The appearance of a business doesn't reflect it's personality, it is it's personality. Your mother probably told you that school "wasn't a popularity contest", unless you were one of the good-looking, effortlessly popular kids... She was right then, but no longer; business IS a popularity contest. Naturally, the good-looking ones have got an edge. They are automatically perceived as a more legitimate choice because the already-popular choices have at least one thing in common; they all look great. We call that association of good aesthetics with trustworthiness: "Perceived Legitimacy."
concerning a good brand aesthetic, appearances, and your mom:
Lucky for you, a business can gain a lot of PL without pills, creams or painful surgeries!

When I was a child, I hated taking naps. My parents claim I had a need to soak in everything around me. I then relayed these observations on the house walls via my Crayolas.
Over time, I realized my tiny body was filled with large ideas. My love for new experiences meant I had to be in a creative environment - one that I helped create.
I believe if you take the initiative & follow your instincts, you will always be happy..

I just wanted to make my own stick figure animations...It meant learning vector , then Flash and Photoshop. Was I playing hard or working late? I was learning fast and couldn't stop, it was the summer of '98.
I have spent some time working inside start-ups, small companies, franchises, and major corporations. What I learned in that time was ultimately: if I want to keep doing creative work creatively, my mind and body need an environment that I control.
Now I work in that environment.

Minimalist extraordinaire, depending on your definition. My favorite color is white (Yes, it is so a color. If you can paint with it, it's a flipping color.) I think the number of things I can tolerate within my own consistently undersized house and my desire to consolidate has played a significant roll in making minimalism a design forte.
My philosophy on the creative work I do boils down to: design is in the details, and most things are comprised entirely out of details.
