Do it Differently.

Do it Differently.

Steve Jobs was right, you know. Better is not a sustainable goal. And competition is all a big smoke screen anyway. There is no such thing as competition when it comes down to it, because there is more than enough business out there for everyone. If someone chooses to...

The Digital Version of You

The Digital Version of You

I don’t know if you realize this or not – but who you are and how you show up is the real reason behind why people do or do not buy the stuff you are selling. Because, really, you are selling you. Your product may be killer, but if you are an asshat, your...

Are You Trying to Do It All?

Are You Trying to Do It All?

Most entrepreneurs are “different”. They like to do things themselves. They like to understand all facets of their latest project. And 8 out of ever 10 project fails. Why do you think that is? Well, it isn’t like I’ve done any scientific...

Before & After: A Makeover for Melody

Before & After: A Makeover for Melody

I’ve known Melody Granger for awhile now. At least five years. Maybe seven. I don’t remember exactly when we met, and quite frankly, I suck at gauging both time and distances. Either way, she’s an organizing genius. I’ve utilized her skills...

Niche, Smiche.

Niche, Smiche.

Make Something So You Can Market It.

Make Something So You Can Market It.

Under normal circumstances, I am the last person to advocate following rules or a certain step-by-step process. And, really, that isn’t what I want to say here today – because there is no step-by-step process that will guarantee you anything in this life....

Subtle Doesn’t Work on the Internet

Subtle Doesn’t Work on the Internet

As someone who loves a well-designed product, I revel in little bits of detail that other people may not notice. A swirl here that points your eye to a key word, or slight kerning on a word that makes it stand out more – those are the things that bring a smile...

Being Responsive Isn’t Just For Websites

Being Responsive Isn’t Just For Websites

How true is that quote? What I want to say to you today is on the surface about making sure your website is responsive. But deep down inside, it’s about making sure your whole life is too. Let me explain. It recently came to my attention that there are a crap...

Please Don’t Make Your Own Website.

Please Don’t Make Your Own Website.

It’s good that you don’t know where to start – because if you are making font choices like the ones in this picture, you should not be making your own website. And not just because that’s how people like me make a living. There is a much bigger...

No two projects are created equal

No two projects are created equal

The subtitle to this should probably be, “Or Why One-Size-Fits-All Pricing Doesn’t Work”. In the web design business, every website is different. Even if you think your project is exactly like another one, it isn’t. Your offerings will be...
