This week, branding mavens Jacki Cohen and Julie Bergman discuss brand development - how-to, elements to consider, why branding is so important, and how to get the most out of your brand to grow your small business. Jacki Cohen of Jacki Cohen Glass Art Designs and Julie Bergman of Coyote House Design share their knowledge and experience with us. When considering your brand, Julie points out, "There's a lot to think about with that. Who am I? What am I trying to sell? ...A lot of people want to know about you, your story along with your art."
Jacki Cohen - Jacki Cohen Glass Art Designs "My favorite part of creating art is experiencing that magic moment when someone connects with a piece of my art. I receive such pleasure when my work brings a smile to someone’s face. I want my art to find its forever home and for the owners to smile every time they walk by it. My goal is to have my art create a small sphere of happiness in someone’s home or office or to be the perfect gift. I also love doing commissions. Creating custom work allows me to really get to know someone so we can create the perfect piece. I love what I do and I know how fortunate I am to have my passion for my career. When I am working in my studio, I will get so involved that time stands still."
