July 10, 2011 in Business/Freelance Inspiration

Marketing is a huge part of building any company. And with proper marketing comes human networking which often involves the exchange of business cards. These bits of paper often contain information about your website, phone number, e-mail address, and location of your company headquarters.

With letterpress style business cards the type of relief printing uses a printing press accessible to a type-high bed. This allows for movable type and imagery which can be transposed over the card stock. Raised surface ink is pressed into the sheet of paper which allows for same-color stock to contain unique messages.

Creative Reviews Don’t Have to be Torture

November 22, 2010 in Business/Freelance design

If you’re a creative pro, it doesn’t matter whether it’s a photo, logo, layout, or video, someone’s got to review and approve your work. I’ve never met anyone who thought this process was fun, and it can be a huge hassle, especially if you have a big team of reviewers spread all over the globe.

If you want to stay in business, you must learn to streamline your review process and make the client happy with as few cycles and missed changes as possible. I’ve heard of people still using paper and faxes and all manner of markable materials to try to collect organized input. Then, of course you get the reviewers who disagree with each other, but don’t know it because they can’t see each other’s comments. There’s no getting around it — you can only try to maximize your time on creative and try to spend less in review.

Is this familiar? When you send out review, you:

  • Save your work as a separate, non-native file
  • Send the file to your list of reviewers
  • Go to the gym
  • Get coffee
  • Sleep on it
  • Awake to an inbox with as many replies as you have reviewers
  • Sort through the comments, crossing fingers there are no conflicts
  • Resolve conflicts
  • Get back to creating

Sucks, right? Picture this:

  • In your working file, choose Create New Review and give it a name
  • Invite all your reviewers to comment online
  • Skip the gym
  • Get coffee
  • Hop back into your artwork and find opinions already there
  • Respond immediately for all to see (avoid conflicts!)
  • Get back to creating
