This year marks the 10th year since I graduated uni with my design degree and went out into the world looking for design work! So it seems fitting that it should also be the year that I have a rebrand, and a refresh of the services I want to offer.
I've taken the difficult but right decision to step away from wedding stationery, maybe not forever, but definitely for the time being, as I want to focus on my main love of design, which is branding for small businesses and start ups. I'm so grateful to every bride and groom I've worked with and I am super proud to have been a stationery finalist in 3 awards over the years, but now's the time for me to focus on my graphic design as I really feel passionate about helping small business owners create the dream branding they want for their new venture. Every small business is important and I want to help them feel confident in their visual identity so they can be proud to compete in their field against bigger but not necessarily better businesses and unleash their niche!
So, as well as continuing logo and branding design, for which I have had and still have some fabulous clients that I am so grateful for, I will be offering a small consultancy service to help those who want to understand more about the branding process and how to move forward with their new business, or get themselves out of a visual rut and engage with new customers through cohesive branding design across online and offline platforms.
Phew - are you still with me?!
And, throughout the year, primarily at seasonal times, I will be hosting online pop up shops with various Dottypink offerings, some handmade, some limited prints and some items on sale, so make sure you keep popping back for more news on those!
Thank you to everyone who has and still does support Dottypink, as a client, customer, friend or family member - I am so grateful to be able to do what I love and I am excited to make these small changes and see where it takes me now...
