What is Visual Language & How Comics Can Help Create It [graphic] | Education | Scoop.it
“ Visual language Lab: Researching the structure and cognition of the visual language of comics”MartyVisual Language Important For Internet MarketingOne undeniable trend is Lean Visual Marketing. We want videos and pictures and we want to understand complex ideas FAST. Scooplit is riding the crest of the lean visual marketing wave and exploding. We know that there are some core ideas in this new "visual marketing revolution" including:* Surprise helps but is had to create.* Smashing expected visuals into unexpected can create surprise.* Humor works. * Arresting visuals only work once UNLESS aligned to their content.* Without arresting visuals content marketing is doomed. * The "visual language" of your marketing must be consistent with all other marketing or dissonance results. I like the idea of studying comics to help achieve a sense of visual tone and for ways to connect images seamlessly with copy, tone ane theme.

Moose Road Residence: an efficient, ecological home in Hopland, California

Moose Road Residence: an efficient, ecological home in Hopland, California | Education | Scoop.it
Oak trees lead double lives. This fact became extraordinarily important to architect Casper Mork-Ulnes as he set about designing an ultraeconomical, light-on-the-land cabin nestled within an oak forest in rural Hopland, California. A pair of young San Francisco couples had approached the architect to design a modest but thoroughly modern shared country retreat. It was a job that seemed easy enough for the founder of Modern Cabana, a company that specialized in petite prefabs (and was sold to Blu Homes in 2012)—except that there wasn’t a single square foot of level ground on the 16-acre parcel, and the clients asked that Mork-Ulnes leave each and every oak tree undisturbed. Enter the arborist, who illuminated the fact that oaks create an alternate, nearly identical universe beneath the soil, meaning the trees’ bucolic canopies are actually mirror images of their complex root systems.

Just how fast is real-time marketing?

Just how fast is real-time marketing? | Education | Scoop.it
Real-time marketing is currently one of the most prominent trends in digital, however many businesses are still only just starting to experiment with this tactic.A key question therefore is how fast is ‘real time’?In Econsultancy’s new Real-Time Marketing Survey Report, published in association with Monetate, more than four-fifths of all respondents (80% company, 82% agency) said that responses should occur in two minutes or less.At the sharp end, 12% of company respondents said that real time was the ability to respond to consumer behaviours in less than a second. The ability to respond this quickly obviously requires marketing automation software, as human intervention wouldn’t be feasible in such a short timeframe...

Walmart Slumber Party

Walmart Slumber Party | Education | Scoop.it
“Who wants to spend the night in a Walmart parking lot?”There are a few generally accepted principles when it comes to the etiquette of spending the night in a vehicle in a Walmart parking lot. One night only. No chairs or barbecue grills outside an R.V. Shop at the store for gas, food or supplies, if you can, as a way of saying thanks. Walmart, the country’s largest discount retailer, says you’re welcome: its Web site says that R.V. travelers are “among our best customers.” The photographer Nolan Conway has been taking pictures of Walmart’s resident guests at several stores in central Arizona. Sophia Stauffer, a 20-year-old who travels the country in a van with her boyfriend and their dog, describes their lots, which usually feel quiet and safe, as their best option for most nights. “We really don’t want to work or live in a house,” she says.
