Graphic Designer Morning Routine

Every weekday morning I wake up every at 5:00am to get a jump-start on my day. I love having this quiet time to myself and I spend about 90-mins for mindset work (meditation, reading, and journaling).

This helps me get in the right frame of mind before starting my day.

If you want to see my full morning routine, check out this video: Morning Routine For Entrepreneurs: How I Start My Day At 5 Am

After my morning mindset time, I get dressed for the day.

Design Work in My Home Studio

At 8am I head to work in my home office.

I break my week into different categories, depending on the day. Today is a Tuesday, which means it’s a “client day.”

Like I mentioned in my video: Time Management And Productivity Tips For Ambitious Entrepreneurs, I pre-plan and schedule all of my projects ahead of time. That means when I show up to work at 8:00am all I have to do is look at my calendar and know what I’m supposed to do.

Client Days

Tuesdays and Thursdays are my “client days.” These are the days that I work on my VIP client projects, take meetings, and do the bulk of “new” client work.

Today I’m focusing on 2 clients:

Brand Design Client: My client hired me to create the logo and visual brand identity for the rebrand of her photography business. Watch the video to see how I take her through my logo and branding design process.

VIP Design Client: I work with my VIP clients all year on various branding and design projects. We actually start with strategy, to grow their businesses and build authority in their niches. My VIP program is by invitation only, for clients who have already worked with me on branding and website design.

In the video I show how I’m designing an opt-in freebie (multi-page PDF) for one of my VIP clients.

How I got into Graphic Design

I get asked this question a lot. The truth is, when I started college (as a dance major!), I didn’t even know what graphic design was. It wasn’t until I started a wedding photography business back in 2009 that I stumbled upon the concept of ‘branding.’

I became obsessed with the concept of branding—and how it could transform my small business! That naturally lead to an interest in graphic design.

So I went back to college to finish my degree—this time graphic design. After graduation, I worked in a marketing firm for 1.5 years. Then I decided to go “full time entrepreneur” with my wedding photography (and now) brand design business.

Comment below—are you a graphic designer? I’d love to know how you got started, and what type of design you do!
