In this Information Age, and its impact on the ever-evolving global economy, change is now the norm for business. But, despite its presence everywhere, change does not come easy. Companies sometimes fail to make critical reforms due to an ingrained resistance to change.
The battle between qualifications and experience has played out in the business arena for some time. I have met many persons who, with an immense amount of academic knowledge and qualifications, still struggle to secure employment. I am not sure if there is a clear answer to this age-old question, but there are good arguments on both sides.
You have been working hard, putting in long hours at the office and giving in to every demand from your boss, and you are still being passed over for a promotion. Being a loyal worker clearly is not enough to get you to the next career level, so what is a dedicated employee to do?
It's often said that people quit bosses, not jobs. A bad boss can make a good job miserable and a bad job unbearable. Beyond the negative impact on individual employees, ineffective managers can also cost companies tons of money in turnover and lost productivity.
Good service is critical to success in any business, especially in the hospitality sector.
Setbacks in business can provide lessons that generate long-term rewards in the future. We must accept that adversity happens to everyone at some point in life. Overcoming challenges is critical on the path to success, so dealing with them in a healthy manner is really important for entrepreneurs. Always remember that it is possible to bounce back from failure, and get back on track in no time, than to remain mired in misfortune. An entrepreneur is not defined by the number of times he or she fails, but what they learnt from those mistakes.
When it comes to employment, there is one ‘must have’ trait. Can you guess what it is? It is work ethic. Many job seekers struggle to understand that work ethic is more than just an innate mix of good family upbringing and personal qualities but, rather, a trait you can actually nurture. So, what does work ethic mean? Work ethic refers to a set of key moral values that guide individuals towards successfully completing their work in a formal environment.
Why entrepreneurship? While the journey to entrepreneurship is likely to be filled with sacrifices, obstacles and challenges, the reward for the same is far greater. With the right amount of knowledge and guidance, it is indeed possible for anyone to venture out into the world of entrepreneurship.
Does my business really need a website? The answer is: ‘Yes, it does’. If you are a small business owner, you have probably had someone tell you to get a website. But why should you? There are not many businesses that can survive without an Internet presence, and there is no reason not to have one.
Running your own business offers many perks. But deciding to start one is a leap of faith. It requires pushing beyond your comfort zone. If that idea excites you, then you may be ready to take the plunge and be the chief executive of your own company. It may require taking a few risk, but the possibility of significant rewards is huge. If you are not yet convinced, here are some of the best reasons for starting your own business.
It is not unusual for business owners to feel stuck at times, especially if sales are declining, and you feel like you are in a rut.
Graphic design is more than just aesthetics; it is a form of communication between your business and your audience. Businesses use graphics at every stage of the marketing process to inform, engage and eventually persuade prospective customers to make a purchase or take action.
MARKETERS have known this for a while: A well-suited image makes for a successful campaign. But how do images really work their magic? And how can you exploit the potential of visuals in a digital space already cluttered with countless images?
Creative people are those who imagine the possibilities and wonders of the world. They can immerse themselves in imagination and fantasy, yet remain grounded enough to turn their dreams into reality. They are often described as dreamers, but that does not mean they live with their heads in the clouds. Art must be creative as it is a product of our imagination. We can use art as an expression of our feelings, emotions and selves.
PNG (portable network graphic) is a type of image file that is often favoured in web design and creative projects involving Photoshop or similar software. It is a type of file that allows an object to be placed into software with a clear background or as a partially transparent image, making it especially useful when creating a graphic from multiple layers. PNG is one of my favourite image files.
Website design is just another way businesses can show their credibility to customers. Having a beautiful website does not always ensure it will be seen, though. In order for a website to show up in the search results, search engines have to know what your website is about.
Motion graphics can be used in pretty much any business. They can simplify storytelling, help guide users to better understand products and services, and can help pack massive amounts of information into bite-size, comprehensive videos.
Adobe Premiere Pro is the heavy-duty hitter that can be used for anything from short films to feature films. I think you would be hard-pressed to know a creative who has not heard of Adobe Premiere Pro. It is one of Adobe’s flagship programs that likely sits just behind Photoshop in terms of popularity. Adobe is to graphics and video what Microsoft is to data.
Some marketing executives are caught in the conundrum of trying to decide whether to embark on a video advertising campaign or wondering why they are not already doing it.
If you are a designer working behind a computer, there will always be the need for a large storage bin to place bits and pieces of edited and unedited photos plus data in. The need for large storage can never be evaded. Super high resolution files that are typical of graphic design can consume pretty large amounts of data. Moreover, you may have started arranging a portfolio of records, and suddenly realise that more storage space is required.
Learning about new graphical and educational techniques should not be a chore but, rather, a process that students and teachers should grasp, understand and implement.
With graphic design becoming increasingly more accessible as a career, breaking the rules could be viewed by some as forward-thinking. Nonetheless, most newcomers to the profession are unaware of certain rules, especially the ones that are important and should never be broken. By not following these rules, the end result can be visually jarring, resulting in your target audience losing trust in your ability or competence.
I NEED the design today? Really…

In the past, research showed the average person spent 84 minutes or more per day watching online videos, and this is only expected to increase in 2021.

Does art really inspire the imagination? If you were to sit in the middle of a white room with no wall art and furniture, would you feel inspired? Well-placed decorations and carefully chosen art pieces are a catalyst for conversation and internal musings.
