Self-promotion is a necessity for designers contending with today's challenging economic climate. Unfortunately, designers often view self-promotion as an impossibly complex, expensive, and competitive endeavor. To Aliyah Marr, however, the process of self-branding is as simple and natural as falling in love. She offers strategies that will help you develop your own personal design brand and communicate it to potential clients and employers. Aliyah also showcases unconventional websites, digital movies, and business cards that make a powerful impression, often with a very small budget.
