Today is a very special day for me. It’s day number 486 since I began work on what started out as a small side project. This side project launches today and is Nusii; Beautiful Proposals, Simplified. Nusii is online proposal software for creative professionals. It’s built from the ground up to help professionals like you and I win back billable hours and close more deals, faster.
In this week's Ultimate Guide to Proposals series I talk to Nick Hance. Nick is head honcho over at Reenhanced and has some great ideas on proposals and the process behind them. Nick is all about the business, and what better perspective to approach a proposal from.
The more I learn about business and design, the less importance I give to aesthetics. Design is a distraction. Don’t hate me yet! There’s so much more to a successful business than just good design. Design needs a reason to exist, a purpose. By itself design is art, and I’m no artist. I’m not saying you should neglect your design skills, but I would suggest there are more important aspects to our profession. Designer's need to put business goals before pixels as results will trump a pretty design any, and every day of the week.
