  • Please Just Stop Doing And Asking For Free Work. Please.

    I shouldn’t have to start this by explaining that actual adjectives for the word “professional” are “paid” and “salaried”. If you’re selling yourself as a professional, don’t negate your title by completing work for free. And if you’re searching for a PROFESSIONAL to complete creative work for you, you shouldn’t have to be asked to…

  • Lines On Lines On Lines

    You know when you see someone else’s symmetrical, equal-distanced, perfectly lined design and you silently curse them to the eternal fires of hell for all eternity for being so damn great? Yeah, I’ve been there too. Well, what would you say if I told you there was a way to create your own symmetrical, equal-distanced,…

  • Advice For Future Employees

    An open letter to my future employees. We’ve had a number of employees at You&Me. Each one has left their mark on us and the company. And this is how it should be. I’d like to believe that as much as an employee has learnt from us during their time here, we have learnt just…

  • The Rise of Augmented Reality

    A new year, a new list of virtual advancements we’re going to have to start getting used to. Amongst the plethora of technological advances heading our way in 2018, the idea of augmented reality (AR) appears to be one of the more exciting. Unlike virtual reality, augmented reality is more useful and functional in our…

  • I’m Still Learning

    Being the child of a teacher has deeply instilled the value of knowledge in me for as long as I can remember. My reading books in my spare time was encouraged, and going to varsity after high school was a given. I still remember our weekly trips to the library, and look back on those…

  • AN ODE TO OLD SCHOOL

    When I sat down to write this blog post I was in a very cheeky mood. So cheeky in fact, that instead of writing the usual post I took the opportunity to shake things up and discuss the two great passions of my life – old school music and drawing. My love for both stirred…

  • Keeping Up With The Podcasts

    Owning and running a creative business has its perks. Being surrounded by like-minded creative people is what makes me get up in the morning. Being able to have a conversation with someone that can articulate their view on the world is a breath of fresh air, even if their view on the world seems to…

  • Kindness in Business

    Why does being a businesswoman or a boss govern the level of kindness we’re “professionally” permitted to give to those we work with? One can’t be blind to the fact that all people with whom we interact have lives, and sometimes those lives go through pretty shitty patches. Being there for a friend or even…

  • An Illustration A Day Keeps The Demons Away

    When life gets rough we all need an outlet. Some of us turn to music, some of us turn to exercise, but some lucky few of us get to turn to illustration.   Illustration empowers the imagination; it drives your creativity and transports you to a place of almost hypnotic concentration. Many creatives have abstract…

  • Running Your Own Business Is Not For Sissies

    Life has taught me many lessons throughout my 28 years on this Earth. People close to me have taught me different things over those years too, but I have truly learnt the most important lessons from running my own company. Lessons not only about “how not to be a shitty business woman”, but important lessons…
