BECAUSE WE HAD A POWER OUTAGE…

Are you working on a side project, planning for it to be your full time gig?
Do you know how to turn a side hustle into enough money or more than you are making at your full-time job?
Do you want to work for yourself?
Do you know how to niche down, how to find your sweet spot within our industry?
Have you had trouble finding clients or marketing yourself?

If you answered yes then this week is going to answer your questions. This week launches Love on Designers with a designer I admire and have known for a long time. I have such respect for his process, craft, and artistry. This week’s guest is Jason Carne. What a better way to give some love and hope for the first week of Love on Designers Month.

Or listen here:


Love on Designers is a way for us to love on, thank and appreciate the people who have helped us get where we are. We also spend time this month reaching out to encourage people around us who are starting out or getting their feet wet and may need some encouragement and love.

Kim Panella and I created this month focusing on reaching out, up, back, and in three years ago to give back to our industry.

WEEK 1 is ENERGIZE
Take someone to coffee, bring someone a coffee or soda or red bull. Be positive energy for others in meetings this week. Kim and I are creating some great cards again and maybe you will create one or two of your own this month. We would love to see what you make that is inspired from the love on designers theme.

Here are the prompts for this week, try and do one of these this week. Snap a photo and use the hashtag #loveondesigners when you post it.

Bring coffee or other energizing snack or beverage to a friend or colleague at their office. Meet someone for an energizing lunch or beverage break. Pay for a stranger’s coffee. Post an energizing quote and tag a friend who could use some energizing (remember to use the #loveondesigners tag)

If this topic interests you or maybe you have some of your own questions then tune in LIVE on WED, Feb 10 at 2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT / 7:30pm GMT

• Create a post and share an encouraging word on social media specifically to someone who needs a lift. Tag them and use the hashtag #loveondesigners
• Send an old fashioned letter to someone who you know who has been killing it in our industry.
• Direct message someone and let them know you have seen their work and know how much time and energy they have been putting into it and it isn’t going unnoticed.

Week 3: RECHARGE

This is a week for you, so focus on you and giving you what you need this week. Shoot a picture and use the hashtag #loveondesigners this week and let us know how you are taking care of yourself this week.

Do something that refuels you, take a picture and use the #loveondesigners.

Week 4: CONNECT

This week we want you to reach out to someone you don’t know and tell them how their work / life has inspired you.

• Create a Social Media post and tag them (and us) telling them how they have inspired or helped you.
• Reach out to a mentor and let them know how much they have meant to you.
• Send a card to someone you have looked up to, to their office. Do a little digging and find the address. And craft an incredible envelope to go with the card.

I hope you will join us as we lift up the design community this month and spread the love.
