My God! A post about our business for once…

Like most builders who’s house is falling down, it must be said that for all the consulting we do on Social Media, it really is

“Do as we say, not as we do!”

We tell all our clients that social media isn’t about just broadcasting your message over and over again. It’s about creating networks and conversations while educating and informing your audience. It’s also about rounding out the experience and although never showing your clients your stag night pictures, you should let them know what your interests are outside of business. Well having reviewed our sparse postings it’s been more rounding out and less about business. I’m OK with that as that was the reasoning for the blog in the first place but I thought I’d do a quick summary of our business, just in case you or someone you know is in need of some design or marketing support.

We’re a professional, reliable and creative graphic design & marketing agency.

We help businesses get seen and more importantly, remembered.

In an age where we’re bombarded with information, you need quality, professional solutions to cut through all the clutter and get noticed.

We work across all media with budgets and clients large and small.

Steve Jobs RIP. The man who thought different

Today marks the death of Steve Jobs.

A man who apart from the time I worked on behemoth Hi-end photo retouching systems, has supplied me with the tools that allow me to bring home the bacon.

The internet will, quite rightly be awash with tributes today talking about how to “Stay Young, Stay Foolish” etc etc but I thought I’d point you to a rarely seen video about Apple’s ‘Think Different’ campaign.

Their Ridley Scott directed 1984 Superbowl Advert has got most of the plaudits but the ‘Think Different’ campaign was so on-brand that it’s shelf life has lasted for decades. As long as Apple stick to their core values it will still have relevance for generations to come.

The video shows how Steve got Branding and goes to show that unless the client is completely onboard the chances of creating work of this quality are limited. This is a marketing masterclass discussing core values and speaking about benefits over features.

Steve Jobs, got design, got branding and could wrap it up with applying his products to our lifestyles… a rare breed and a tough act to follow.
