Welcome to our first FletcherFind where I aim to introduce the wonderful small businesses and owners I come across during my business travels.
Please note this interview was conducted via Twitter and each answer was limited to 140 characters!
FTA: Here ready to interview @InkblotAU via twitter – just checking on technicalities. Are you there Leah?
LK: Testing, testing 1, 2, 3. Roger that!
FTA:Great thanks @InkblotAU First off the bat – Can you describe what you do IN one tweet?
LK: I’m a designer who invests in successes of other biz’s. I create relationships + loved ideas. I love + take care of your brand.
FTA:Fantastic! Sounds like you are very passionate about your clients getting the image they are proud of @InkblotAU
LK: I am, I love clients who love what they do, and love the badge that I have created for them!
FTA:You must have had some bizarre jobs throughout your time – can you share any @InkblotAU?
LK: I designed wedding invite where I had to Photoshop more hair on the groom at brides request! #iloveyoujustthewayyouare
LK: I wonder if she thought he wouldn’t notice that he wasn’t bald anymore? I would have been offended, poor groom
FTA: @InkblotAU That truly has to be a one of a kind request – fantastic!
FTA: What is one of your best tips for business owners working with graphic designers @InkblotAU?
LK: Know target market inside out! What they eat, where they shop etc. Let us brand you WELL – makes 1000% difference
FTA: And what would be the hardest type of client to deal with @InkblotAU? Any examples?
LK: Controlling client! Design is a process it requires trust in designer& respect for their work. Restricting =less value
FTA: Can you show us an example of a favourite logo you designed (or one of them if it’s hard to choose) @InkblotAU?
LK: It’s so hard, like picking a favourite child (or furbaby!) but this is recent and noteworthy: http://on.fb.me/9Fa17E
FTA: And finally @InkblotAU , is it true that graphic designers get inspired anytime, anywhere from anything?
LK: Well I do! It’s more than 9-5 job. For me, it’s a lifestyle. Im constantly absorbing day+night = inspiration!
FTA: And what a lifestyle to be able to work with such great inspiring businesses. Many thanks @InkblotAU for the interview.
