Hi all, it’s been a while and I hope you’ve all been doing well. I’ve been keeping very busy with life and work. One of my jobs is teaching at the Melton South Community Centre where I teach a variety of classes, one of these is “How to get your Business Online.” One of my students was having issues with someone he was using to create the logo/ business card so I offered to take a look. I had him sorted out in under 60 minutes, taking the existing design and re-working it to fix the problems he could not get the company to do. Well, that sparked my interest.
The other thing that we worked out, at the END of his process with these logo creators is that you were expected to pay a subscription fee to own the images. I really borked at that concept and as such, I have decided to throw my hat into the ring and offer reasonably priced logo/ branding options to all my clients. For those of you who know me in person, you would know that I like to be upfront about costs and outline costs upfront. It’s been a core foundational principle for all of my computer work and it continues here in my logo designs.
Check out the new “Logos” tab at the top of this site, or go to http://www.hobstar.io/logos to take a look. You can also email me at my usual email address; email@example.com or phone me if you already have my number.
As part of this new venture, I’ve also been teaching myself some new skills. I’m learning how to use Inkscape (a free and open-source alternative to Photoshop) and a few other programs. Additionally, I’m learning to code in HTML5 (used for making a variety of things, especially your own websites) so that I will soon be able to build websites for clients as well. I’ve found working with WordPress and other like services to be an overall frustrating process and it’s time to take things to the next level.
A special shout out to Logos By Nick on YouTube for his excellent tutorials and Master Class for helping me bolster my skills. It never ceases to amaze me the things you can teach yourself online for free or for very little. Bring Your Own Laptop has also been an invaluable source of information and tutorials on a wide range of topics, including the aforementioned HTML5.
It just goes to show what I always say;
“Never Stop Learning”
