super useful links!

These are some sites that I have stumbled upon which can help make things a bit easier. They might help you get your business seen 🙂

FAV.ICO

These little images are for making the little preview image on browser tabs. You’ll notice mine it s little star. This is also used as an icon if people save your website on their home page or even phone screens. 

This website allows you to quickly convert your logo files into fav.ico files to multiple uses.

QR CODE

This is almost essential these days, great for putting on posters, banners and flyers so that people can get to your website or socials quickly.

This is my fav site because it’s super easy to use. I download the JPG and then image trace it in Illustrator so that I can change the colours or add a logo centre myself.

LINK TREE

My first preference is to make your own on your website because it means all your visitors go to your site first before going somewhere else. But if you don’t have the skills to make one on your own website then Link Tree is the answer for you. 

These pages are great so that people can quickly get a list of your websites and social media pages. And you can always updated the content on them to stay up to date no matter when they go to the link.

INKSCAPE

I know it seems easier to make logos on Canva, but don’t do it. It can’t be scaled, it can’t be trademarked and it LOOKS like it was made in Canva. If you really want to DIY a logo then download this open source vector program and use the pen tool to create it. 

It’s a bit of a learning curve but it will be so much better than a raster logo that looks like everyone else’s.

COOLORS

By far the most fun you can have with making a colour palette! Limited features as a free account but totally usable, $5 a month is barely anything if you want to get rid of the ads and save your palettes.

ADOBE CONTRAST CHECK

This website is great for checking accessibility for colours. I used the contrast checker and also the colour blindness tests to make my colour palettes better suited for the masses.
