Oliver & Spence Creative  Exclusive Design Studio - Building Lush Brands, Packaging Design, Web Design + Social Media Design

Wow for every women in the tech sector YYC, this is the conference to be at. Kylie and the amazing team at Chic Geek have hit it out of the park. Day 1 - the speakers were TOP NOTCH - leaders in tech from North America. I'm uber impressed with all of these women from the presenters as well as the Chic Geek team. It was inspiring, engaging, warm and welcoming. Can't wait for day 2 to start ... signed up for the workshop "Coding like Coco Chanel". How fun is does that sound for this creative girl??!⠀

5 Best Tips to Prepare for Your Brand’s Photoshoot⠀

The best photoshoots are when the you, your Creative Director and your Photographer all come together to plan, organize and execute your photoshoot to perfection. Photoshoots are expensive and time-consuming so getting it right the first time is critical to the success of your shoot.⠀

There are so many factors that we don’t think about when setting up a great shot. We know we need to get the right shot, in the right location, in the right light – while you look your most amazing self. It is trickery at it’s finest. The more organized you are, the more you will help your creative team get the best possible results. And really who doesn’t want gorgeous images of themselves to plaster all over their websites and social pages? ⠀

Why I Quit Instagram and Found my Brand Voice in the Process. ⠀

I didn’t quit on purpose, I didn’t do it intentionally – I just didn’t want to do it anymore. I didn’t know why but I know myself well enough that I trusted my instinct that I needed a break. I didn’t know if it was going to be forever all I knew is that I had nothing to say or share.⠀

Leading up to my break if I’m being truly honest I have to admit, I was posting what I thought would garner attention for our company and brand. I wasn’t posting authentically, I felt lost and worse I felt like a fraud because I was only posting what I thought people wanted to see. I ran out of steam continually, I changed directions, I would be inspired by someone else’s social media presence and thought – “yes” I want this for us. And worse yet, I was coaching our clients to always “post with purpose”, and there I was, not listening to my own professional advice. I was exhausted by trying to keep up the front.⠀

Thankfully my I listened to my instinct and just took a big break from it all. ⠀

On our blog this week I share why I took a break from all things social, why we rebranded, how I found my brand voice and winning those perfect ideal clients. Link in Bio⠀

I don't know about you but I'm a stickler for a deadline or not being late. I hate to disappoint my clients and will kill myself to make a deadline.

A big mistake some designers make is thinking because they look and sound good, they will be forgiven for bad service, or being late, or, or, or ... .

#1 Brand Mistake Many Designer’s Make

Over-promising and under-delivering.

The very best designers have learned to over-deliver on every one of their brand promises.
