Blogging isn’t as simple as many may think. A blog isn’t just a website, it’s a labour of love, a career, a brand. For those like me who blog for a living, every single element of their website has to showcase their strengths and potential. The defintion of a brand is ‘a type of product manufactured by a particular company under a particular name’, for bloggers, the blog on which they create and publish content is their brand.
Some bloggers branch out and create online shops within their blogs, others write books and many sell courses and resources. A blog that begins as a small seed can and will blossom into something wonderful with the enough passion and attention to detail. I know from personal experience that creating and designing a brand that gets noticed requires hard work and dedication, but thankfully, with the help of graphic design tools and design bundles, designing the graphic elements of your brand is a breeze.
The best thing about graphic design is having the ability to make your vision come alive. What starts as an idea quickly becomes a visual representation of who you are and what you represent. But what if you don’t know where to start? What if you need help with your vision? That’s where design bundles step in to save the day.
Design bundles don’t do all of the work for you, and you’ll need to search to find the bundle that is right for you. Once you’ve found what you need, you’ll be armed with the tools to personalise, tweak and create the look you want to achieve for your brand. You can use what you create however you wish, on social media, as a website header or logo or even on products you intend to sell on your website.
For example, if you want to sell mugs to promote your business, you can purchase a mug mockup and create a brand logo to display on the mugs. It’s incredibly easy to feel lost when choosing the elements that will make up your brand, these days there are so many possibilities and options that making something entirely your own can be overwhelming.
Design bundles simplify brand building, making it easy for you to achieve the look you desire before focusing on the many other elements of website creation and maintenence. Design bundles often give you the push you need to make your dreams a reality, each one is a helping hand, a little digital cheerleader ready and waiting to be customised into something truly brilliant. So what are you waiting for?
I use mockups in nearly every graphic element of this blog, everything from the header and logo to the Pinterest image began as a group of designs that I encorporated and tweaked until I was happy with the result. Each element provides a graphic consistency that my readers have become familiar with, they know what to expect, they know my brand and they take notice. My brand is unique, it stands out within a sea of very similar brands/websites and has become something that I am extremely proud of. If this is what you are trying to achieve, then take a look at a design marketplace. With a little imagination and creativity, the possibilities are endless.
