Getting graphic with SG Creations

1. What made you decide to start SG Creations?
I started making graphics as a hobby for myself and friends. I've been doing my own website and newsletters for years. After receiving many inquiring about my services, I decided to do it as a part-time business.

2.How long have you been doing it?
SG Creations became official this past fall.

3.What types of services do you offer?
I create book trailers, websites, book banners (animated & non-animated), advertising banners (animated and non-animated), logos, etc.

4.Who are your clients?
My clients are other authors, publicists, and business owners.

5.What is the most rewarding aspect of your business?
Creating something from scratch and having the customer satisified in the end has been the most rewarding aspect of the business.

6.What has been the most difficult?
It can be difficult when creating images because you're starting with a blank canvas.

7.What has bought you the most joy?
Being able to expand my hobby into a business has brought me the most joy.

8.How do you promote your services?
In the past, my services have been promoted via word of mouth and a tag line at the end of my emails.

9.What do you see people do that drives you crazy? I try not to let what others do affect me too much.

10.Who would you love to work with? Creative people. Too many to name.

11.Who are your mentors?
When it comes to graphics, my mentor would be Kandie Delley. We tend to bounce ideas off each other and she did my banner for The Lip Gloss Chronicles website.

12.What makes your business or service, stand out from the rest?

I cater my services to my clients needs and budget.

13.Are you adding any future services to your business?
None at this time.

14.Do you have a staff or is it all you?
It's all me.

15.What do you want people to know about you?
Overall, I love doing anything within the creative field: writing and designing graphic images.

16.What do you want people to know about your business? I created my business because as an author who is on a budget, I realize others are too. I wanted to offer services that would give the person a good product but at a fraction of the cost.

17.When you have completed a project, how do you celebrate? I usually have another project lined up, so there's no time for an official celebration.

18.What has been the most surprising thing you’ve learned from your business? The most surprising thing is that it has grown just within the last six months.

19.Would you change anything about your journey? I would have taken more graphic classes.

20.Do you have any advice for people in business? Yes, make sure you are doing something that you enjoy doing.

21.Success leaves clues, whose clues did you follow? Kandie Delley has offerred some great advice and thanks to her, I didn't have to go through certain pitfalls.

22.What have you realized about yourself since doing this business? I learned that I love doing creative things--whether it's writing or designing.
