The big trend right now in design is finding #hashtags to describe your work ... you ... your "look" ... so for about two weeks I chatted with my family, my close friends, the dogs (because sometimes they can just give you the look of good .... or no good!) and then I reached out to my web designer and asked him what three words he thought I should choose.
As a genius marketing officianado ... he prepared a questionnaire for me to send out to my clients, friends and design colleagues. I chose 30. This is baring your soul kind of stuff. I know what "I" think I am, or what my look is, but how do others perceive me.
It was anonymous. Seriously. I had no idea who answered what ... except the few who chose their own projects as their favorites and that made me laugh ... with Joy.
And here's what they (you) said.
Intuitive. - Adjective. Using or based on what one feels to be true even without conscious reasoning; instinctive.
Vibrant - Adjective. Full of energy and enthusiasm.
Collected - Adjective. (of a person) not perturbed or distracted ... (of individual works) brought together in one volume or edition.
I have never liked labels. I also have vowed to "never say never" because as soon as you do you will wish you hadn't. And that has how I have always thought about my design style. No labels. I will do what my client wants or needs me to do to create the life they want to live. And these words, that you chose, allowed me a "label" with freedom.
Intuitive -- I will meet you at your design desire.
Vibrant - I do love color, but energy and enthusiasm are not solely related to color.
Collected - I like to bring in design elements that have meaning and feel special. Even in chaos, which is sometimes where I work, I want to leave with a feeling of composure. For both me and my client.
