A Logo Project an AE Loves

I love logo projects. As a non-designer, seeing the team dream up relatively simple visuals, from seemingly nothing, that can translate a complex brand is exciting. So when we recently got the opportunity to create a whole suite of event logos for a long-time partner, I couldn’t wait to see the results. Here’s how it went.

In 2019, Wellness Council of the Midlands (WELLCOM) and Live Well Omaha merged to form a new nonprofit – The Wellbeing Partners. Read More

Episode 4: Why Advertising is Less Effective if Your UI/UX is Not on Point

Ever wonder why your ads are not converting as much as you’d like? Or why your visitors are not staying on your website for very long? In this episode, senior UI/UX designer Justin Henriksen explains why it doesn’t matter how great your advertising is if you’re not thinking through the UI and UX on the other side of the ad. He helps us understand the difference between the two, as well as how both should work together to create a “holistic customer journey” that will support your business objectives and keep your customers happy.

Or maybe your company needs to make a clean break with a troubled past and introduce itself anew to the marketplace.

Design Just Might Save Lives

“Flatten the curve.” Thanks (or no thanks) to COVID-19, this phrase has become part of our daily vocabulary. It’s everywhere: in headline news, on social media, and chats between co-workers and friends. Just one month ago, we hadn’t even heard of it, even though this debilitating disease was sweeping through Asia.

Fast forward to today and we are in the midst of a global pandemic. For me, it feels unworldly. It’s like we’re trapped in an apocalyptic sci-fi movie except there’s no Brad Pitt in sight to save us. Read More

Fisher-Priceless

Fisher-Price launched a brand refresh effort in December of 2019. The work done by Pentagram, Wieden+Kennedy and Fisher-Price is a masterclass on brand expression. The coordination of different agencies, contrasted brand history, varied expressions across multiple touchpoints for multiple products, and a pitch-perfect execution like this doesn’t happen by accident. You would be forgiven if you thought that with money, size, and ubiquity, a brand refresh effort like this would be relatively common. Not easy, but certainly not a risky endeavor. Read More

Will SXSW Hottest Trends Live Outside SXSW?

As covered in a slew of other blog posts covering SXSW, there was one tech trend that climbed above the others this year, the geo-location meetup. Think of it as using your mobile phone location for connecting rather than just broadcasting.

Good Clients Make Good Friends

I ran across this post today and really like it. Sometimes in the day-to-day stress of the job we need a little reminder.
Treat clients like friends:

Understand they have bad days, good days, days they need you and days they need to be left alone
Give them a second chance if they make a mistake
Give them a hand when you can
They have different levels of knowledge (sometimes you have to walk them through things)
Show them something new, Read More
