Rebranding + Fresh Starts

With my quarter-life birthday fast approaching, I thought it high time to begin something that has been on my to-do list since January — a rebrand. Logo, website, blog…the whole shebang. I thought I’d share with you the beginning stages for a bit of accountability, and I also stumbled upon this quote by Hans Hofmann the other day and thought to myself, yes…this nails it:

“The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak.”

What do you guys think? I sure do love a fresh start…

    I love that you’re telling us so that other people know about your goal and can keep you accountable. I do that too. :) I admire the quote by Hans Hofmann–the minimalist inside me is at war with the hoarder.

  3. Claudia

    What a great quote! I look forward to seeing what you will do Jessica.

    I always found this quote nails it. “Amateurs look for inspiration; the rest of us just get up and go to work.”
