Today marks a special day: I’ve launched my new website: Alyssa Yuhas Creative!
I’m really excited to share it with you, as I’ve been working on it for a while now. Isn’t that always the case with personal projects? They take FOR-EVER to complete. But, it’s finally out there. No turning back now!
Here are a few shout-outs to TWO very important people in this process:
I was very thankful to have Shane, my amazing patient husband, shoot my portfolio and work with my crazy brain on conceptually shooting my work. I wanted to have a bit of fun interacting with my portfolio, especially my magazine work. We were really in sync on this project – he could totally visualize what I was trying to explain. I am so spoiled to have a husband that takes what I want and runs with it. THANK YOU!
I was also lucky to work with my copywriter, Liz, on this website. I wasn’t only going to work at making my new site pretty but it was important to me to have care and consideration for the words. She completely took my vision and wrote it out for me. She gave me a language and refined my ramblings. I am so excited when art and copy really come together, because I couldn’t have created this site without her. Through working with her, I had the opportunity to work on my own brand language and create a messaging guide – as a result, I will begin implementing this process with new brand clients. It’s such an important part of your brand, that is very often overlooked. Visuals are important (clearly!), but developing a complete package of brand visuals + language creates a cohesive, strong and mature brand.
Another fun thing with my new launch is the SHOP. I am almost ready to launch that space where I will be offering resources for creatives! I am getting a lot of emails and questions asking about the resources I use, about best design practice or where I get certain patterns/fonts/graphics/stock/etc – I’ll be able to share a lot of that really soon. Right now, we want to learn more about what YOU want and need. So stop by the SHOP page and fill out a little questionnaire.
I hope you will take a visit to my new home! There are a few more things coming up – but I’ll keep you updated here, on my blog (Yes! It’s true! I’m slowly starting to get back to blogging!), or on my email newsletter, you can sign up for it over in the sidebar.
ONE LAST THING: I’ve changed my social media to @ALYSSAYUHAS – keeping it consistent yo! But don’t worry welikewelove fans, we have big plans for that brand. It’s not going anywhere.
