Small Business Week – 5 – Print and more

Print still has its uses especially for the small business. In the above presentation/e-book you will find what I call the ‘souvenir principle’ explained. Being able to take something material, physical, away with you is a useful reminder of a business, its services and how to contact them or visit their store. Business cards are the obvious example of this. They remain in use constantly these days. It is almost the same for brochures, leaflets and catalogues.

It is obviously the case that the design of your business card needs to reflect your brand – it needs to be a real example of you and the business you are running. Here are a few bundles and examples of various styles of business card to make it easier to choose properly.

Small Business Week – 4 – Digital Publishing

Here is another useful option to add to your small business armoury. Creating promotional, explanatory and introductory materials for print is one thing, add to that the same or similar documents available for download or to send via e-mail and you have added further firepower. Such documents can be uploaded to all sorts of sites including your own, or adding the option for people to provide an e-mail address so that you can send such to them. The documents can also be made available in a variety of formats, not just pdf. If you wish ask F4mmedia for help. Take a look at ‘The Souvenir Principle’ available online via Slideshare and Scribd, the principle is the same be it print or digital. These documents are something people can take away with them, in a manner of words, and have them at their fingertips for later viewing.

Watercolour week – 3 – fonts, backgrounds, actions, more – Resources

watercweek2a In all of this there is a lot to see. Designing for your projects can be quite a task, especially given the rate at which design styles change. Getting just the right look for what you are trying to do and to present can be hard work. Watercolours give a sense of freshness, springtime, arts, crafts, the home, the kitchen or living room table where mum and kids are hard at work, or perhaps you are taking a moment just to play away with some brushes, their is that hobbyist feel as well. With the typography to boot, you get a feel of the casual, handwritten, with just a dash of the erratic but in a comforted manner, ink and brush, pen and marker. These fonts can be added to all sorts of scenes – generated scenes of a desk, a table at home, a workstation without the office background, something floral, countryside, fun, gentle fun – and a variety of textures – watercolour itself, papers with different feels, wood and more …callig1

There is a lot for you to look at here – we can only hope that these resources will give you some good ideas for what you have ahead. Have a good look round – and there is still more to come …

The floral side of things contributes a lot to all of this style of design and the areas around it. They say we have reached springtime – British weather might have something else to say along the way but …

With all of this there is a sense of freshness, something that smiles keeping a homely and casual feel, between the arts and crafts texture of the watercolour side of things to the handwritten and slightly erratic versions of brush script fonts. These stylings add something very particular to any project or for any small or larger business. I might even reach for the ice cream myself in a moment.

Here we see glorious examples of new trends in typography and design. Just a short while ago we were using the then trend of handwritten marker style fonts. These gave a comfortable and comforting design style to the content created. Here we see another move on into styles that are more calligraphic but still with that sense of ease, homeliness and confort. You have that ever presence here of the kithcen table, mum helping the kids with their hobbies or schoolwork. Then again there is that sense of the home crafted, homemade – all that is welcoming, a touch of nostalgia perhaps.

There is the obvious shown above, the brush, art made in your own environment. It certainly adds some distinction to a brand, or any project. These fonts are often combined with watercolour decorative elements, something drawn, or something floral – see below.
