During the design process, there are always revisions from the client. It’s always great to give helpful feedback so that it will help the project run smoothly, quickly, and easily. I don’t think these tips apply only to designers. All these steps can apply to giving feedback in any industry. These are the tips I use for work or when I’m in mastermind groups and have to give my opinion. Here are the 5 tips for providing your designer with helpful feedback.
5 Tips For Providing Your Designer With Helpful Feedback
01. When you’re listing revisions use bullet points or numbers.
This is something I do all the time. I like to keep things clean and concise. I wouldn’t say I’m a neat freak, nevermind I am. I mean even the mess on my desk is organized in some way. It just looks messy.
Creating bullet points and numbers makes everything look clean and organized. For example, look at this blog post. All the tips are numbered and separated. If I didn’t add the numbers then it would just be one big blob. No one wants to read things that look cluttered and messy.
Another reason to keep things numbered is that I don’t want to miss any feedback. What if I read through the whole email and accidentally miss something? I’ve received long emails from family and friends who don’t organize their emails into bullet points. It just looks like one big mess and I have missed things because everything was jumbled together.
No matter what industry you’re in, it looks professional to list things in bullet points and numbers. If you’re emailing your family and friends, that would be nice too.

I’m not good at improvising. I think most of us aren’t. So when I take a call or go to an interview I’m always prepared. I look up the questions that someone will potentially ask me and then I rehearse my answers. Since a consult call is like a short interview, I’ve prepared 5 questions to ask your designer on a free consult call. Continue reading “5 Questions To Ask Your Designer On A Free Consult Call”
People are under the misconception that it costs a lot of money to start a business. This depends on your definition of ‘a lot of money’ and your business idea. If you’re starting off online, it’s way easier to start a business. In this post, I’m going to explain how to launch your online business for under 200 dollars.
How to launch your online business for under 200 dollars:
You need something to sell
The first thing you need is something to sell. Not just anything, but something that people actually want. This can be either a service or a product. When I say product, I mean digital product. Physical products will cost money to produce, so I won’t include them in this post. Continue reading “How to launch your online business for under 200 dollars”

If you didn’t know, before I studied design and front-end web development, my background was in Radio/TV/Film (RTVF). My main responsibilities included writing scripts, revising scripts, filming, and editing. In fact, when I decided to join the Interactive Media Certificate Program (IMCP), I only joined to learn how to create animations (not knowing that it concentrated more on design) but fell in love with design instead. Here are 3 ways my RTVF degree made me a natural designer. Continue reading “3 ways my RTVF degree made me a natural designer”
A lot of people don’t know that photographs are part of branding. When you’re adding photos to your website and social media accounts, it’s important to make sure they match your brand style, so your audience will become more familiar with your brand. If not, then it would be hard to recognize your brand from any other account, and you want your account to be recognizable and attract your audience. Here are 3 types of photos you can use to brand your business. Continue reading “Photos you can use to brand your business”
I notice that some people who design websites, don’t really know how to create websites, but focus on choosing a theme from Squarespace or WordPress. I don’t personally have a problem with this because they are actually offering a service. They are designing a website for clients. People put all this emphasis on not being able to develop a website when there are some developers who have no design ability. You need a good design to attract clients.
Well, I actually have a background creating websites and I’m a designer. I was in the Front End Development program at San Diego Continuing Education (but I didn’t get to finish the last few weeks because I had to move back to Houston). To me, creating websites from scratch using HTML and CSS is fun and easy. Even though I love creating websites from scratch, here’s why I use WordPress to design client websites.
