Art with Katie and Glogirly

It’s my first Art Walk Thursday ever.  So this should be special.  Of course, that means I can’t feature the Woman as well, we all know about her. I thought that seeing Katie is now having a great promo for her new business, Glogirly Design, that I’d feature her.

As you know Katie is having a contest on her blog with a variety of give aways.  I asked how much was being given away and Katie added everything up on her toes and toes and said, “The total value of all the graphics and design services we are giving away this week is $380.  This includes Friday’s GRAND PRIZE, a Blog AND Facebook Makeover.  In addition, we are also giving away a few pieces of official GLOGIRLY swag valued at $50! ” I’m impressed she has so many toes. Wow.  So get entering, right?

So, of course, “Design” is a big word.  What are Glogirly and Katie love doing most? “I love bringing ideas to life visually.  I love it when someone sees what THEIR idea can look like and the only word they can find is , WOW!.”

   Glogirly added, “I love helping people to brand their online identity.  Whether it’s a serious business of a fun hobby, it’s a reflection of YOU.  And our first impressions are always visual ones…More specifically, I really enjoy creating blog headers, logos and coordinating profile avatars, as well as tweaking the blog template, palette and layout.  Those are the basic elements of a Blog Makeover. One of the most fun projects I worked on was the blog and book cover design for Meg S. Hart’s Housecat Confidential.  It’s still one of my favorites.”
   We looked over at Housecat Confidential and asked if they specialized in cat graphics and Katie told me that they would help anyone, cats, rats, ferrets, goats, dogs and even humans with their design needs.  In fact, Glogirly is prepared to help with blog headers and backgrounds, Facebook pages, book covers, Special Celebration graphics, Logos, Business Cards, Swag Design, YouTube Channel Background, Videos and Blog Pages.  Wow. That’s a lot.
   You may wonder why should Glogirly get your business?  She’s studied design at the University of Minnesota and have a B.S. in Applied Design & Graphic Design.  In addition she says, “When I was in college, Photoshop was a place you went to have your pictures developed in an hour.  So to keep current on design technology, I’ve taken advanced training in Photoshop, Illustrator & InDesign at an Adobe Certified School & Training Center.  But frankly, I’ve learned the most by just playing in the programs. Some people doodle on a post it. I do it on my laptop. “
   Katie, however, was a natural.  “Katie is a paws-on student of design.  My laptop is like a magnet to her.  From a very young age, as soon as I popped the lid open, she was right there by my side.  Conversely, as soon as I shut the lid, she’s a blurred flash of black & white fur. “
   So, is everyone ready to stroll on over there and see those great designs Katie has going on? Have you entered?  Check out the posts from this week–winning is just as easy as leaving a comment!
