I thought this was really interesting and good to know, especially for people who blog or market through articles. Being productive means really focusing your time on things that matter. If people only read a small percentage of what you're writing so they can do other things, how do you best capture attention & keep it?

Strong first few pages of examples here. My favs include 

Cat Magnet for actually telling a fish story (nice large CTA too). 
Design Council - love the flat, few colors with red as accent. 

True - don't like blocking the face, but works here. 

Stealable Ideas ae consistent with 2014 design trends:

* Big heros (tells a better story).

* Limit color palette. 
* Flatten out the design so it looks good on mobile too.
* Large Call-to-actions (DECLARE what you want your customers to do).

That last bullet, using a clear CTA, seems to be the hardest one to sell designers who feel to DECLARE is to shout. I disagree. I view DECLARATION in this context as helping by MAPPING and POINTING.

No one wants their TIME wasted and when you point them in the right direction with a large, high contrast CTA you've created a helpful hint. Subtle, when you have seconds, seems an unsupportable luxury. When DON'T we want to be CLEAR and help our visitors know how to journey along our paths?

A: NEVER :). M

Great Curator Profile: Cendrine Marrouat - CrowdFunde's Favorite Bedouin :)

Great Curator Profile: Cendrine Marrouat - CrowdFunde's Favorite Bedouin :) | CREATivity | Scoop.it
The Amazing Cendrine Marrouat Cendrine told us this was one of the nicest reviews of her work she's ever received. Hard to believe since here writing and tireless content curation is informative, inspirational, smart and hard working. Cendrine is one of the hardest working "bands" in content marketing. When she takes a "day off" she is probably teaching.We shared a fraction of where she writes and curates and its six places. Cendrine understands COPE (Create Once Publish Everywhere), but she doesn't fall into the trap. She actively supports, engages on and refines here content arsenal. Not ONLY is Cendrine one of our favorite and hardest working "bands" in content marketing and curation she is one of our favorite Bedouin too. Always moving and in touch with what's happening we love it when Cendrine shows up. We share a cup of tea, warm our hands against the desert wind and talk about where we need to go next. Cendrine beat me to the punch and wrote some nice words about me yesterday you can find in her 5 Social Media Gurus To Follow post:http://socialmediaslant.com/social-media-pros-follow/ My post was schedule before we saw hers, but hearing her feedback was inspiring just when inspiration was needed. Thanks Cendrine and rock on :).@Cendrine Marrouat - www.socialmediaslant.com

Why so FLAT?
Mobile is the single word answer to why most websites are flattening out their designs. As phones outnumber desktops one of the manifestations of "mobile first" is we are adopting designs that look better on our phones and pads - FLAT designs.

Amazing how quickly this worm turned, but you won't have trouble finding hundreds of examples of great flat website design like these 40. My favorite is http://madebyfibb.com/ for its cascading windows feel and images that engage and point at CTAs.

Seven Great "Get It" or "Not" Content Design Questions

Seven Great "Get It" or "Not" Content Design Questions | CREATivity | Scoop.it

Found these great questions on a site that was a tad too spammy to post the link here, but excellent questions for marketers and designers. Answering these six questions helps define if you get it or not:


* Always-on: Are you publishing at least daily?

* Editorial: Are you publishing content that is being shared?

* Independent: Do you own the platform delivering content?

* UX: Do you control all aspects of the user’s experience?

* Networked: Is content optimized for distribution?

* Measured: are Key Performance Indicators in place?

* Monetizable: Could your platform be someone else’s paid media?


Well done questions. How did you make out on the "get it" or "not" scale.
