Color has a huge effect on branding, by creating moods and feelings that influence us. It can be your vital piece when setting your marketing’s tone and how your audience and market accepts your message.
It’s all around you, there’s no place to escape. It’s in the chair you’re sitting on and the pen you use. It’s in everything and its coming for you! You can’t run and you can’t hide because I’m a designer. Read the rest of this entry »

That’s right! You read the title correct. Ento is a new company, based in England, that is trying to convince people to start eating bugs. Insects provide nine times the amount of protein, eat alternative foods that we don’t, and take less land and energy to farm versus cattle.
Makes sense when you look at the logic behind it. But how on earth are they going to convince the public to use a cockroach as a salad topping at their next dinner party?
I bet you never considered why educational essays are in Times New Roman or why it is improper to use Comic Sans on a commercial billboard. Choosing what kind of font to use can be a deadly decision for a marketing company. It can mean the difference of a consumer buying your product or walking away…
“Customer Service”, let me tell you about Big Charlies Gun and Jewelry.
A tough name for a really tough looking guy. He doesn’t have a website and he doesn’t seem to advertise but if you google him he seems to come up all over the place.
He’s a big scary guy who must bend the scales at over 300lbs and wears twin shoulder holstered .45′s.
He has a burly gray beard and wears a jewelers visor and jewelers glasses cocked in the up position. They are the kind that look a little like military night scopes — only something more steam punk retro from the 40′s.
Befittingly, He sells and fixes guns and jewelry. Yea I see the relationship. I guess if you have a lot of jewelry you might want a gun too.
When you first arrive at his store, you’re faced with and must traverse through a series of security obstacles that make you doubt the reason that you’re there in the first place.

Though our technology has made us more connected, it seems that it conversely made us harder to reach.
Let’s say you want to do a design brochure for your company. Think of it as a puzzle. You have to determine the size and the elements that will have to go into it. Your best place to start is the copy.
If someone came to me and said, “Welp, I need you to design a logo of an Irish guy for a basketball team called The Celtics,” then I’d probably over-think the whole image.
Shoes with buckles? C’mon. A pipe? What about how kids perceive the logo?
Luckily Red Auerbach, the hall-of-fame Celtics coach who led the team to nine championships, commissioned his brother Zang to whip up a leprechaun who’ll play you one-on-one for his pot of gold.
The character even comes fashioned with a shillelagh, which is an Irish cane used to beat other leprechauns bunny foo foo-style.
(Editor’s note: A shillelagh is just a cane.)
Zang Aurebach concocted a transcendently iconic logo that will never be divorced from the basketball team hailing from Boston.
Say, would you like a transcendently iconic logo? You would?? Then go ahead and call Cimetta Design at 954.680.4584.
