Summer Marketing and Design Bundles

As the seasons change our sensibilities change, our moods alter, what we look for moves on. So the question is – should our branding and marketing change as well, along with the design and copy that goes with it? Personally I would say yes! While we may hope for warmth and sun in winter, in summer we look for ways to enjoy it perhaps, sometimes we look to escape its harshness – come on! we have all managed a little sunburn here and there, haven’t we?

With the change in seasons we can put a different slant on things. We can set our products and services in this weather and all that it brings with it (apart from the snow shovelling services, of course!). Think about the emotions, wishes, wants and needs running through these days. Ask yourself how can you reflect your products and services in all that is going on – practically for people and in their minds, emotions and all the rest. Is there a summer side to you and your business?Summer Watercolor Floral BUNDLE by LarysaZabrotskaya available for $15.00 at DesignBundles.net

If you need help with all of this given your busy schedules talk to us. We are here to help and to throw a little imagination on the barbie (no, not Ken!).

You could perhaps refresh a number of things:

  • try a new print run, new business cards, flyers, brochures, leaflets
  • put out a new e-book catalogue, services handbook
  • re-style your social media channels with new banners, new ads and posts
  • try a new seasonal social media campaign
  • redesign your website, or at least give it one or two new features, designs, statements
  • give yourself a new logo, seasonal or not!

We can help with all of this, or at least give you a few ideas.

The emotional response

A few thoughts for you …

When you are getting your message out there – marketing your products or services, adding a thread to your branding – much of what you are attempting is to elicit and emotional response. You are hoping that emotion will make the experience memorable and keep you and your product, service or brand well within reach of the viewers mind’s eye.

As is obvious, there are a number of emotions that it would be possible to generate via your content, many but not all have a use in the marketing process. The sorts of response you are probably looking for include – a smile, gentle or broad, a nod, possibly with a grunt of agreement, a tilt of the head, a questioning look, a laugh, faint or deep, chuckle, titter or belly, a nod, an ‘mmm’ of agreement, and there are more. Each indicates an emotional response. It is your hope that memory accompanies these responses.

The above is an urban image with retro inline typography. It will resonate with particular people – the night time setting, the colouration, each add for one or more slices of the public to react positively.

Here we have a phone, a flower, a tidy handwritten font. This is a clean image possibly resonating with both men and women, a hint of informality from the font adds a personal touch, the rose and the smartphone indicate particular means. Who will agree with this image?

Here the urban along with a muted palette says what to whom?

A watercolour flower along with a plain message again written in a handwritten font, something comfortable, homely, but still with its own brightness which sits well with its directness. Will this sit well upon a tidy family dinner table or in a quiet living room?

Does this have to be described? Is this not clear, distinct in its own direct statement to the world of business, its palette and scene directly indicating the city?

Muted, a hint of negative space, reduced palette, thoroughly modern font. Who will this speak to and in what way?

Pointing towards the retro with a typography nodding in a similar direction, there are those of us who can feel that design scheme well, the reminiscent, the returning, the familiar.

In each case every element works with the other to elicit a particular response and is more accessible to particular groups of people – age ranges, gender, background, earning levels, interests, and so on. Typography, colour palette, image style, text, each has a part to play. If you then combine that with the channel and time it appears you have something of a complete picture and a potential plan – perhaps even ‘a cunning plan’. This is what we do and can do for you! We plan, we design, we write, we post, we print … We can do it for you!

I will write a series of short, pithy, useful pieces of text that can be used for graphics, social media and other online and offline marketing. Similar to slogans they will add to your branding and marketing – giving you more buzz, zest and interest from buyers. They will add a creative and imagina

Design trends – the story continues

In web design big picture backgrounds are continuing to have a presence. They allow for a more emphatic presence of a brand idea, a brand setting. There are also a whole range of interesting menu ideas making the rounds.

Nothing catches your attention like a high-drama design. Big images, unusual use of common elements or whitespace and adventure-based gameplay are different ways to introduce users to a project. Each

New font creation is aiding and indeed fuelling all sorts of moves within design circles. We are still seeing highly decorative fonts, some with a very retro or even vintage feel, some continue in the calligraphic brush script vein.
