The great thing about the internet is that small business occupies the same screen space as big business. On-screen, your website is as big as Coca-Cola and Amazon. Use that screen real estate to wow your visitors, to entice them to click further and learn more about you. That is the main lesson I learned at Savannah College of Art & Design: that our ideas are as big as we make them. The digital world is open to us all.
