Friday Links : Rethink, Redesign, and Renew

This week we’re focusing on new personal stories, new updates, new designs, and new strategies. It’s always good to start fresh and rethink, redesign and renew our minds especially with the new season coming up in a little over a month.

One  |  If you’re a part of the design world (or even if you’re not) you’ve probably heard of Canva. Have you ever wondered how it all started? Melanie Perkins, (CEO + Co-Founder of Canva) discusses her entrepreneurial journey and the inspiration behind Canva.

Two  |  Feel like your logo designs just aren’t cutting it? Here are 8 ways to push your designs further and take your process to the next level.

Three  | How often do you run data on your social media accounts? Your analytics are key to understanding what is working and what’s not. Here are 10 experiments you can run yourself to find out more about your analytics.

Four | Nadia Hassan, a pattern designer located right here in GSO, says: “Designing is what makes me feel like I’m growing and learning. It’s not something that happens overnight. It does involve a lot of sacrifice.” More on her ‘Made In Greensboro’ story here.

Five | Instagram came out with a new look this week (and caused the Internet to freak out). The new update puts more focus on photos and videos without changing how you navigate the app. Hear from the Insta team themselves as to why + how they updated the app. What are your thoughts?

Change can be good or bad, but you’ll never know until you try! We’re hoping you’ve learned something new and are open to trying something new for your business. Until next week, have a great weekend!
