    I get frustrated when I don’t recognize someone’s work because their branding is inconsistent! Font, color scheme, and overall graphic design are so important in branding. If you have great branding, then people will recognize your work at different venues and sites, and you’ll imprint yourself in their brain from repetition. That’s why I think branding is so important!

    So exciting! I try to do all my own branding but I struggle with building logos and such, I only have Gimp and most tutorials I find are for photo shop. I also struggle with html tweaks too (Sarah at has some great tutorials tho!) Heather has a great point too, cohesiveness is so important, but can be so difficult to achieve.
