In these posts, I hope to shed some light on some of the strategies and design processes that we undertake when we are working with our clients so that you can gain an understanding of what design is all about.

I do appreciate that Graphic Design, as a service, is hard to quantify if you have no experience of it. If there are subjects that you are not sure about and have questions about, then please do get in touch via our form at the bottom of the page.

I am happy to receive emails from you but hide the address in a form to avoid being spammed by bots. The form does come through to me though, so don't be concerned about where it is going.

I look forward to hearing any feedback you have. 

Kind regards

Billie Sharp - Graphic Designer and Inclusive Optimization Trainer

Ok so what about Twitter? Following up from my previous blog post 'How do I use Linkedin?' I did the same for Twitter. I typed into Google 'How do I use Twitter?'. So this time I was delighted to find this upbeat YouTube video link that takes you through all the elements of setting up and using Twitter with visual references too.
I was delighted to find land in my inbox one of the few email newsletters that I do keep and read. This one was from Business Link, a website I have visited many times and would urge you to consult as a first port of call with any business query. With great timing around my last couple of blog posts it gave me a link to a very informative guide on how to write a blog that people want to read!
The Real Business Club logo as designed by innov8 graphic design.
Sometimes you want a new pair of boots or coat for work, just that touch of quality to really say something about you and your business. I visual token to refresh your message and show that you are serious about the work you do. Redesigning The Real Business Club's logo was a big joy for me because they really do help businesses get off the ground and to grow. That is the very thing I strive for at innov8 and it is where my job satisfaction comes from (Yes i'm one of those lucky few who loves her job).
The Real Business Club website as designed and built by innov8 graphic design.
The Real Business Club's new website is now live. Helping start up and small businesses to put down strong foundations and grow, The Real Business Club have a strong alignment with our own values at innov8 so it has been a great pleasure to work with them and I look forward to an ongoing working relationship with them. We gave their logo and visual style a crisp refresh and redesigned their website with the user experience in mind.

please teach me how to maximise my website.

"I manage my own website, but am unhappy with how it is performing in the organic search listings. I need it to bring me more leads by appearing in front of my ideal client at the right time."

"I've been stung before when it comes to SEO and am looking for an honest, reliable person to show me how to optimize my website properly."

"I want to maximize my website in a powerful and Google-friendly way – without being left to wonder what just happened."
