Spice it up with GraphicsWant to sprinkle in a few graphics with your next post?
Canva.com is my go to site when I want to create an infographic in a pinch or add a bit of flavor to a post. This site is a huge win for those of us without photoshop skills!
They make it easy to select a pre-sized design template.
This relieves us all from spending hours of precious time resizing photos.
So, go on and begin dazzling everyone with your beautiful posts
Enjoy the weekend- Kimberly

|Tips and Tricks from my experience using 99designs. |
|Tip: Browse logos from completed contest for inspiration. |
Read the design briefs of the logos that catch your eye and use similar descriptive words for your brief.
|I posted my contest at around 11pm and by 7am the next morning I had 15 designs waiting for me.|
Over the duration of the contest I realized a theme of most designers working over night and a new batch
of designs waiting the next morning.

Pre-Start up life. Somewhere between concept and debut. That's where I sit today. I'm hoping my post will meet someone who is in the same seat and save them some hours of research and maybe from a few mistakes. Just a disclaimer i'm still learning and 5 years from now I may read this post and think " Wow, I was totally wrong". With that said here are a few pointers and resources that i've stumbled upon so far..
This site offers templates and documents galore, some free and some you pay for.. But, I was reeled in by all the free resources they have available. It's actually a great marketing concept. They offer startups a plethora of resources and in return gain a loyal audience.
Resources available: Step by step guides, videos, and tools on everything from Business plans to Marketing.
This site was literally the first resource I stumbled upon that provided comprehensive content and I still reference their site today!
