Social Media – a few ideas

Even the small business can make use of social media to aid in their promotion and marketing. Indeed, facebook pages and groups are often ideal for many small outfits, artists, craftspeople and the like. There is the added advantage in that customer relations can work out far more direct and personalised, less a case of the corporate wall before current or prospective clients or customers. Tumblr is often useful for the more arty of businesses and producers but other businesses can find real value there. Any business that can use pictures/images – of their products, people enjoying the services offered, the results of work done – all such can find a use for Instagram and Pinterest. Any business can manage to find a use for promotional video, hence Youtube and following on from that, facebook, twitter etc. can all be used for business purposes.

Do you use social media as a platform to market your business? Want to stay up to date with the key changes that could affect how you run your business?

While there have been periods where squares or circles were the shape of choice, that has shifted to more interesting asymmetrical shapes, lesser used elements such as diamonds and layering of shapes of all kids. Here’s what’s trending in design this month: 1. Diamonds The simple diamond shape that you drew in elementary school is popping up in plenty of designs. From use as a container for photos to an outline for visual emphasis to the dominant part of a photograph, the shape has plenty of flexibility. And it simple. This style is no more than a square turned on its side. The sharp lines make for interesting reference points in the design and can add an element of motion or direction that doesn’t exist otherwise. The diamond stands out in these designs because it is so different. While the shape can be used in a number of ways, it can be

Here’s the point of emphasis… That’s the theme this month. This collection of trends focuses on adding emphasis to the design with specific detailing from italics to split screens to stark, minimalist backgrounds paired with a trick or two. Here’s what’s trending in design this month: 1. Split Screens Split screen design was something that started gaining traction in mid-2016 and now it is a big deal. Browse through collections of website design and split screen outlines are everywhere. What’s nice is how quickly the style has evolved. Early split screen designs featured mostly symmetrical designs with a yin and yang style aesthetic. The new split screens have a more “anything goes” feel to them. The three examples below show three very different ways to use the same trend. Rency uses a split design to contain a loop video and the main navigation. The contrast between the white area and red is stark and forces the eye across the screen. It also ensures the user will find the
