Sticker Bomb Book Journey
Feeling CRAPPY and DOWN one day last week I went wandering around museum sites to cheer up. I found a great book in MoMA's Store. Sticker Bomb  ( ) is a book of carefully printed stickers from cool graffiti artists such as Alexei Vella ( ). Alexei's work was new to me, but LOVE IT!

Sticker Bomb is best $25 bucks I've spent in a long time (great for kids too). THINKING about where I'm going to "bomb" these stickers is fun. I wrote Alexei a quick email saying how much I like the work and got to thinking about places I know where the work could would fit.

So I sent a Tweet to one of the few publications I will read NOT on a computer - the RedBullBulletin ( ) - and hope they use Alexei.

Thinking about ways we can employ Alexei on Curagami our Durham, NC based startup too. Great stuff!!!

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Interesting post and definitions that is true to my experience designing high converting ecommerce websites. There are ways to manipulate eye tracking with images and call-to-actions, but that area on the right the "strong fallow area" was a GUTTER.

REI is my favorite example at how to manipulate the "gutter" tendency to be a black hole or a roach motel (visitors check in but never out). REI takes a link they know everyone is looking for, their SALE link, they color it different than the rest of their menu (red).

REI defeats the "roach motel" aspects of the right gutter with intelligence and design. In my experience the SALE area shopper will ferret that link out no matter where you put it.

By taking an area that is normally a dead end and putting something the sale shopper will surely find they kill the proverbial two birds -

* Their SALE shoppers can beeline right to their favorite place to check BEFORE they do anything else.

* The SALE curios can easily find the link too so they lose nothing and gain an active link in an area that is typically weak. Just one reason why REI is one of the best-crafted ecommerce website:

Take advantage of how people read web pages to get your message across with design, color, layout, etc.

Martin (Marty) Smith's insight:

Had fun writing this post after reading a Neil Ferre post encouraging lawyers to embrace content and social marketing or pay the consequences (slowly decling billable hours).

Neil's post is here:

Neil's post got me thinking, "If I were a lawyer how would I create a website to win fast..."

The retainer is a  projectized version of the lawyer's billable hour.  Content marketing can be the current day "retainer" for lawyers.
