After a lot of umming and ahhing about my 'brand' name, and wondering whether I should 'rebrand' I took the question to my Notts Creative group meeting last week and asked my colleagues what they thought about it all...... should I keep 'sooziebee' or should I go with my very own name??
To cut a long story short 'sooziebee' came from a combination of a bag company my sister and I were going to start several years ago and a cute nick-name given to me by a little boy I know. When I first started working on my art I wanted a name that would be fun and quirky, which is what it was back then, but now I think I need something more recognisable and 'just me' which is why I have been thinking of the whole rebrand idea. The general concensus of the NC2 group was that I should change it sooner rather than later, which is pretty much what I had been thinking anyway. Lots of people who meet me don't necessarily connect me and my work to 'sooziebee' as they don't really know what it is.
Ok, that ended up being a long story not being cut particlualry short but you get the gist don't you? What oh what shall I do?? Throw away all of my lovely letterheads, business cards and comp slips, my stamp and change my blog.... and go with 'sue bulmer'?? Would this work??? I just don't know!! Let me know what you think people!!
