I decided to re-design my business cards this week. This led to a re-designed logo. Which I think is actually rather wonderful, for the small amount of time I spent on it. Then this (and a wonderful design release from Tonic Site Shop) led to a re-visitation of my “I have to have something up” website in which I asked myself for the first time not “what would Making Brands Happen want” or “what would Jose Villa want?” or “what would Elizabeth Messina want?”, but instead “what would Kelly Sauer want?”
And Kelly Sauer is having some interesting issues defining what she wants. On the one hand, stepping out of everyone else’s shoes and firmly into my own is very empowering. On the other, it’s a recipe for flipped-out crazy. I am my own worst critic, and my photo files, while they’re all backed up, are quite disorganized. My portfolio is, at best, incoherent. So making a new site is… wow.
So I take some new photos. And I make spring-cleaning resolutions that must needs be carried out next week. And then I plan a trip out of town for the weekend to get some distance and perspective. Or something. And I keep walking, even though I really, really, REALLY want to run, to keep up with everybody else.
But if anybody feels like commenting, I learn about myself through what other people say about me. I’d love to know what you all think Kelly Sauer would do about a web design. It’s different being a style in my own right…
(Also? My macro lens, plus a little bit of sunlight, plus one big dried hydrangea that kept its color – it’s all a recipe for a Very Sweet Little Shoot. I am contemplating creating a “blossoms” gallery when I launch my new site. Just to justify my constant flower-chasing.)
