It’s not the tool, it’s the talent!

S41-E5 - Featuring Marie-Louise O’Neill

July 28, 2021

It's not the tool, it's the talent!

Meet Marie-Louise from the local networking scene here in Northamptonshire. Over years of networking, Marie-Louise noticed that those who were very specific about what they did and who they did it for were far more interesting and memorable. Backed by 16 years in design, branding, and her Design Degree, Marie-Louise shares how she’s developed her niche utilizing, of all products, Canva!

This has lead to fantastic opportunities including a book commission, branding, and design projects using Canva and her Canva Circle group.

A fantastic episode that reminds the design industry that Adobe does not the designer make! No matter what the software or tools, your talent, and experience are far more valuable. Although, if you wish to be snobby, Marie-Louise doesn’t mind as that’s more Canva clients for her!

And finally, my personal favourite moment in this episode is when she threatened to send me “poo in the post”! This is a fun episode and one I am sure you will learn from, be encouraged by, and enjoy!
