Resources, design, styles

If you want to reach your target audience it is useful to have not only the right message being put out there – you need to present it in a very particular way. Perhaps you could style it in a way that is familiar to those people or businesses. But then again, perhaps you could do something that will catch their eye, use a style that they will certainly notice. It may be something not quite so comfortable for them but gives them pause for thought. To do any of this you will need the right resources to deal with the work yourself or someone to do it for you (and yes you can talk to us about this – check out our site on wix – f4mmedia, we can and will help pretty much no matter who you are or where you are).

Part of what you can do is to use video. Here are some animated patterns which could help in your creations.

Here are leaf images combined with two quite different sorts of fonts. Sit and think about what you want to achieve – the delivery is important, just as the actual item(s) being sent. What style, what typography, what palette, what tagline  – these are all things I have said before.

RiteTrax – Brand storytelling

isthis1

isthis2

For any business especially new, small businesses, getting the message out there is of vital importance. To do that it can be a great help to use a variety of images which aid in generating a brand image. Those images and the text that goes with them tell a story, we would hope, and that gives a brand not only an image, it also gives depth, texture and more. The right images for the brand and the story are, of course, crucial, also the palette used, the typography. Every image says something, every font has a character, its own story to tell.

It is an interesting venture and one I am so glad to be with – there is so much of interest here. The combination of forms of expression, the range of people, their backgrounds, tastes etc. I hope that my additional illustration adds suitable and depth-enhancing content to the brand as it begins to grow.
