Your Brand

You want to create a branded image - usually a logo - that can be a visual shortcut for people passing by. It needs to be something that can sum up your story and visually remind people your product. It needs to have the same attitude, texture and colors as your product or service in action! Then everything flows from there.

An important point to keep in mind is that the branding - the look, tone and feel - needs to be congruent with your target audience. If you are mainly serving women in their middle years, there's no point using racing car colors, sports metaphors and references to trendy rap music. Similarly, if your most profitable clients tend to be younger folks just starting out, then references to Johnny Carson, Wang word processing and the advent of color TV is most likely to make them think you're a dinosaur.

Branding is as much about matching the message to the market as it is about staying consistent across all platforms. As every new social network emerges and takes root, it really is worth it, to quickly sign up and secure your name, or your brand's name before anyone else does. At least this way you can wait out the success of that network safe in the knowledge that your identity is locked down. A good resource here is eitherhttp://knowem.com and http://namechk.com/.

New Work

Today, I began working with a new customer in the Florida area.
We will collaborate and build a website.   This is more about building a working relationship more than anything else.

Whatever the project a good foundation of communication is the key.
These guys are the Basketball industry.  Like I said thats doesn't matter.  What does matter though is for me to listen to what they they want and provide them good quality artwork / graphic design.

Artfully,



Hiawatha D.

Career Day


I have been asked to participate in Career Day and Van Asselt Elementary.
This is a day for their 5th graders to ask questions of the professional business people in their community.

Since I am a fine artist as well as a graphic designer I will have a I will have a lot to share with this group of 5th graders.  I hope to inspire a few students and help them start to map out a way to follow their passion.

Artfully,

Hiawatha D.
