Designing Woman

Remember when you were a kid that feeling on Christmas Day after unwrapping the gift you’d been really, really wishing for? Even when your mom said it was time to put your toys away, you would sneak in to take a quick peek, basking in your good luck, and maybe even take that toy off the shelf for just a quick second before rushing back to cleaning your room?

That’s the exact feeling I have with this wonderful new design you are checking out at the top of my blog! My super-fabulous designer Bonnie Collins of Bonnie Collins Design whipped this together and sent it to me late Friday. I couldn’t even wait to get back in the office to post it – it was up before I went to bed on Friday (never mind that I had 10 kids under the age of 7 at my house for my daughter’s birthday slumber party!)

Since then I’ve been sneaking away from my regular things-to-do list to admire how cute the slippers are on the “Amy Mac” you see at the top of the page, or playing around with a new font color, or adding links just to see how they look.
My advice to clients is always to invest in a top-notch designer like Bonnie to sharpen your marketing materials – it is always worth the investment, if for no other reason than you are more likely to hand out your card, mail your sales kit, or promote your blog if you are really excited about its aesthetic appeal.

If you are in the market for a good designer (and you should be if you don’t have one!), get in touch with Bonnie today. As you can see from her other work in this blog post, she has an amazing portfolio with a long list of high-profile of clients.

Here’s to following my own advice – and I hope, like me, you’ll find yourself peeking at this blog again and again! Let me know what you think.

Mim-I've made the text a little darker on the sidebars - see if that helps!

I couldn't agree with you more. Bonnie is a wonderful designer - she's creative, insightful, diligent and does some of the best graphic design work anyone could ask for. You should see her entire portfolio - it is top notch. I would highly recommend Bonnie. She's the type of designer who really listens to her clients and works with them to get what they want while giving each design her own creative flair. Bonnie is definitely someone you can count on!
