Been wanting to force myself to write more, and share some of it publicly. Saw @fabianarbor do this recently so I’m going to start doing a monthly update on a few aspects of my life. So here’s my update for September 2023
If you’re new here, I’m building Flowstage, a 2-man design studio helping early stage tech startups.
Client 1: Diva Staking (ETH liquid staking with distributed validators)
We’ve been working with Diva since July, they’re an awesome client of ours.
In September we made them:
A new website for a new initiative
A 60s video to explain this initiative
Design for their booth in Istanbul
Handful of POAPs
Handful of social media posts
Client 2: [redacted] (web3 fashion brand)
We did two weeks of logo design explorations and then put the subscription on pause while they find another fashion hire to help their team
Twitter: Started posting consistently again halfway into the month, gained 421 followers and 2.5M impressions from a few posts that blew up. Don’t really have a follower/engagement goal here, just trying to get more exposure for potential clients to see us.
Instagram: Haven’t been posting much. Just posting on here so people I know can see what I’m working on
Working on a “Brand Market” for Flowstage, a catalog of premade logos to make the branding process easier, faster, and cheaper for early stage companies
Also occasionally making posters for fun
Currently doing volleyball specific training, and playing a few times a week
Shuttle sprints, Heavy leg work, Stretches, Explosiveness, Stamina, Knees, Shoulder, etc.
Also surfing roughly once a week
Get to 4 clients at 5k or 8k/mo
Launch Flowstage Brand Market (our productized service for branding)
Lots of social media content
Lots of poster design
Meet and talk with more creatives
