Tomorrow Is The First Of August
Tomorrow is the 1st of August, 2020 – I am writing this on the evening of one of the hottest days so far this year. There have been a couple of thunder claps to clear the air, a welcome deluge and I am now comfy in my pyjamas. Kathryn is watching a comedy programme in the other room and there is a wholesome air of tranquility throughout my place – I am happy.
A ‘good’ July always reminds me of the never-ending summers I experienced when I was growing up in Norfolk, on a farm. Hence my Bullrush photo, above.
I will now try and tell you what I have been doing in July as a designer.
As mentioned in a previous post HERE I have designed myself a new logo – I am very happy with this; off the back of this work I have been commissioned to design a couple of logos so it is already working out.
Plus, it says what I want to say about the business.
I opened an Etsy store to sell doodles on. Sales are slow but then there is a global recession looming. If you want to see some of the stuff I have made, have a look on the Drew’s A Designer Etsy Store HERE.
New Instagram Hashtag Research!
I am now in a position to offer Instagram Hashtag Research – I have the appropriate software and I am offering it to my clients as a tester. If all goes well I hope to make Marketing moves. However, my core skills are in design and I firmly believe that I do not want to spread myself too thin. You can read the Blog post about Instagram Hashtag Research HERE.
I am one of the founders of Harrogate Community Radio – I have helped play a small role in the station for the conception of it. We have our first birthday on Yorkshire Day, the first of August; that’s tomorrow! I am pleased that we have lasted that long – and slightly shocked!
As one of the team, I am the one who helps with new technology. I built an App for the station to stream the broadcast using your phone. If you search for “Harrogate Community Radio” on your phone’s app store you should come across something….
- iOS is all good to go – you will be able to find the app on the Apple App Store (for iPhones and iPads) HERE.
- Google Play have a good system in place – if you have an Android then you will need to head HERE to get the station’s free app.
