Ready, Set, Launch!

Happy New Year!

2013 was an exciting year for Three Feathers Design. After I completed the Women's Economic Ventures Self-Employment Training and devising a business plan, 3FD has officially opened it's doors for business!

3FD is a Santa Barbara based graphic design studio dedicated to helping start-up and newly formed businesses hit the ground running. It aims to help bridge the gap between communication and design by using a variety of techniques to achieve results based on 3FD’s understanding of color, typography, photography animation, layout and media.

This blog, Design for Business, will be a platform for me to share what I have learned while starting a new business, as well as info on graphic design basics that business owners can use to help attract new clients. My hope is that I can empower business owners to make smart design choices that will positively affect the growth of their company.... Stay tuned! 

I would also like to take a moment to thank my family and friends for all of their support while I took a leap of faith and started my own business. Especially Andrew, my husband, for his unwavering encouragement and willingness to cheer me on.

I look forward to hearing about your business ventures and may 2014 be a happy, healthy and successful year.
