Rock Band Website Design

Here is a rock band website design for Colorado Springs band Hammerstadt. Sometimes if we haven’t put together the final images and videos for a website, I’ll pop in temporary media during the designing phase. These never end up in the final website though. Sometimes the client gets busy with other internal projects and isn’t able to get me everything I need upfront. So rather than waiting around to have all the pieces together, I’ll start designing the site with temporary images to get the ball rolling. Rock band website design by Hi-five Design.

Kratom Website Design

Here is a Kratom e-commerce website design for Nano K, a Colorado Springs based company that specializes in Kratom candy. Before I actually start building any website, I’ll design it in Adobe Illustrator. This will just be the homepage, but will give the client an idea of how the rest of the site will look. This particular site is a full e-commerce site that will be built in Shopify. If you’re looking to build an ecommerce website, Shopify is an amazing platform that makes things run flawlessly. I highly recommend them. Kratom e-commerce website designed by Hi-five Design.

Starting a Business? Got a Plan of Action?

Are you starting a new business? Do you have a solid plan of action? You’d be surprised how many clients knock on my door wanting to spend money on a logo before they even have a basic business plan in place. If you’re new to business or entrepreneurship, know that it’s dire that you put together a simple plan of action (on paper). A business plan is basically a road map that explains the overview of your business model, your goals, and your marketing strategy to accomplish those goals. It doesn’t need to be thirty pages long. The simpler you can make it the better.

Don’t just shoot from the hip!

But without a business plan, you’re just shooting from the hip and hoping for the best. It’s important to get your ideas out on paper. Doing so allows you to visualize your business and fine-tune your ideas. A business plan will constantly evolve as you dive deeper into your business. Most of the time, even with experienced business owners, it can be trial and error and working out the kinks the first couple years. But know that the plan is not set in stone, which allows room for growth, errors, and necessary changes.

Write down your ideas and envision your goals

This is an opportunity to truly envision your goals, manifest your dreams, and take the necessary steps forward to make them a reality. So grab a pen and paper and start jotting down your ideas. Realistically, you should be able to put together a simple plan of action before you spend one dollar. If the plan seems reasonable and the numbers make sense, go for it. If not, go back to the drawing board until you get it right. Because if you’re not turning a profit, all you have is a really expensive hobby.
