GIFs and Instagram

September 1, 2014 § Leave a comment

So I learnt how to make simple GIF’s in photoshop using the stacking scripts function, for the sake of my new job at ExHighStreet. I have been working on various Facebook posts and website graphics for them, the main one at the moment is for their instagram (See Below).


In other news, I have now joined Instagram. I have been pestered for long enough about joining it, so I have now taken the leap. #HashtagsAreNew. So please follow me @scarletruthmargaret . 

Robin Williams

As everyone probably knows by now, an amazing actor, comedian and man in general sadly passed away. Robin Williams shaped many of our lives either through his films or through his charity work.
For today’s post, I have created a memorial for him in the form of this image and this quote. My thoughts go to his grieving family at this time.

Business has started to pick up this summer. With only one declaration form being signed, I’m afraid I can only show you one piece of art work:

Learning From Life

June 28, 2014 § Leave a comment

I think it’s key to learn from your mistakes. After receiving a high pass for my first year of university, I have been focusing on how I can boost my own business.

From being at Misspap, I learnt about timings of Facebook posts, though have only just discovered how to do this myself. Of late I have started to branch out onto twitter and ask for aid in advertising, through friends, and some friends who have their own businesses.

From talking to one of my friends, Author of Missing Gretyl, Simon Page, he told me about the benefits of using tinyURLs, as opposed to just using links. TinyURLs can make a post look a little less ‘wordy’ and cluttered. A normal URL will never seem appealing unless it is the main websites page. I think that this had helped me a lot and I will continue to learn as I go along.

Please don’t forget to like my Facebook page for updates.

Social Media

June 18, 2014 § 1 Comment

Social Media advertising is one of the fastest growing way of advertising. For this reason I have been experimenting with my own facebook page. From working with Misspap, I have learnt this. Also from working there, I learnt about the specific sizes for social media ads. The images that I have created, or ads, have all been experimental work I have created as I continue to learn about my own abilities.

With the help of a few friends my post had over 200 hits in 24 hours. Today I have released another post, and I hope that my following will grow with the next coming weeks.

Outcomes of Regret

June 5, 2014 § 1 Comment

Today I went to the sad double, funeral of a Lieutenant Commander and his wife. I was asked by the care home to show his daughter how he had answered the questions. The last one in particular.

The funeral was a gunshot funeral, which was a new experience for me. Have ministers as parents, I have been to many funerals, none like this. For a start, there were gunshots fired to salute the life of the man. The other major difference, was the fact it was a double funeral. Both him and his wartime sweetheart had passed away within a few days of each other. Maybe it is true, you can die of a broken heart.

After the funeral, with the guidance of the matron of the home introduced me to their daughter. I explained to her that I was doing a project at university and that I had met her parents. I showed her the answers he had given one of which was that he regretted not spending a lot of time with his daughter and that if he could tell future generations one thing, that he would say that they should cherish the time they have with their family, because life will flash by and you’ll regret it later. The daughter broke down crying and gave me a hug.  I can only hope that I did the right thing by listening to the nursing home.

This project has had a major impact, and it’s not just me that it is affecting. I think that once I reach one hundred service men and women, I will publish this as a first volume.
