As a curious and passionate design student, with an itch for traveling and learning about new cultures, working and living abroad has always been a dream of mine. I am so thankful that with the help of Top Left Design, I’ve been able to make this a reality.
Can you believe it’s April already? This year is flying by!
I have been busy contributing articles to lots of business and marketing publications so it’s time to take a look at where we’ve featured in the press this year so far!
Tomorrow sees the second annual Udaya Live Yoga festival!
From time to time we like to give a shout out to our wonderful clients. And one such client is Eaton House Group of Schools – our main contact there is Rupert Back and we have been working together for many many years now!
Just like a puppy is not just for Christmas, your marketing activity is not just a fly by night afterthought. This is the time to get those matchsticks out and use them to open your eyes wide to the scary facts. This is an all-important part of your business. Be brave, and read on.
So many people work for “anyone who…” and forget that there are going to be some people who are in certain industries and positions, but don’t actually have the qualities that you would prefer all your clients to have. It has to do with personality, values and culture.
Not understanding who your client really is keeps you away from being able to better serve that client.
Every time we do one of our own newsletters, it’s a huge team effort and requires a combination of our planning, concept, illustration, writing, coding, formatting, and attention to detail skills. One of our clients is Simantov, and having seen how we do ours, decided they would like us to take care of theirs too! So far, we have done four, and we love them. Below are the headers and the footers and links to the full versions. Enjoy!
We are lucky to have such wonderful clients! Last year, we met the amazing director of Focus PR agency, Sara Balme. Focus PR is a London PR agency, specialising in consumer lifestyle, digital and experiential PR. They have 3 core sectors they work in: food & drink, beauty & health, luxury & lifestyle.
Have you ever had a situation where you worked on a great design, and the client asked you to change it to be more what THEY thought looked good – but you didn’t like their suggestions?
Images should be thought about carefully and can make or break your design for your website or blog posts. As well as using Shutterstock at Top Left Design and other paid for libraries, we also use these other great image libraries which are FREE – and we aim to never choose images which are poor quality or cheesy.
