PS

 

“The New Alphabet was over-the-top and never meant to be really used. It was unreadable.”

Top 15 Most Used Cliche Images in Web Design vs. The Unicorn of Death

Top 15 Most Used Cliche Images in Web Design vs. The Unicorn of Death | timms brand design | Scoop.it

Mark Strozier's curator insight, November 26, 2013 7:18 AM

This is a great article to introduce you to the Unicorn of Death. The UoD gets attention.


The UoD has nothing to do with the "Top 15 Most Used Cliche Images in Web Design", but if I used any of the images highlighted in the article you'd skip right past this post.


In good design there has to be something of value to put your attention in a chokehold, otherwise it's cheap decoration. Design cliché's are just that.


You can thank the folks who set the standards at microstock sites like iStock, Dreamstime et,al.


From experience, I've had images rejected because they were deemed "..not stock-worthy..." Considering the images that are stock-worthy, that's not such a bad thing.

The Branding Source: New logo: Paris Region

The Branding Source: New logo: Paris Region | timms brand design | Scoop.it

Île-de-France is the name used for France's capital region, that is Paris and its extended surroundings. Last week, on November 27, different government agencies unveiled a new brand, "Paris Region", to market Île-de-France internationally and to established it as a region of tourism and economic growth.

A new English language slogan, "Source of Inspiration", is intended to express the "innovation, creativity and invention" that has sprung from the region since the French revolution. The icon combines eight sticks that form a "capital radiation" image in different colours, representing diversity, with an abstraction of the Eiffel tower, a universal symbol of Paris, the region and France.

2014 Marketing Trend: Smaller More Visual Messages, Bigger Impact [great #startups tip]

2014 Marketing Trend: Smaller More Visual Messages, Bigger Impact [great #startups tip] | timms brand design | Scoop.it

The new word in content marketing is small. Increasingly, brands are marketing via short-form social media like Vine, Twitter, Instagram, Instagram video and the newer platform Snapchat--not by broadcasting their silly old messages but by treating their prospects and customers with respect, engaging with them directly through brief snippets of conversation, personality and humor.

 

But it's not just for fun: Consumers who engage with brands via social media demonstrate a deeper emotional commitment to those brands and spend 20 to 40 percent more than other customers, according to a report from Bain & Company.

 

Taco Bell has been killing it on Twitter, creating a hip, fun presence to turn customers into evangelists. Based in part on its snappy, very human interactions, the fast-food giant generated enough early buzz to make Doritos Locos Tacos its most successful product launch to date....

Ann Handley says increasingly, brands are marketing themselves via short-form social media.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, November 25, 2013 9:07 AM

Great post for content-phobic startups. If sitting down and blogging daily is too much find alternatives for "little messaging" and do so more frequently and more visually (video, graphics). 


I'm a content and social marketer so would prefer to have both long form and short form content, but if creating the one is too intimidating create the other (short form) since some content marketing is always better than none.
