Creativity chat and common website design mistakes (with Colette Stevenson)

In this episode of Online Marketing Basics for Busy Website Owners I talk with branding and colour expert Colette Stevenson about creativity, what make a great user experience when it comes to website and Clubhouse.

Since childhood, Colette felt "creative" and despite starting her professional path as an educator, she eventually found her way back to her passion for graphic design.

We cover what it means to be able to talk about design and creativity without a formal education in the subject (and I should know!) and cover how we both feel about modern website design trends.

Expect to hear our opinions on color palettes, negative space, typography, menus, and the website alignment plus I show Colette on of the WORST website designs in the world (as voted for by Reddit users!)

We also find time to chat about how we feel about Clubhouse, the newest social media app on the block and how we think our weekly Friday website review show is going on there.
