  • The Branding Board Template has been created in Adobe Illustrator. Use your creative license to make it your own.

  • All of the Swipe Files are available for edits. I have duplicates, so do not be afraid to save it to your own drive with revisions. Swipe Files included are:
    1. FOLLOW-UP EMAILS
    2. TERMINATING THE CONTRACT
    3. VAGUE CLIENTS
    4. THE NOT-SO POTENTIAL CLIENT
    5. THE ADD-ON’S AFTER THE DESIGN BRIEF CLIENT

  • The Fab Designer Profit Society Event Calendar has been created in Google Calendar. Transfer our events to your own google calendar so that you always know what is on the schedule.

  • Due to the extreme differences in timezones, I understand that there may be some conflicts. I am very sensitive to this fact and have put off scheduling because of this. That being said, a recording of zoom calls will be made available to those that are unable to attend and even to those that have attended, upon request.

  • Emails are being sent out on October 31, 2018 (today in U.S) with schedule links for our 1 on 1 calls. I am making these 1 hour instead of 30 minutes. If you would like to split these up into (2) 30 minute sessions, you can choose that in the scheduler.

  • There are two mood board styles in two different formats. I am having difficulty with the sharing in Canva, but I am sharing a more artsy mood board that you can edit freely…if you are able. If not, use it as an example to model your own mood board in that style. The Indesign file is available for those with the Adobe Creative Suite. I love both of these, but you have creative license to create your own style. It is not a set in stone format. Some are even more free form. Go to Pinterest and type in mood board to see the other styles so you can choose a different one from what I have provided.

  • Have fun!
