A Mask That Stands For Who You Are: The Art of Logo Design | PBS

Robin Good: Excellent PBS video illustrating through the faces and voices of several brand designers the history and role of logo design. From prehistorical times until today logo design has been always an activity characterized by the need to communicate easily and effectively what a person or an organization is about and (in some cases) the character and the traits its stands for (think of aristocratic or noble shields).

 

"Utilizing a silent vocabulary of colors, shapes, and typography, logo designers give a visual identity to companies and organizations of all types."

 

"Logo designers need to have a sense of what the company wants his personality to be, and then it "manufactures" this mask... and the logo is essentualy a mask, an identifier, that stands in for who you are"

I will tell you upfront that it is extremely difficult to hit on all three.  At least it is for me.  But if you can, then you can see amazing results, which is why I think crafting great Calls to Action is a goal worth striving toward.  Typically, you craft a CTA that hits on one of these pretty easily.  With a little thought it’s not too difficult to hit on two of the keys, but hitting on all three at the same time is what is tough.

Justin Bruce's curator insight, May 21, 2013 7:23 PM

You can't be everything to eveyone!

 

When developing marketing strategies for new clients we often come across this problem. They say the offer great service, a great product at a great price. Well that's just not good enough!

 

These values are mandatory, if you dont offer above, close your doors and do something else cause its only a matter of time before someone else (around the world) offers your market the same thing.

 

It's difficult to convonce clients to see the value in owning a niche as opposed to owing a small share of a huge market. The striongest argument in my opinion is if you own a niche, you also own the opinion leaders, innovators and early adopters. These are the aspirational segment that we all want to or end up mimiking. Own them and half your work is done. They will market for you as advocates of your brand.

 

How???

 

1. match what you offer with what they want

2. segment and target

 

This article from b2bleadblog.com will help with clearly defining what you offer...and it's NOT everything, it's not great service, price and product. 

It's the passion for striving to be the best at one thing and all teh other things that go along with that.

 

If you want help developing value propositions, unique selling propositions, segmentation strategies, market research, etc contact me at justin (at) jb.net.au

 

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, May 21, 2013 9:53 PM

This is truly a great resource! From the article:

 

If what you wrote down resembles any of these …

 

“We empower your software decisions.”

“I don’t sell products and services; I sell results — my guarantee.”

“We help companies find their passion and purpose.”

“We are the leading [insert your service here] provider.”

“We give XX% off for new clients.”“This site has the solution your company is looking for.”

 

 

Then it’s very likely your marketing campaigns are underperforming from poorly-crafted value propositions that are also likely leaving some serious leads and revenue on the table.

The Truth About How Much Workaholics Actually Work

The Truth About How Much Workaholics Actually Work | No.113 Branding | Scoop.it

Hunting through data from the American Time Use Survey, conducted annually by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, and other time-diary projects, the author came to the inescapable conclusion that how we think we spend our time has little to do with reality. We wildly overestimate time devoted to housework. We underestimate time devoted to sleep. We write whole treatises glorifying a golden age that never was; American women, for instance, spend more time with their children now than their grandmothers did in the 1950s and '60s.

 

These curious blind spots continue into the realm of work. People who get paid by the hour know how many hours they work. People who inhabit the world of exempt jobs have a much more tenuous grasp on this concept but, as a general rule, the higher the number of work hours reported, the more likely the person is to be overestimating.

Haifeng LIU's comment, August 15, 2013 6:23 PM
Great thoughts here - these layers are complex and it's difficult to cut through them all and get through to customers and build relationships in the process. I remember one of the hot topics at SXSW Interactive 2011 was gamification, which began with social tools like Foursquare that rewards frequent customers with badges and "awards". I'll be interested to see if this layer comes back as you predict and becomes the engagement magnet.
Elaine Li's comment, August 16, 2013 8:39 PM
This article clearly shows what are the six layers of customer engagement. At beginning, when staff meet customer they need to make an appointment and talking face to face. This way quite waste time and inconvenience。But the relationship between staff and customer quite closer. I agree with Steven’s opinion, as the technology has improved, there is more and more people start to use internet on computer to solve problems online and to get the information what they want. This is the main point why business start to create their own business website. To create their official website which give customer more convenience way to connect to company and also give customer a chance to do the self-service online. The company also can get feedback or opinion from customers. Also, if the customer doesn’t like to meet new people this is a confortable way to communicate with each other. There is more and more people starts use the social media platform such as face book to communicate with each other and to know about the service and produce of the business. Social media platform is another way for business to improve their customer engagement. Nowadays, company starts to turn their customer engagement into game try to attract more people. In my opinion, I still think communicate face-to-face is a best way to improve the customer.
Sam Liu's comment, August 20, 2013 7:08 PM
This article talks about six layers to engage with customer. the first one is face to face, but it doesn't seen much now as it is costly. As customer have more self-options, it also took away relationship. The second layer is digital layer. people became preferable to chat room, because of time-saving. The third is social layer. A business have to be where customer be. For example, many people using facebook, the business need to be there to socialize. The fourth is Mobil layer, many people have facebook, but now they use facebook through their phone. A business have a website isn't enough, they have to create a website that can use on the phone. the fifth is virtual layer and last one is game layer. The example is cited is World of Warcraft. An average for each player spend on this game is 6 hours.
