If you don’t look good, we don’t look good. – Vidal Sassoon, 1976

Shout out to South-Shore business owners! With over 15 years of graphic design experience (see my portfolio page) , I can help you look good. Really good!

Whether you need a new snazzy business card or a service card (like mine below) for your business or even a poster to enhance your shop window or craft show table, I’m your gal!

Depending on the scope of the project, I can offer clients a flat rate or hourly rates. Just drop me a line here  and let me know what you need.

My aim is to provide a turnkey graphic design shop for my clients, so get in touch with me and we can discuss your project and best of all, we will make it happen!

Anyway you Sylce.it

Anyone in the blogger / media / journalist realm interested in seeing a short presentation from the heads at Slyce on Oct. 30th in Montreal?

Possible meeting / interview with President Mark Elfenbien (Mood Media, Fun Technologies) and or Co-Founder Cameron Chell (BIG, FutureLink & UrtheCast). Let me know and I’ll hook you up with the organizers.

Canucks on the interwebs? Yup!

Interesting stats came out today on eMarketer regarding the number of Canadians now using social media.

Canada boasts some of the world’s highest internet penetration and social networking usage rates. Social network users view social media as their online home—a hub for communication, entertainment and information.

Does this mean more brand engagement, increased ROI and larger online marketing budgets? Gosh I hope so!

 

All will be revealed on January 27

It’s finally official – January 27, 2010 will be THE day that Apple announces it’s latest creation at a special event in San Francisco.

Am I Curious? Hell YES!

I predict a new iPhone OS 4.0, iLife ’10 and integration of all those components in this “newest creation”.

What do you think it will be called?  iSlate? Macbook Tablet? Apple Canvas (if you interpret the invite design)?

Let me know what your guess is.

Crush It! – Just Love It!

Just downloaded the Audible version of Gary V’s Crush It! this morning and I have to say “I LOVE IT!”

Even if you have the dead tree version (ehm, hardcover version), you’ll definitely want to hear the audio version.  As with anything Gary does, he does it his way and I must admit that the “off script” stuff is totally worth it.  They are like little gems!

Funny even HE can’t stick to his own words.  Gary just bursts with such enthusiasm and yes, passion, that he cannot even contain his urge to “sidebar” himself. Ha!

Totally worth owning both copies!
