Yo! TGIF :) It's #fridayintroductions already again! This week has flown by. Hello new and old followers :) I'm Tierra Wilson, founder and creative director at Tierra Wilson & Co. #linkinbio to learn more about my company. I've survived a few hurricanes. My first big one was Andrew. I was too young to remember the devasation, but I will never forget the eye passing directly over us. I walked outside and the sky was so blue. Like nothing had ever happened. I thought the storm was over. I was so happy! No more hiding in hall way when we heard the trumpet'. I learned quickly that it was FAR from over. There were a few more hurricanes along the way, and then there was Katrina. I met my husband the weekend of Katrina. My soul mate. I didn't know that then. I remember meeting him and then heading home to ride the storm out with my family. Luckily Baton Rouge didn't get a direct hit, but our close neighbors New Orleans did. I spent 2 years volunteering after Katrina with my dad and uncle. We spent years helping displaced residents find housing, filling out FEMA applications, and more. As much as I loved helping, hurricane burnout began to set in. Next was Gustav. I got married the day before Gustav hit. My husband & I had finally had enough of the South, for many reasons, but hurricanes were definitely one of them. We sold everything & headed to Phoenix as Gustav hit, after the wedding, never looking back. The next few years I visited and watched as family and friends rebuilt year after year. As global warming intensified, storms began to feel like hurricanes and hurricanes felt like Armageddon. Last weekend, My husband and I celebrated our 10th year anniversary as we watched hurricane Harvey pummel Houston. Many New Orleanians who relocated to Houston going through it all over again. My heart is so heavy. Houston is a special place for Louisianians. When Katrina destroyed New Orleans, they opened their hearts and homes to us. It's our turn to return the favor. If you are able, please donate, my fave charity, that I trust to use the money to actually help, is @samaritanspurse. My heart is with Houston. We won't forget the way you took us in at our worst.

Hey #instafam! 📝 Today I'm dropping some knowledge on ya! For real #majorkeyalert but for branding. Below I'm teaching a mini-lesson on fonts and what they mean. When you work with a branding agency, or a professional, we do more than just pick pretty fonts. There are actual meanings behind each. Let's dive right in: 1 - A SCRIPT FONT is a type of typography that uses a fluid stroke similar to handwriting. In branding, script fonts are seen as elegant, sophisticated, and personal. 2 - A SERIF FONT is a type of typography with a line attached to the end. In branding, Serif fonts are seen as traditional, respectable and reliable. 3 - A SANS-SERF FONT is a type of typography without the extra line attached to the end. In branding, Serif fonts are seen as clean, modern, chic, simple, and minimalistic. Cool huh? Take a look at your current branding. What do your fonts say about you? ____ #linkinbio to work with us! We are a lifestyle branding and web design agency. Let us tell your story. We begin the process by getting to know you, your business, and your goals through our comprehensive branding questionnaires. From there, we start the process of creating a unique experience just for you.

Serious question for you... If I looked at your logo and brand imagery right now, what story would it tell? (See my stories ☝🏽 ) Would I know exactly who you are and what you do? Would I be confused as hell and not sure exactly what you offer? Would I quickly click the back button because it looked a hot mess? Branding isn't just about having a beautiful logo. Branding should tell your story. Your brand should represent your products and services in a meaningful way. Seriously, what story is your brand telling? ___ #linkinbio to work with us! Let us utilize your passion and vision to create a visual representation of your brand that speaks to your audience and meets your business goals and objectives.

#hustlenotes Men lie, women lie, numbers don't - Jay Z I don't think there were ever truer words than this, esp when marketing yourself online. Numbers don't lie. When it comes to business, numbers should play a huge part in your decision making. I check numbers daily. Google analytics, Instagram stats, bounce rate, page views, keyword competition, etc. From there I make educated decisions about content, services, and next steps. I know that if something hasn't worked in 6 months, it's probably not going to work. There is a comfort and security in having numbers to show the way. Don't be afraid of data! Let the numbers lead you. ____ Ready to work with me? Once you become my client, your business is my business. Join my client family! #linkinbio to hire me for branding, web design, blog design, Instagram marketing, product photography, and more.

Kinda hard for me to focus because I am literally only 9 days away from my beach vacation with my friends. Headed to Florida to enjoy a luxury resort, the beach, partying, and some much needed unplugged relaxation. Is the end of summer really here already?
Getting the rest of the year organized 📆 I'm stoked because this year I strategically hand-picked a few conferences and retreats around the world to help me up my game in business. And not just any old conferences, stylish and chic experiences that are created for women who want to level up. Today in my 👆 stories and on the blog I'm sharing all the conferences I ran across and put together the ultimate conference bucket list. Let me know where you are headed this year?
