Hello, my name is Christian Perez, and I’ve been helping people build brands for over 10 years. I created this blog in 2013 when I first moved to New York City as a way to document my experiences.
I had just gotten married, was 21 years old, and decided to take my design career to the next level. I kept up with this blog for six months, posting a new article every Sunday. The consistency of my writings allowed me to connect with over 3000 people a month. I’ve always consulted with creatives and entrepreneurs one on one, but what I like about this blog is it allows me to reach thousands of people at a time.
At the height of this blog’s popularity, I used it as a platform to launch, The Name App. It’s a tool that helps people find available names for their ideas. With the help of my platform, the name app was picked up and featured on Forbes, The Next Web, Product Hunt, and Entrepreneur. More than half a million people have used the app since it was launched.
Seeing the value that building my platform gave me, I got the idea to create something for other creative entrepreneurs to grow their brands. My platform played a key role in my success and I knew that it could help others succeed as well. This led me to my current venture, Branded Humans, where we help people build brands and tell their stories.
Since my business is completely digital, I spend a lot of time discovering new places, meeting new people, and trying new things. Throughout this journey I’ve learned that life isn’t all about business although at times it may feel that way. As cliche as it may sound, life is about family, friends, and experiences. Learning to keep that work life balance has become somewhat of an obsession for me. Follow my journey as I share stories of personal experiences, business advice, design opinions, and everything in between.
