Hey guys! I hope you all had a great weekend :)
Today I am honored to be sharing my Tour Through Blogland post, which I was invited to take part in by the wonderful Ashley from MINCK | CO. If you don't know Ashley, I highly suggest checking out her blog. She is so sweet and such a great blogging friend! I always love seeing what cool new brand, app or product she's introducing on her blog. I think all my Christmas ideas so far for this year have come from something she has introduced me to!
So, as part of this post I'm asked to answer a few questions.
1. What are you working on?
Oh gosh, I am currently working on many projects—all fun, but time consuming! I recently left my full time job as an art director at an agency to pursue my freelancing career and grow this blog. With that comes a bit of rebranding which I've been putting a lot of time into. I've also been working on some fun new posts for the blog. That's about all I'm going to share for now ;) Stay tuned!
2. How does your work differ from others in its genre?
As far as my blog goes, I think I differ from most in that I focus on a conscious and sustainable wardrobe, as well as tips on living a natural lifestyle. I try my best to show ways in which you can easily implement these things into your lifestyle without sacrificing style or simplicity.
Design-wise, I think my work differs from others due to my background in both illustration and graphic design. I am able to create pieces that combine both disciplines in unique ways. I'm also very understanding of my clients and easy to talk to. I'm available throughout the design process and really want my clients to be very happy with their end product.
3. Why do you write/create what you do?
Besides being a way to express myself, it's a very rewarding job for so many reasons. I love doing work that inspires and helps others, and I enjoying creating things in which I can actually see the end product and how others react to it. It's a very therapeutic and healthy way to spend my days. The more I create, the more creative I become.
4. How does your writing/creative process work?
Luckily up to this point in my life I have stayed almost consistently inspired. We all have days when we just can't find the motivation to create, but inspiration is always around. I have a lot of interests and ideas to blog about, so each week it's really just about organizing and sorting out those ideas. I try to do a good mix each week—usually predominately style posts, but mix in a recipe, natural beauty tips or design piece.
For my design work, it's sort of the same thing. I usually have so many ideas and things I want to do, that it's really about narrowing them down and organizing by priority so that my projects are manageable. For the actual project process, it's always about researching and gathering inspiration, sketching my ideas, refining those ideas and then the execution stage.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this post! As always, if you have any particular questions just shoot me an email!
