Welcome to Design Aglow’s new bi-weekly blog series: Coffee Break with Design Aglow Every other Friday we will be sharing a highlight reel of what we talked about over our coffee here at the office. Won’t you grab a macaroon, snuggle up with a kitten and join us in a much-needed work break? You deserve it. 

In case you can’t tell by now, here at Design Aglow we’ve been a little obsessed with donuts as of late. Which is why we had a donut bar at our Open House on Monday, obviously. Portland superstar Blue Star Donuts catered the event, which was a smashing success by the way — over 50 new and old friends came out to see our Portland space and munch on the best donuts we’ve ever tasted (move over Voodoo).

     
    • Have a Design Aglow purchase you’ve been wanting to splurge on? Now’s your chance! For a limited time, we are offering our brand new Hand Lettered Poster Printables for FREE with a $100 purchase! These beauties were crafted specifically for us, so you won’t see anything like them on the market. Transform your prints into Pinterest-worthy treasures (you’re welcome)!
     
    • Speaking of Pinterest, there are only THREE MORE DAYS to enter our Pin to Win contest! It’s so easy to enter — check it out here, and happy pinning!
     
    • We were a little distracted from work this week by this live feed of a newborn horse (need we say more?) from photographer Jodie Otte. Cuteness overload.
     
    • One of the most unique (and inspiring!) Kickstarter campaigns we’ve seen floated through our feeds this week: an Australian woman is attempting to change the way we view our bodies. She has already reached her Kickstarter funding for a proposed documentary but her project is definitely worth taking a gander at!
        Have a wonderful weekend~ xoxo, The Design Aglow Team

    Alyssa of Alyssa Grace Photography reached out to share her success with offering Design Aglow products in her studio. She shares, "I love the variety of products that Design Aglow offers because they give small business owners, like myself, a source for high quality, streamlined, and professional grade tools that are not easily found in the photography industry. I actively use so many of their resources: The Big Picture Planner for my own sanity, The Inspire Guide to help my clients find their vision, many design templates for books and albums, and OF COURSE the Albums. Just to name a few.

    We are photographers. We know our cameras, our lenses, and our lighting equipment. But what about people? We all know that some people-skills are required in order to be a successful wedding or portrait photographer. And we are also aware that not everyone is born with a natural ability to put people at ease quickly. So we’re going to help you create a game plan for successful interaction with clients.
