Today I would like to share my thoughts and a sneak peek at Stampington & Company's Somerset Studio newest publication Where Women Create BUSINESS. As with all of Somerset Studio's publications this one is simply lovely, well designed and inspiring. I love that this publication is more than a magazine but a guide for female professional and novice artist to learn business lessons, tips and how to make their business dreams a reality. I enjoyed reading the featured articles included in the inaugural issue. Each article offers amazing insight on what has worked for great business women from a myriad of backgrounds. I enjoyed seeing that diversity especially the blogging column by Holly Becker.
Above is a glimpse into Amy Butler's space; her personal advice on maintaing a personal + business partnership are awesome! Below are a few checkpoints that spoke to me most:
- honesty is the best policy
- be good listeners and be respectful of each other's opinions and ideas
- have set working hours, which is especially important if you work from home
- be willing to change, adapt and evolve
The photography is this magazine is art alone, I love the flow of articles and images. I am always drawn to photography (love the story and connection that a photo conveys) as I am a very visual person The full page photos and mixture of photo sizes are a perfect balance with the articles in each feature. The above photo collage is a peek into Design* Lab by ddg.
I learned a lot from this magazine and look forward to buying the next issue. Where Women Create BUSINESS can be purchased at most bookstores or online at stampington.com.
Disclosure: I was sent a free copy of this magazine to review. However the opinions expressed in this post are entirely my own.
