Designing for yourself can be intimidating, but it doesn’t have to be. All you need is the right tools and a little bit of know how.

There are 3 things you need to DIY your design:

A Design Style

To get started, you need a basic style to keep your designs consistent. This does not have to be complicated, all you really need are some basic fonts and colors, and a simple-to-design text logo. I can give you tips to get you going.

Stay tuned for my free design style series.

Design Principles

It’s not as difficult as you think to give your designs a professional look. All you really need are some basic principles, and these are principles that anyone can learn and apply. Not a designer? No problem! I’ve got the basics for you.

Design Software

You can use any software you’re comfortable with, whether it’s online tools like Canva or Picmonkey, or pro tools like Photoshop or InDesign. I happen to teach InDesign, and it’s actually easier to learn than you may think!
