How Social Media helped me find a Graphic Designer

About 4 months ago I signed up for Nikki Pilkington’s 30 Day Blog Challenge, as a complete novice and new comer to blogging and Social Media.  I found the challenge an excellent resource and introduction to blogging.

The support and advice from fellow bloggers and facebook users  is something I have written about in a  previous posts, (A Vote of Thanks). It is fantatic to have an on-line group who will answer my silliest questions without me feeling silly!

Via the 30 Day Challenge group set up by Nikki,  I have ‘met’ Helen Bogun who runs Helz-Design, a graphic design company based in Berlin, for our German friends.  Recently I asked Helen if she would be able to design something for our Christmas website…

we LOVE it.  Look at all the work that went into cutting around the details in our filigree jewellery. A stunning tree and lovely bit of graphic design from Helen.  We will be visiting family in Berlin in February and look forward to meeting Helen as well, our first live social media meeting, fun!

Working with Helen was so easy, she gave me an idea of when the work would be ready, answered all my emails very promptly and the work was ready on time and very reasonably priced.  What more could we want from people we are working with?  If you’re looking for a graphic designer and unsure where to start I would like to take this chance to recommend Helz-Design, drop her an email; I know she would love to hear from you and help you with your project.

      You are so welcome, it was great to ‘meet’ you and be able to work so easily (& fun) together. The Christmas website didn’t quite make it… so have ordered some our first ever Seba Dizajn Christmas cards with your design, can’t wait for them to arrive and then to share your work with our lovely customers via the post!
      Looking forward to Feb. meeting! Hope you have a great weekend.

        hopefully the cards will be fine – although i am doing this job for 20 years now i am still excited when something from the printing shop arrives 🙂
