Well, If you tried to reach my site for the past several weeks, you would have noticed it was under going a “Renovation” in the summer and was unavailable to the public. All that was visible was a landing page where I collected emails from those interested in launch. I was happy with the amount of interest, thank you, thank you!
Well my friends, Hello Misha is back online with a brand new face lift including a newly designed (by me) website and expanded services to help small business owners .
If you’re a designer, you most likely understand how designing for yourself is almost next to impossible. With constant delays, set backs, changing your mind and always thinking something is “off”, we tend to take some time to hit that “publish” button and release our online home to the world.
The feel then need to make this change was the face that I wanted to expose one of my passions I have hidden for a while. When I say hidden, I mean I only shared and talk about this passion to close friends and family. I never spoke much, or if at all, about it across my social media and website. The passion of design. Maybe you have guessed it before that it was my thing. With the way im anal about how my Instagram feed and photo edits looks, The way i can fall in love with the look of a font, or the way I’ve expressed my love for interior design. If you’ve followed me for the past year before I went “under construction” I was blogging about lifestyle, home decor, self care, beauty and travel. I also had a small shop with digital goods for bloggers, mothers and those with the active lifestyle. Here and there I posted about managing, starting and building your business but I wanted to do more.
I have the best support outside of my business and they are the biggest reason I decided to elevate my business further and expand my wisdom and talent. Before I was just providing education, tips and inspiration. Something I enjoy and still enjoy and continue to do here on Hello Misha. But I wanted to be able to also serve people. What kind of people? Small business owners, photographers, bloggers, coaches, people in the restaurant, beauty and wellness industry, etc. People I align most with. With design being a passion, I wanted to somehow make it a way I serve others and bring it into my business and I’m glad I took this route.
After research, I found and got involved with a community of other people starting or elevating their business in graphic, branding and web design. I found this is something I have actually done for friends and family and have always enjoyed designing my own website. Thats when I immediately thought of turning Hello Misha into a design studio, shutting down my website for a complete makeover and refining my social platforms. It took blood, sweat and tears but here we are and I couldn’t be happier!
I thought, why not give MY business a facelift? I quietly gave my brand and logo a complete do over. I am SO happy with the results and feel these new designs aligns with me much better. Although my previous logo and style was cute, I wanted more minimal and modern. Ive gotten so many compliments on my sub marks from people who have noticed the change before I said anything, so that felt really good.
I also had my website down for weeks to give it a complete makeover. Using custom CSS, plugins and GORGEOUS elements and kits from squaremuse, I designed my new online home with ease.
Ive expanded the services I provide to better support and help my audience. After receiving numerous inquiries of things I didn’t offer (but had the skill, chance or opportunity to) I decided to use my natural talents to help my audience in branding and web design. Something I’m strong and confident in and something my audience loves.
I love to write and I was excited to expand my blog menu. After expanding my services, I thought it made sense to also add relevant topics.
New topics: Branding & Design, Squarespace, Social media & Business.
This was over due. Way before I decided to rebrand. I had drafts in my shop and products waiting to be added. I finally got around to doing things I was putting off and launched my shop with a few things. It’s not much now but I will be expanding my inventory greatly, and soon too. You can preview here.
Often here and there I find people are interested in what I use and what can be used to help manage your business. I’ve curated a page that has pretty much from everything i use to run my business to suggestions for when you need to outsource. Check it out here.
Psst, Use my code; HELLOMISHA at squaremuse for a discount on their gorgeous features and templates for Squarespace websites.
I’ve had a lot of referrals and I wanted a way to show my appreciation for those who speak my name. That’s why I came up with a referral program that rewards both the person who refers and the potential client that inquires. You can learn more here.
And that’s it! With this new expand and design, I cant wait for the journey of Hello Misha Design Studio!
