What do you think? Do you like the subtle GIF animation or the colorful graphic as a better promotional item? I like them both, but which one is most effective in relationship to “today”?
Its that time. You know it well, its when that cool awareness kicks in and you clearly take a look at your recent work over the last few months, and I do mean personal and business. You begin to see a thread of change. That change shows you what is consistently in demand, what is not. It displays what needs further research and troubleshooting and what simply needs to be updated and promoted more. The last 2.5 years have been really productive for my graphic design business outside of teaching. More client work continues to appear and they request both short and long term projects. I find myself saying YES to many things I would not have thought about 2 or 3 years ago.
I find this really exciting! The “New” always presents itself as both a little scary and very thrilling! That balance of energy is contagious and inspiring. Reinventing and or revising our businesses intentions are so important for our growth both as individuals and as a business providing services. People like Chris Brogan continue to inspire me greatly, and also remind me (everyday via twitter) that these changes are necessary to expand. We must continue to become the best communicators that we can. The only way to do this is to constantly question and take notice to what is being generated every few months. That is the metric. I find it fun. Do you?
I have revised the list a of current services that I offer, and am promoting my business this way:
Ryan Seslow Art & Design LLC offers the following services:

Web Design – I love WordPress and building self-hosted WordPress websites and blogs. I also love to code and create custom websites.

Of course I love to work manually too. This includes drawing, painting, collage & printmaking techniques in silk screen & rubber stamping.
Digital Marketing – Content creation, development, blogging, e-mail marketing, social media & digital storytelling. Let me help you promote your business, service, project or organization.

Presentations & Speaking – I love to give talks and presentations about my work, teaching, business and the creative human potential! Would you like me to come to your school, college, university, office or private event? Lets connect!
There it is. Writing this out has been a great help. I have simplified things, become more clear in my explanations and can now reapply new images and other promotional media to support each criteria.
