Introduce yourself and profession to our readers: I'm Dejhanie Brown, the brilliant mind behind DB Designs. I'm a 24 yr old graphic and web designer, as well as a certified event and wedding planner.
What inspired you to pursue this area of interest? I always was very artistic even as a child. I love anything about visually designing something or I like to say making it look pretty! I love the wow factors whether it's the little details in my graphic designs, on my websites, or even in my event decor.
What advice would you share with those interested in a similar pursuit?
My advice is to never think what you are doing is too much. You are able to do anything you want no matter how far fetch it may seem. Also, there is always room for improvement which means you never stop learning, you never stop critiquing and you never get comfortable.
Discuss a professional challenge and how you overcame it:
A professional challenge for me was learning how to prioritize my task and manage my time better. To help, I purchased a planner and a notebook. I never go anywhere without those two. I create daily to do lists and lists of projects in terms of due date and importance. It has been a big help managing my time.
What is next for your brand/business in 2016?
Next for me and my business is finding the perfect commercial space to create a venue location that I can rent out for events, and expanding my website to feature a designer corner filled with resources, webinars, classes, and how to guides.
How can readers connect with you online and through social media:
It's pretty easy to connect with me via social media. My phone is glued to my hand at all times. I'm heavily active on Instagram @dbsdesigns and @dbdesignsevents. I'm working on my twitter, tumblr, and Facebook post.
