TGIF!

It’s that time again…#fridaybiztip time that is!

In order to help all the lovely Saskatoon businesses thrive online, we started the #fridaybiztip. Our goal is to give you guys an online tip every Friday (or at least most) for you to hum and haw over the weekend. January seems to be a month focused on colour. Or maybe that’s just how we combat this bland, snowy, white season?

Last week we told you about how to keep your colour game (and codes) on point. This week we want to show you another amazing tool that can will make you feel like an artist!

Friday Biz Tip No. 5: How To Create The Best complimentary Colour Schemes of 2017

Fact: in a small business setting, resources to hire in-house marketers or designers are, often times, not realistic. We get that. Given this fact, unfortunately, that means a lot of the time professional marketing and design falls to the wayside. Companies have inconsistent branding, ametuer colour and design elements, and basically… dull material.

But don’t worry! There is help! We have already told you about awesome tools like Canva and ColorZilla to help you along the way with your design work. But we still have one more up our sleeve!
