My Graphic Design ‘hat’

Hashtags are unfathomably powerful things that I haven’t developed a full understanding of yet. I googled the meaning of ‘Hashtag’ yesterday. I’ve taken its purpose a little for granted until this point but I need to use them a lot now. I’m having to focus on Instagram and they are key in developing my audience and customer base. I’m finding it a bit of a complex minefield.

I decided to write my blog about hashtags today but found myself quite distracted by the artwork I made for it. I designed magazines for about nineteen years (which I loved) and then I stopped about eight years ago. I didn’t do much design work for years due to my family and other commitments but because of my recent project I’ve started designing again and its been lovely to get back to it. I find that making and communicating something visual using colours, images, symbols and words, is really quite rewarding.

My name's Anna and I decided to write a blog following an accident last year. I will never regain the full use of my right hand and an operation led to additional, ongoing complications. This is about my struggles following the accident and the challenges of trying to save the use I still have in my hand. It’s a story about my product and why it appeared in my head one day because of my traumatic experiences. How I took that positive vision and worked towards bringing it to life. The challenges of putting it together and getting it to the market whilst still undergoing debilitating, ongoing treatment. It's a journey you can share with me. I'm not there yet...
