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

The government agencies in Wallonia, the southern French-speaking half of Belgium, unveiled a new logo on June 27. This new logo is part of a marketing effort to promote Wallonia abroad and will be launched in full before the end of the year. It was developed by communications agency VO-Event in Brussels.

Wendy's Says Hidden Message In New Logo Was 'Unintentional'

Wendy's Says Hidden Message In New Logo Was 'Unintentional' | timms brand design | Scoop.it
Wendy's on Monday debunked the theory that it purposefully snuck a hidden message within its new logo.

 

Speculation about the subliminal message behind the logo, released last year, had been swirling since at least April when some people began to notice a word in the new image of the red-headed girl.

Web Design Tips

Text is hard to do well. Images are hard to do well. Tex over images is impossible except when you follow the lead of other great designers and learn how and when text over images can work like these 19 great and inspirational examples of text over images.

Note the balance where neither image nor text dominates. This is the rub of text over image design. Too much image and the text goes away. Too much text and the image doesn't seem to make sense or contribute anything.

Follow these great examples and your text over images will look great and contribute to your website design.

Creatives have mastered the art of turning off the self-judging part of their brains in order to brainstorm with less inhibition. (Of course, that's what the agency bar is for, too.)

Who isn't a "designer" of one thing or another these days? When in doubt I raid the places, resources and tools used by the pros. I'm not a designer, but boy do I have to design a lot of stuff.

Since I'm not a designer it helps if I can get a running start and STEAL (or be significantly influenced by) a great design. I never copy outright, but I look at cool stuff to get my creative juices flowing.

Nothing is immune from museums to Top 10 Websites for Designers :).

Building Engagement In

There are ways to BUILD engagement into a website's design. Here are three secrets to promote engagement not included in this excellent Slideshare:

* Place Email Subscription High Up and Prominent. 
* Include curated User Generated Content on every page.

* Create CTAs with CONTRAST.

 

Email Subscriptions
When your "Subscribe To Our Email List" Call to Action is high on the page in a Can't Miss It spot you communicate a clear "we want YOU" signal. 

UGC Everywhere
When you curate User Generated Content to your site you communicate how well you listen and care for community members. The website isn't all about YOU and what you think the inclusion of UGC says.

 

CTAs
I see to very common mistakes in websites I'm asked to review as Director of Marketing for Atlantic BT in Raleigh (http://www.atlanticbt.com ): NO CTAs or poorly contrasted CTAs. I PREFER CTAs to be buttons and usually test red, orange or green (depending on the background color). I'm convinced there is no ONE magic CTA color but the contrast is what makes a Call To Action helpful or not, clicked on or not, converting or not.

Engaging and experience should always go hand-in-hand, regardless of the implementation.

10 B2B Content Marketing Best Practices

10 B2B Content Marketing Best Practices | timms brand design | Scoop.it

Learn 10 principles for effective B2B content marketing, including creating content that solves pain points, and repurposing content to save time.Content marketing does have its drawbacks. It cannot be relied upon to create a direct cause-and-effect; i.e. running a blog piece will usually not result in a direct sale. It is also very difficult to measure the results; content marketing is somewhat like public relations in this respect. However, it is not a “warm fuzzy,” either. Any marketing program should be using a variety of channels to reach customers so that its messages come from multiple different sources. Content marketing is one of the many tools with which a company can deliver messages to its customers and prospects to “condition” them to purchase...

Cookjmc's curator insight, October 5, 2013 12:47 PM

Good to know and reinforces what is a good practice. Content is the number one most powerful tool you have. Optimize, reshape, post and more importantly get support from your org to proliferate it. One person or team can't do it all to win. Cross departmental engagement is key.

How Playboy Is Rebranding For The Younger Generation - PSFK

How Playboy Is Rebranding For The Younger Generation - PSFK | timms brand design | Scoop.it

Playboy is working to re-assert itself into American youth culture through a series of creative initiatives, the first of which being Playboy Marfa, a roadside attraction by Richard Phillips in Texas. The brand will commission a series of art projects to reintroduce the company to a younger audience.

 

The installation consists of a giant Playboy bunny logo that hovers above a black Dodge Charger perched atop a concrete plinth. The art is intended to capture the spirit of the magazine in its heyday by juxtaposing the vast Texan landscape (which captured the imagination of Donald Judd decades ago) against a muscle car, a symbol that plays on America’s luxurious past and Playboy’s vintage aura. The initiative is spearheaded by Playboy’s new creative directors Neville Wakefield and Landis Smithers.
