IMPORTANCE OF BRAND PHOTOGRAPHYMarketing

The Importance of Brand Photography

HS has talked a lot about branding lately - and what it means to you and your business. We thought it would be a good time to talk a little bit about the importance of brand photography. An Accurate Reflection of Your Business We already know that in business, appearances mean a lot, especially for a first time customer. Someone seeking you out online will make an initial judgment about your business based upon your photography. Great brand photography accomplishes a few things. At its very baseline, it shows you are a real business or person. When comparison-shopping any business…

A week or so into their start, every new member of our team is challenged to share a joke. This…

HearSay with Jordan – Graphic Designer

To spend any time with talented HS designer Jordan Biehn is to recognize he is a man who primarily lets his work do the talking. And though of fewer words, this “stand up” guy took the time to expand on his many talents and interests. When did you first consider a career in design? I was a junior in high school and my baseball coach also taught our art class. I began drawing and he introduced me to Photoshop where I started designing posters and flyers for our school. If you had a design superpower, what would it be?  Endless…

HS Graphic Designers Share Tips on Creating Brand Guidelines

Branding is a word that gets thrown around a lot. Branding may refer to your name, reputation, marketing executions, appearance and more. While all these things are part of your brand, the most instantly recognizable part is how you represent yourself in design - particularly your logo and mark. But no design or new branding considerations should ever take place without understanding the overall marketing strategy required for that particular client. Who is the target? When and how is the target exposed to the brand? What mediums will be most used? What impressions do we want a viewer to walk…

The Downfalls of Using ChatGPT for Marketing and Creativity

If you haven’t heard about ChatGPT yet, brace yourself—there’s a lot you need to catch up on. If you’re already in the loop, you’ve probably thought about using it to create your business’ marketing materials. We have, too. While we’re excited about the future of AI in marketing (more on that will be coming in a later blog), we think ChatGPT and its competitors aren’t skilled enough to be authentically creative OR effective at moving your audience. Here’s why. AI Can’t Be Creative by its Very Nature At first glance, ChatGPT seems to be an astounding tool. Going beyond a…

HearSay with Tammy – Graphic Designer

What design challenges do you welcome or enjoy? I think one of the challenges that brings me the most satisfaction is creating something awesome when there is minimal content or direction from our clients. Sometimes our clients just don’t know what they want or can’t put it into words, and, more often than not, we nail it! But sometimes we get, “That’s not even close…by a longshot!” (Emphasized by Tammy’s famous laugh) Besides design itself, what are some special skills you bring to your work? I would have to say…proudly…that I’ve been known as “the office physician.” This is probably…

HearSay with Bree – Account Coordinator

Bree LeBrun knows very well that Account Coordinator is a busy and important position. We talked with Bree about how she got into the industry and what she is doing to further her education and profession - while balancing some down time and trying new things. Tell us about your school and career path that lead you into advertising? For the first three years of my college career I was undecided on what I wanted to do. The only thing I was sure of was that I wanted a job where everyday was different and where I was able to…
