Always, and even though I know it in my mind, it’s so hard to get something started. The starting point is the most difficult part. I started my own Instagram account @browneyednotes a long time ago when Instagram was really kicking it off. I wanted to share my thoughts and my memories with my family and relatives that were abroad. Then it started to become a channel for me to
When it comes to consulting there are many different aspects and types of consulting. There are some cases I just sit down with a parent or a CEO and all I do is listen to their story. By the time their storytelling is done, they’ve figured things out on their own and go home with their consulting solutions. For educational consulting many different parts coincide with each other.

My career has always and I say this with emphasis, always taken a curveball at some point. It was never easy. It was never a given and it was never, ever laid out for me.

Mock up desktop image designed by Yeven_popov I never really wanted to take part in the design and actual “making part” of my
There’s always room for “improvements” when it comes to presenting your work to a client. I have NEVER given a client a design or mockup on just plain white paper. There’s a reason for that and it’s the most simple and obvious reason. HUMANS ARE VISUAL ANIMALS. We need to SEE what it looks like when it’s displayed on an actual SCREEN, BOOK or CARD to get a glimpse of

Some of you have been asking me how I start my design process and what tools I use to design. To tell you a long story short, I use Adobe Illustrator CS6 for the initial START of designing everything (except websites). Then I bring it into Indesign or Photoshop. But for most COLLATERAL (print materials) I stay in Illustrator. This is how I start my artboard layouts. It’s really
