The second Brand Design Kit is the Luna kit and it's all about celestial beauty. I've combined hand drawn moons, suns and stars with beautiful handwritten fonts to create 21 distinctive brands. Today I'd like to share nine of those fonts with you.
Do you know that crippling feeling of being suffocated by your to do list? If you are a creative girl running your own business you know exactly what I’m talking about — the tightness in your chest, when you want to film that video, write that article, paint the illustration for that client, organize your Pinterest boards, redesign your homepage, and create content for the e-course you’re launching this summer... Oh, and have a dinner date with your beau at the end of the day, of course.
It’s an interesting state to be in – you want to do everything, today, all at once and end up binge watching Grey’s Anatomy with a huge bowl of air-popped popcorn instead. I call it my chaos procrastination mode. It’s often a sign of two things:
I can very well imagine what the beginning of your business journey feels and looks like: wild ideas flying around, gazillion things to be done, a to do list with the length of the Amazon river, and the suffocating feeling of having no time to do it all!

But first, let me ask you this: When was the last time you took an hour or so to analyze what’s working and what isn't in your business and made an informed intuitive decision about the direction you should take?

I’m in the middle of designing a Minimal Branding Kit for the Araminta sisters and today I’d like to share nine of the free fonts I’m using for it.

You are a creative pixie, there’s no doubt about it. You have an extremely curious mind and a heart that has room for a thousand blue wales and more. So when I say you are most likely interested in 371 things at this very moment and you’d love to explore at least half of them, I’m being conservative in my estimate.
Let’s say you’ve decided to focus your business on being a copywriter full time. You got your one-woman-shop opened and off the ground, got your first clients, and all seemed right with the world for a time. And then an ache appeared, right next to your heart. It felt as if you’ve pulled a muscle and it made you restless. You started having the nagging feeling of something being incomplete — you were practically just like that puzzle of a beautiful German castle with a piece missing right in the middle of it, by one of the towers.
What you’re experiencing is what I call the “I want to do it all right now” syndrome. Every multipassionate gal on the planet who aspired to run her own business gets it at some point. And that’s OK.
2017 has been (and still is) my year of learning. I paid good money for a couple of amazing courses and devoured a bunch of books that changed the way I do business and my view on success, money, creative work and being an online entrepreneur.
