We showed you the strong and beautiful logo we did for @candsclarkvz a while back. ⠀
Well here is her eye-catching #moodboard we did that helped to create her final Logo ✨ ⠀
The process of creating your dream brand starts through a selection of images that feel as though they represent the feeling of the brand. Once these are selected we turn them into a gorgeous mood board that envelops the true essence of the colours, the look and the overall feel of the brand. ⠀
We want our clients to enjoy their branding process and what better way to do it then by letting them help unfold their dream.⠀
Want to see your dream brand unfold? Follow our website link in our bio for more information.
Making money online seems like a mystery to a lot of people. But it does not have to be difficult as some people make it out to be. Grandmas, you more than likely have a smartphone because the dumb phones barely work anymore. Get the free eBay app on your phone. Go to yard sales and sell what you find online.
Do you have a pool in your back yard? Give swimming lessons.
Have even one horse? Riding lessons.
Know how to cook? There are so many people who leave home and have no idea because their parents did not take the time to teach them.
Men do you know how to work on cars? Same goes for you.
You have a skill. Use it.
You don't need a website for a side hustle. (I think you should if you are thinking long term, but that is a discution for another day.) Get the attention of others and make it known that it is avalible.
This brand was created for a new practice opened by @michellegrasek , a cosmetic acupuncturist with a focus on natural beauty.
When we started this project, we knew we wanted to create something bold and fun, but also classic and elegant. Something that gives you that “treat yo’ self” feeling. 💆♀️ ✨
This chunky-yet-classic font was the perfect fit, doncha think??
Working on this brand was so fun and Michelle is literally the best! I’m seriously overwhelmed by how amazing my clients are and the incredible businesses they are running!
If more than half the current workforce will leave a job because they feel unsupported by upper management, it just goes to show how Employee Engagement is very much a top-down initiative.
If you want your business to function properly, allowing you time to focus on business decisions, you have to put faith in your employees, and believe that what you hired them for, is what they are doing.
Create the kinds of organizational tools to increase your employees' knowledge and skill-sets, and create the kind of place that your employees love working in. If you have employees that love going to work, they'll love performing well for you as well.
‘My main advice for someone starting out now would be to create as much as possible. Whatever you want to do, do it constantly so you’re always learning new skills and perfecting your craft.’ For the first part of my brand new blog series, I chatted to the wonderful @gattoweb about running a creative business ⚡️ Read it now over on the blog - link in bio.
As a small business owner, you may have dreams of your company becoming the next Amazon or Apple, or you might be content making a splash in your local community. Either way, you may wonder how you can make it against large companies that seem to have the people and resources to do the things you can't do.
Just because your business is small, that doesn't mean you can't think big.

BACK AT IT AGAIN 🤗 Happy Tuesday world! When I tell you guys that our 2020 collection is going to be hot...I'M NOT KIDDING YOU! It's fun being more involved in the production process by giving my boss my creative opinion on what he should do with our new pieces. This is one of them 😍 When I asked to see a sample from our factory of the tie dye paired with the black fleece and trim that he suggested, I instantly saw my next design inspiration! These hoodies are going to be dope 😎

Today I get to head back to the @uofulifelonglearning center and continue the 3 week workshop I am teaching there. .
Last week we learned how to create a pattern, transfer then stitch. .
Today, I will be teaching the students how to paint with watercolor on fabric. .
I’m excited for them to practice and learn how to fix mistakes when they happen and just for them to experience the joy I do when the paint spreads all over. .
I can’t wait!

Raise your hand if Creators Block hits you too🙋🏼♀️? Someone DM’d me recently asking how to quickly bust through their creative block? They were working on a painting that started strong and they just got stuck. Sound familiar?
I shared two really simply and easy ways that really just brings us all back to the basics.
We can sometimes over complicate things when they really don’t have to be. Head over to today’s blog post (link in bio @melissalewisart) to read more in detail.
And give me a ❤️ here to let me know I’m also not the only one who ever has to deal with creative block! 😉
💫 Life is asking you for balance 💫⠀
To give and receive.⠀
To lean in and to let go.⠀
To move and to be still.⠀
To inhale and exhale.⠀
To be full and to release.⠀
It’s all a beautiful balance of contrasts.⠀
Balance begins within.⠀
And when you breathe into the contrasts of life, you find ease in the journey 🔮

Keep in mind that when you’re building, some sacrifices are involved. Some people stop eating out, some give up cell phones, cable, nice cars, buying clothes, even their own homes for the bigger picture. Sacrificing is not an “L”. Sacrificing is letting baggage go so that you can climb to the next level. Do you agree?

this might just be my fave image of the trip. well of the cars anyway. i hope you like it too🙈 this beauty of a car pulled up outside the hotel and i RAN and i mean RAN to get a photo. but mainly, i love it because this one was a challenge for me to edit because it was underexposed and really dark when i first took it. and i love a good challenge. i’m so happy with the result. feel like i’ve managed to enhance the colours to their full beauty🙌🏼 what do we think, are we liking all the vintage car photos? and are we liking the cuba content in general? please let me know what you think. there is loads more to come yet my loves ❤️❤️ hope you’ve all had a lovely tuesday, aside from a public nosebleed incident my day has been FAB U LOUS 🙊💓

¡bienvenidos a cuba mis amigos!
HELLO. ITS ME. yes i went for an adele style comeback there. but i am back. i hope everyone is well and had a lovely easter and two weeks. i am raring to go with travel content for you and i can’t wait for you all to see it. i really enjoyed the two week hiatus tbh. but i got home this morning feeling rested and ready to get stuck back into stuff. i hope you didn’t miss me too much and that the two weeks weren’t too bad. i tried to stick around a bit despite wifi issues. i missed you all so much and i’m so happy to be back.
QOTD: have you ever been to Cuba? if not, is it somewhere you would like to visit or have considered visiting? let me know below. lots of love❤️
something I neglected for quite a long time was to create space for myself to tap into my creativity;
my zone of genius 🌸🦋🌿🍄✨ .
I used to think that there were ”more important things I should do“ rather than allowing myself to do what I love most:
making my imagination become a part of reality 🎆🔮
by visually expressing my thoughts & emotions 💡🌿
through colors and brush strokes 🎨
for me, art is an act of loving myself 💗
it’s part of my self-care routine 💅🏼🧖🏼♀️ .
because it is what allows me to feel free🌾
it grounds me.
it allows me to heal.
it reconnects me with myself and my surroundings 🌍🌞🌙🌟✨ .
personally, i believe we all need a creative outlet in our lives🦋
whether it’s painting, writing, playing an instrument, singing, gardening... even cooking!! 🍲(or coming up with fun new exercises for your workout?🤓 @pamela_rf)
any creative activity that gets us into flow state, silences our judgemental voices, allows us to just let loose and play around like a child 🐙🍄 .
because that’s something we all deserve!🧡 #youdeservethisgewinnspiel#pamelareif .
p.s: excuse my right eye haha it looks kinda weird if you stare at it long enough😂😂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Dicas de Hashtag:
Use todas às 30 hashtags
30 hashtags é o limite oficial de hashtags do Instagram por postagem. Por que usar todas as 30 hashtags? Porque cada uma é uma oportunidade para alcançar mais pessoas.
Evite usar hashtags muito grandes = hashtags com mulhoes de posts = muita concorrência.
Use hashtags menores = sem muitos posts = comunidade mais restrita ao seu nicho.
Use uma mistura de hashtags (hashtags grandes e pequenas).
Encontre hashtags que seus clientes ideais usam.
Pode ser aquilo que você nem imagina. Por exemplo, se você é vende canetas fofinhas, pense em quem vai querer canetas fofinhas. (por exemplo: mulheres empresárias #mulheresempreendedoras ).
Use as hashtags que as pessoas pesquisariam para encontrar um produto ou serviço como o seu.
Use hashtags que descrevam seu produto / serviço
Isso ajudará as pessoas a encontrar você diretamente quando elas estiverem procurando algo específico.
Use hashtags de localização. Você é um negócio local?
Use hashtags de localização.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #business tem 48 milhões de posts.
É lotado e competitivo. Suas postagens serão enterradas no oceano de outras postagens rapidamente.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #businesspassion tem menos postagens. Essa hashtag é menos geral e reúne uma comunidade empresarial apaixonada.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Hashtag de comunidade:
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mycreativecommunity é um exemplo de uma hashtag da comunidade que reúne pessoas específicas: empresários de indústrias criativas.
