Yes a logo can form part of that communication (and should compliment and not detract from your key message). Bu...

Does your website need to be perfect to grow your business?

Curating Your Brand Will Make You Remarkable

"You don't make a great museum by putting all the art in the world in a single room. That's a warehouse. What makes a museum great is the stuff that's not on the walls. Someone says no. A curator is involved, making conscious decisions about what should stay and what should go. There's an editing process. There's a lot more stuff off the walls than on the walls. The best is a sub-sub-subset of all of the possibilities." Rework Jason Fried & David Heinemeister Hansson...

As a designer I can often see how things could look better. The frustration for me is if I don't have the tools to implement those changes. Or if all my energy goes on figuring out technical things at the expense of actually making something look good. So when I built my own website, I did what everyone else did and got myself a Wordpress theme. I even paid for 'training'. And then I spent almost the next year in states of absolute over-it-ness attempting to create a decent site. (The training s...
