Designing business cards for what the Redhead said

At the start of the year, Redhead Babyled became what the Redhead said, and many hours of my time went into the name change and new design. In addition to redesigning Donna’s blog, I also created her new media pack to match her blog, and so when she needed new business cards I took on the task.

I used the fonts, colours & icons that I used for her blog to design the business cards, downloading template files from to make sure that I used exactly the right dimensions and so on. I exported the design in the recommended file format with the advised settings, and popped them in a Dropbox folder for Donna.

I can’t wait to see the final product when we catch up at Blogcamp next month!

I’m thinking about offering business card design as a product alongside my media packs, for £25 (not including printing costs, which are to be covered by the client) & in the file format of your choice. If anyone is interested, let me know!

Media pack introductory offer to end soon!

I’ve been having fun doing media packs for various bloggers, with an introductory rate of £40 for a media pack. The feedback has been really great!

The fee includes three image exports of various sizes, and a pdf file – complete with links, and compressed for easy emailing. Plus, free info updates of the file for one year.

Although it’s an enjoyable job, it is taking a little longer per pack than I expected so the intro price will be going up to £50 per pack when I get back from our holiday next week – not a huge increase but an increase nonetheless! Orders made before 23rd March 2015 will be charged at the £40 rate, but after that I will be increasing the price.

To order a media pack just head here and fill out the form. All orders will be fulfilled after I get back from our holiday.

Media Packs now available!

Well, I have to say I didn’t expect that. Following the inclusion of the media pack I created for Donna at the end of my previous blog post, I am now offering Media Pack design for bloggers. “Due to popular demand” is the appropriate phrase I believe!

I’ve gone for a price of £40, which reflects several hours of work designing & refining the pack, plus exporting and so on – I think this is fair. I’ve already added a second pack to my portfolio, having had the pleasure of doing one for Clare over at Emmy’s Mummy.

I enjoy doing these jobs as they are great in between coding sessions, requiring less constant focus (and therefore do-able when the kids are around!).

Media packs are brilliant for sending to brands and PRs who are interested in finding out more about your blog, or working with you. They include key info; an introduction to your blog, statistics, social media reach, and so on.

My new (temporary) site is here!

Having started work without making my work site first, I’m now finding it difficult to sort out my actual site as I am working on client sites and designs instead.

So, in the interim, I have decided to pick a fairly simple theme and get a temporary site up so I can make it easier for people to find out about the slightly weird way I operate, and to make it simpler for people to get in touch with me. I can also get blogging with some freebies, chat about recent projects, and so on.

I will be able to get my tip jar & design questionnaire form up & running too, as well as starting to add various content to my site as a whole. I think it will be a work in progress as I develop my business, and I will make it a design of it’s own as a side project soon… I hope!
