I’ve been teasing a little over on instagram about a big Every-Tuesday announcement, and I’m so excited to announce it today! When I first started Every-Tuesday in October 2013, my sole purpose was to help aspiring designers (formally trained or self taught) find confidence in their work and improve their skills affordably while also making some really cool artwork along the way. Urged by co-workers at my full time job to create video tutorials sharing some of my program tricks, I set my nerves and self doubt aside. I bought a usb mic, some screen recording software, and sat uncomfortably in front of my computer to record my first video tutorial in January of 2014.

I have been so encouraged, brought to tears by kindness and have been incredibly fulfilled by the comments, emails and messages I have received since then. It has been 2 years of creating content in every free moment stolen on nights and weekends. And it has been a struggle – not because I’m totally sleep deprived (ha!), but because I want to give more and there’s only so much time in the day when you have a full time job and commute an hour each way. After 2 years, it was time to make a decision.

Today is my last day at my full time job.

It was at this job I met Spence for the first time. We got engaged on the rooftop there and we spent nearly 4 years together getting to work and collaborate on amazing projects like Coca-Cola’s sponsorship of the 2014 Sochi Olympics and Powerade + VISA’s 2014 FIFA sponsorship with the rest of a creative team.

Oh yea, today is Spencer’s last day, too. If we were going to leap, we were going to leap together. We’re going to make Every-Tuesday something really special, more than it already is. It’s safe to say we’re both terrified and excited, but definitely more excited.

I’m looking forward to finishing my first ebook on how to get hired as a full time graphic designer (coming early next year!), designing my first font (the Every-Tuesday 6 week font project where we’ll create a font together will kick off the beginning of October) and there’ll be many, more frequent Skillshare classes, so we can go deeper than we’re able to in 10-15 minute tutorials. Spence will be Every-Tuesday’s developer and we’ll be making a few tweaks here and there to improve your experience overall. There’s so much to look forward to, I hope you’ll join us for this crazy fun ride!

Whether this is your first visit or if you’ve been here from the beginning, I’m so grateful you’re spending part of your day with me. Have a great weekend while Spence and I freak out, question everything and get to work for you!

xoxo

    I’m so excited!!! I have been OBSESSED with ET since I first came across one of your youtube tutorials in November last year.

Toutes mes félicitations et tes wonderful tutorials all time. I wish you just beautiful continuité, so great wow ^_^

  • Teela,
    I only stumbled across your videos and blog a few weeks ago and it is now one of my favorites! A graphic designer myself, I often find myself watching your tutorials to learn even more. I love your content and your videos and I am so glad I can look forward to more!
    Good luck on the new adventure, can’t wait to see what is to come 🙂

  • Congratulations, Teela and Spencer!

  • I enjoyed my watercolor logo class on Skillshare so much. You definitely have a talent for design and teaching others too. Congratulations and good luck to you both!

  • Congratulations! This is every creative’s dream and I’m excited to follow along!

  • This is great news, congratulations! I LOVE your tutorials and have learned a lot from you. Can’t wait for your book!

  • Agreeing with all the comments posted, I have also learned so much from your uncomplicated tutorials. Thank you for sharing your knowledge and time.
    I remain,
    a loyal E-T fan/follower.

  • Good luck on this adventure! I’m sure you will be very successful. Thanks for the great tutorials, I look forward to them every week!

  • Congrats to you both! I sure could use your book. I am in the middle of getting my Computer Graphics certificate in December, and want to go back to work after being a SAHM for over seven years. New, is scary, but can be fun. Good luck on your new adventure. It always helps to have a partner in crime.

  • This is so awesome! I found and followed you on Instagram first and realized only maybe last week that you also have a website and it’s been in my RSS reader ever since. Thank you so much for offering all of your knowledge to newbies like me, I can’t emphasize how much it helps… we can’t do it without people like you! A big congrats on this leap — it is also a dream of mine one day, so it’s good to know that it’s possible, no matter how hard it might seem 🙂 So looking forward to everything you’ll be creating in the future.

  • Oh! Congratulations! It really feels great when starting your own business! Wish you all the best! I found you this week from Skillshare, I loved your class there, and then jumped right into your blog, where I got lost for many many hours (I now watch your older posts). You are an inspiration! I’m looking forward to see what you’ll create now that you’ll do this full time. I am certain that everything will turn out perfectly ideal! Love from Greece xx

  • just wanted to chime in with all the lovely people in the comments above; i love your tutorials! They’re one of the best out there (i’ve searched through a lot!) because of how methodical you are with your teaching and your very clear visuals. Thanks for what you do and i look forward to your book!!
    -Aspiring designer 🙂

  • Fantastic and exciting news! Congrats! I love your work.

  • Congratulations! So exciting! I am an aspiring graphic designer and I can’t tell you how helpful, encouraging, and fun all your tutorials have been for me! I love having a great resource for figuring out graphic design-related things since I don’t have a degree and am trying to figure it out on my own! I can’t wait to see what you do next!

  • That’s amazing news! Best of luck on your new adventure 🙂

    I love this place. Since I stumbled upon it late last year, it has become my favourite go-to place to learn more about graphic design and Illustrator (with a little Photoshop thrown in). I’ve notice your videos were sometimes recorded very late (or early, depending on your perspective) and wondered how you do it. I too make an hour long commute and it is definitely challenging to fit everything in. I’m so glad it looks like we’ll be the winners of this change 🙂

  • Yay! Congratulations 1000 times to both of you! I love hearing stories about people that get to achieve their dreams and you have put so much hard work into it – there couldn’t be a more deserving person. So excited to see what the future holds for you. Absolutely love all of your videos, they are teaching me more than I could’ve ever learned when I was in college. Yay!!!!!!!

  • I just found your site today and as an aspiring graphic designer, I am so excited to learn more! So excited for you!

  • Congratulations! Such an exciting time…. just wanted to let you know that your inspiration stretches all the way to Australia 🙂 Graphic Design has always been a passion of mine, and whilst on maternity leave a few years ago I finally bit the bullet and went back to study to gain formal qualifications. I run my own small boutique studio (on the side – haven’t had the courage yet to leave my main job!) and I can honestly say that I have learnt more from your tutorials than ever did during my formal studies. Every-Tuesday is actually Every-Wednesday in my studio (with the time difference). I wake up on Wednesday mornings, make a coffee and sit down uninterrupted to read the blog/watch the tutorials. Inspires me beyond words, so thank you.

  • I think you know how much you’ve taught through your blog. Couldn’t be happier for you!! Congrats beauty!! Xoxo

  • Congratulations and good luck! I have no doubt that you’ll be fine, It’s obvious to anyone who has seen your work or read your posts that you have the talent, support, and dedication to do incredible things. Today was my last day at the agency I’ve been with for almost 5 years and starting tomorrow, it’s freelance for a while. So I totally understand the mix of joy and fear you are experiencing as you head out on your own! I’m also very glad I read this today, it’s inspiring and comforting to know that other designers are taking big risks, and if I’m crazy for doing it, at least I’m not the only one. I’ll be watching here and on IG as long as you keep posting the good stuff.

  • I wish you and Spence all the best! Cannot wait for the new and exciting designs you will be sharing with us. You two are very brave and I admire you.

  • I’ve only just discovered your work recently, but it is by far one of the best things I’ve found this year. I always get a feeling of excitement when I come to your site, because I know I’ll be able to do something hands-on right away. I love design, and even went to school for it, but I’ve never had the confidence to try to work in the industry. Learning from you is helping me to build that confidence 🙂 Thank you so much for doing what you do! If you ever decide to offer internships (or if you ever make it out to Hawaii hehe) I’m your girl! <3

  • I’m late to the party…sorry! I just wanted to say that this is amazing news! How brave of you and Spence to make this leap.

    What you’ve built so far is incredible and I am sure it will only get better. I can’t wait to see what is to come. I’ll be tuning in each week.

    Congrats!

  • Teela-Tuesday you are the best. I am student in fine art and graphic design at the U of U and I jump on your website every chance I get. I’ve told all the other students in the program about you also. KEEP THE LOVE COMIN and good luck with the new chapter!

  • Teela, I’ve been subscribed to your YouTube for about a month, and I just now saw this post! I watched your day in the life a few weeks ago. That’s so awesome you are taking the plunge! Also, good riddance for quitting that commute. I hate commuting. I used to commute 2 hours to school. I will never do that again. I love your site and tutorials. They have been so helpful. My goal is to do all of them haha. Well good luck and I look forward to seeing what’s to come!

  • Teela, I came across your tutorials about a month ago and I’ve been obsessed ever since. My boyfriend knows who you are – I talk about you like we are friends! I look forward to getting those e-mails and YouTube alerts Every-Tuesday! I just did some digging to find this post and I think it’s so inspiring that you and your husband work on this project together. My boyfriend and I own a business together and I LOVE working with him! I’d love to see some dog-inspired and relationship-inspired posts & projects. I’ve been promoting you and your site to everyone who mentions graphic design 😀 I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve watched certain videos to review a technique or project. I really can’t thank you enough for putting quality work out there for us hopefuls.
