Narrative. More often than not, when given the choice, people will choose something with a narrative over something that doesn’t have one. Now is the time to develop your narrative, your story. This will evolve out of the brand exercise completed in the previous ideabook.What if you’re just starting out and don’t have a large body of work to draw from? It doesn’t matter. You still have a story to tell, whether it’s how you came to be a designer or an architect or a furniture maker. Perhaps it’s your passion for saving the planet by designing off-the-grid movable homes. You’ll revise it and refine it as you build your business, but you have to start somewhere.If you have an established portfolio of work, make sure to document it with high-quality photographs and, if possible, presentation drawings. Create a profile on Houzz. Built work speaks to your talents like nothing else, and poor photography can suck the life out of great spaces. Even if you don’t have the budget for a $5,000-per-day photo shoot, invest in a good digital single-lens reflex camera and take composed photos using a tripod. Your built work is invaluable; it represents a huge time investment. It will net you more work and the opportunity for publication both online and in print.Take action: Commit your story to paper, then gather the visual materials to support it.
