This morning I was accepted to be a part of the Designed.org mentorship community. I’m eager to continue honing my coaching and mentorship skills, and focusing that work on under-represented groups within the design community.
Last week I did a day-long working session with copywriter and content specialist Angela Gaimari, who is also a good friend and long-time collaborator. In addition to some very peaceful moments in her hometown of Truro, Massachusetts, we took a hard look at each others’ sites—I at her design and she at my copy. As my site is currently undergoing big changes, she took a high level approach to the content, namely my coaching service.
I’m traveling to Sonoma Thursday for Memorial Day Weekend, then spending a week with my good friend Robert O’Shaughnessy, who has a marketing agency supporting both the real estate (New Ground Agency) and cannabis (Higher Ground Agency) industries. While there, I’ll work to finalize my plan for the part-time Visual Design (Jun 4 – Jul 30) and UX Design (Jun 17 – Aug 26) courses I’m teaching with General Assembly Boston starting in June. I’d like to integrate the two courses meaningfully, similar to how they are integrated in real life.
