Mayhem Studios Interviewed on Inspiredology

I was lucky enough to be interview by Chad Mueller, owner of Inspiredology, an awesome website about inspiration for all things design.

Chad asked me a few fun and interesting questions like:

+ Where do you look for sources of inspiration?
+ What is your favourite aspect of logo design?
+ Who do you look up to in your field?
+ How has using Twitter helped the popularity of you?
+ What sort of social media tools have you found most successful?
+ What advice would you give to someone looking to specialize?

Head on over to Inspiredology, and read my interview to find out a little more about me.

How to Brand Yourself with a Twitter Background

I recently wrote an article for Twitter Backgrounds Gallery website, "How to Brand Yourself with a Twitter Background."

In the article, I talk about when marketing and branding yourself, you want all pieces to look similar and cohesive: logo, business cards, letterhead, envelope, website, brochure, media kit, marketing materials, signage, etc.

And how Twitter profile backgrounds is another tool in helping to market and promote yourself. The background should match your existing brand or look. Twitter backgrounds get noticed if they’re: unique, fresh and stands out from the crowd.

I also go into topics about

+ What size should the Twitter background be?
+ Type of Twitter Designs
+ Tile or not to tile
+ Contrast and readability

The article is up on Twitter Backgrounds Gallery website now. You can read the full article HERE.
