Dos and Don’ts For Your Design Firm Blog

By Alissa Walker

h2w_walker_designblog2.png

DO put your blog on the homepage of your site. You want every visitor to know your latest and greatest, don’t you?

DON’T limit contributions to words—make videos, take pictures, do drawings. And post them to YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr.

DO use your own voice. A blog is by a person, about a person and for a person. So be personable.

DON’T be afraid to hype yourself. If you get stuck, pretend you’re spouting your accomplishments to your mom.

DO use Twitter to push your posts. Even if you don’t care a Tweet about microblogging.

DON’T talk smack about other designers. There are plenty of other places on the internet for that.

DO show us your workspace. Show us your company parties, even your desk (Hello Kitty toys included).

DON’T use stock photography. Ever.

Being process-aerodynamic is crucial. The way to be a jack-of-all-trades is to have the right tools in place so you can spend more time on the things you’re good at.
