If you recall my Blog entitled, Lining Up the Help, you’ll remember the universe introduced me to the midwife that delivered Baby Girl. They also led me to New World Gifts and Awakenings.
Seems like the universe is conspiring again…
This tale starts a few weeks ago. In order to improve the quality of my YouTube videos, my husband purchased a new camera. At the time we weren’t thinking of doing 100 videos in 100 days, another coincidence? But it turns out, this purchase was rather timely… Perhaps a story for another day.
Returning from that tangent. With the new camera, my husband found some of our old equipment was no longer necessary or complimentary. To recoup some of the equipment cost (camera equipment is expensive!), he placed the extraneous items on Craigslist.
One by one, piece by piece, lenses, tripods, and adaptors sold. As he passed these pieces along, he chatted each new owner up to see what their plans for the equipment was. Through these conversations, he met interesting individuals. Including a graphic designer who is currently in his final semester at Buffalo State College.
Impressed with this young man’s work, my husband asked for his card (never know when you might need a good designer!). Not only that he shared the card with me. At the time, I was preoccupied and tossed the card into a pile, not giving it a second thought.
But that interaction sat in my subconscious… waiting.
Fortunately, it didn’t need to sit there too long. A couple days later, I had a moment of inspiration. In that moment, I realized I would need a graphic designer for a project I am working on. Not only that, I’d need one fast.
Which is where the problem came in. The woman I normally turn to is currently under the weather, so I’d need someone different. Where would I find someone?
That’s when I remembered my husband had met this individual.
Immediately, I hunted around the house to see if I could find his card. Sure enough, it was where I placed it. First thought, hmmm… I like this card. Good first impression.
I then went to look at his website. Nice clean lines. His designs fit my taste.
Liking what I was seeing, I had my husband schedule a meeting (which if you watch my videos, you saw in Day 17). After talking with him, we entered into a contract for which Joe is currently sketching ideas for my… have you guessed it yet? If not, you need to be following all my media… project. I should have sketches in hand this week.
To think, this professional relationship all came about by selling some equipment on Craigslist. Who would have thought?
