About the Ebook
Over the years, Acacia has faced success and challenging times. In a field where only 20% of workers are female, she knows how intimidating it can be for women to consider a career in technology. The good news is: an awesome and rewarding career in tech is totally achievable, and Acacia is here to help us find the way.
A fan of integrated creative web development, Acacia believes that the best developers are also designers. “Uncommon Creative: The Handbook for Unicorns” provides a roadmap for integrating both visual and technical skills into one integrated skillset.
Covering everything from basic visual theory to pricing to brand creation to establishing great business practices, there is a little something for every Unicorn in this book.
Web designers, web developers, tech enthusiasts, dreamers, and revolutionaries are all invited to join Acacia on her journey through the creative Web and all it has to offer.
With 20 full color original digital graphic collages by the author.
I am a professional brand experience designer and Responsive Web developer. I own a one woman boutique design and development company specializing in WordPress as CMS. I've been writing my whole life, but "Uncommon Creative: The Handbook for Unicorns" is my first book (September, 2018). I am passionate about social justice, and believe that better design thinking is the key to improving our lives here on Earth. My mission is to help more women and minorities get involved in small business ownership, web development, and technology writing.
