Over the past week, I’ve really been trying to solidify consistency in my personal brand. I’m focused on moving forward with “Learn.Build.Teach” which, I think, does a great job of summarizing my goals. There are so many things that go into having a good brand: fonts, colors, graphics, etc, and I decided to start with a YouTube banner.
All of that said, one of my biggest weaknesses has always been design. As crazy as it sounds, I simply don’t know how to make things pretty. It’s funny, I’m great at building something if someone gives me a design before hand, but if you tell me to come up with the design myself…it gets rough.
So, knowing that I needed some help to really make the progress I’m hoping for, I reached out to Sep. Sep was a student at Pace University in NYC who I worked closely with while at Microsoft. He has an amazing eye for design and has been my go to guy for any design advice. I really wanted to get some templates/graphics for my YouTube channel, so I did some research and sent him some rough ideas of what I was looking for. He came back with updates to make everything looker cleaner, more modern, and just more appealing 🙂 If you want to learn more about Sep and check out his work, take a look at his website.
Well, I’m well on my way. I’ve got a new banner, templates for YouTube thumbnail, and transition images. I’m super excited!!!! Anyways, everybody take a good look at my new banner, and also check out my channel.
