example of a website project you might start where you take on the role of salesperson, researcher, UX and UI designer, developer, bookkeeper, etc. and how each one of those "people" should be compensated accordingly. That episode relayed a precious …
 
MockoFun reached 300,000 registered users. We've added a new 3D effect feature for shapes and text (kind of like bevel and emboss). We also added inner shadow settings and some new fonts: medieval and decorative fonts, sports, newspaper cut out letters, monogram fonts, etc.We've done improvements on our image to vector tool and added new templates …
 
I want to start with a story. A business coach client hired me for a design project about a dozen years ago. He had just finished writing his second book and wanted me to design and format it for him for publication. The project also included an accompanying bookmark and a small website related to the book. I had given him a quote for the project, …
 
Omaha designer and illustrator Amanda Walla stopped by The Reflex Blue Show to talk about what got her into lettering, and the 100 day challenge she did. Well, we do talk about this at first, but the real reason she stopped by was to talk about Star Wars. Amanda is part of the Duel of the Ranks podcast that, well, ranks all of the Star Wars media a…
 
Networking is all about getting your name out there. It's not about selling or pitching. It's about gaining recognition, building a reputation, if you will. Networking is the building block to every successful design business. Networking can take place anywhere and everywhere. You don't need to be at a conference, trade show or special networking e…
 
For this episode we sit down with Thesis and Corp 1 professor Jennifer Masters, who gives us an insight into things to keep in mind for thesis, design in general as well as looking for a new job.

A look back at 2021 and a look ahead to 2022. Thank you for your continued interest in Resourceful Designer. You have no idea how much I appreciate you. There are so many great resources available for learning and growing as a designer, and I’m humbled that you chose to spend a bit of your valuable time with me. I am continuing my annual tradition.…
 
Make the most out of print brokering. In episode 49 of the Resourceful Designer podcast, I talked about offering print brokering as a means to supplement your design business. If you do print design and do not offer print brokering, you’re losing out on a lot of potential income. I made over $1,000 from three different print jobs this past week alo…
 
Don't confuse clients with rates that don't match your brand. I’d like you to imagine this scenario. There’s a neighbourhood in your city that you love. It has beautiful homes with big yards and lots of green space around. It’s close to amenities like schools and shopping. And the internet infrastructure is state of the art, which we know is a must…
 
The reason to use checklists. I first talked about checklists way back in episode 89 of Resourceful Designer. In it, I shared various types of checklists you can use for your business. I even shared my now outdated checklist for starting a new WordPress website. Today, I’m not going to share checklist ideas with you. Instead, I want to talk about t…
 
Be wary of your reputation. Let me tell you a story. It is a story that has nothing to do with graphic or web design, but it is relevant to running a business, and I'll tie that into running a design business if you stick around to the end. We built our house in 2005. Or, more accurately, we had someone build our home in 2005. If you've ever built …
 
Do you know how to give a good critique? One of my professors made us critique our classmates’ projects at the end of every college assignment. Once we completed a design project, he would place everyone’s design at the front of the class, and one by one, he would select students and ask them to critique one of the projects. The reason he did this …
 
For this episode we sit down with our dear friends, colleagues and peers. We discuss the projects we worked on during the summer, our first impressions of our third and final year, and thesis ideas. As well as a fun design related lighting round at the end of the episode!
 
Are you getting enough activity? In episode 105 of the podcast Coping With Isolation When Working From Home, I discussed how isolation is a significant concern for anyone running a home-based design business. Spending day after day with minimal contact with other people can take its toll on someone. In that episode, I gave recommendations for overc…
 
Which personality do you use most often? Let me ask you a question. Does being a designer, either graphic, web, UX, UI or whatever, qualify you to run your own design business? Some people may say yes. After all, are there any differences between designing something for an employer or an employer's clients and designing something for your own clien…
 
As a freelance designer, you will face peaks and valleys while running your business. I've said it before, and I'll repeat it. There's nothing better than working for yourself. From deciding who you want to work with to how much you want to charge for your work. Being your own boss is, well, liberating. As your own boss, you get to set your own hou…
 
For this episode, we sit down with Kristine Do, professor at George Brown College, for 'Professional Practice' and 'Thesis'. We go over her thoughts on jumping into freelance right out of college, what employers are looking for in candidates and of course, her perspective on teaching thesis and what students should do to succeed.…
 
Earlier this week, a member of the Resourceful Designer Community was seeking advice. A potential client contacted her asking if she designs book covers, which she does. Before replying to this unknown person, she decided to investigate who they were. She discovered that this potential client is an author. And the subject they write about is someth…
 
In this episode we sit down with Paul Haslip, extraordinary designer and teacher at the School of Design. Paul talks about thesis, the do's and dont's , and third year students can succeed. Other topics include starting your own business, inspiring designers and much more!
 
We’re lucky that we chose a profession where confidence beats knowledge. Before I dive deeper into that, we first have to look at what confidence is. According to disctionary.com, Confidence is the belief in oneself and one's powers or abilities. Confidence is what’s center stage when you say, “I can do this.” Confidence is what’s driving you when …
