Welcome to my new blog and homepage!
I'm so exited to finally share with you what I've been working on for the last months.
So here we go, so much changed on my page.
Obviously the design!
I invested in a great designer for my logo design and branding. But before I committed to the right designer, Rachel from Miss Poppy Design, I first had to kiss the wrong frog.
I made the mistake to hire an inexperienced cheap designer. She was really nice, but I wasn't pleased by the results. Actually I was a little disappointed and sad because I spent that money.
After this disaster I went on and searched a long time! I wanted someone that understands my taste and needs, for a price that I could afford.
So if your think about hiring someone to help you create a beautiful branding and a professional design, don't go for the cheapest solution if your gut feeling is telling you otherwise. If you have a weird feeling about a designer, it is probably not the right one for you! Even if it's the cheapest solution. It will be the more expensive one on the long run.
Now I am really happy to share my new logo with everybody! Rachel did a great job and I'm really pleased with the result!
Tomorrow there will be a post on the blog about branding. How to create a strong branding for your creative BIZ, without a big budget and without selling your soul.
So if you're interested, come back tomorrow!
For today I want to give a you bit more information about the changes on my homepage and in my Business.
I started my BIZ in 2013, it seems so long ago now, because all the things that happened since then. Back then I just wanted to help other creatives, sell my art and earn some money on the side to pay the bills.
I wanted to create a sustainable business, but I really had no idea how to achieve that.
My old studio in Eindhoven!
After trying a lot of stuff and learning a ton about having my own business, I am now ready to upgrade my creative adventure.
I've split my homepage in two major sections, fine art and the BIZ school for creatives.
The fine art section is al about my art practice. I've changed al the copies and images I had on my previous page. I've also added a new offering to my fine art repertoire.
I'm now offering commission artworks.
So from now on, if you are interested in buying one of my artworks, but you want something even more special, or you have special requests for your artwork, like a custom sizes, colors,... , you will be able to get what you want! Without even leaving my homepage.
I'm so excited to finally offer this service!
In a few weeks I will add another offering to my repertoire, but for now I won't tell more about that. Let me know what you think it is in the comments below and don't forget to sign up to be the first to know what is going to happen!
Next to the fine art section I create a whole new part of my homepage, THE BIZ SCHOOL FOR CREATIVES.
The BIZ school is all about helping you start and grow your creative BIZ. So you're able to create a sustainable business around your creative passion, without selling your soul!
From now on there will be three ways for you to work with me through free content, through my online courses and workshops and through personal coaching.
You'll find a ton of free information on my blog, my social media channels and my newsletter.
Because I want to help as many creatives as possible!
