Summer Olympics 2012

London 2012 Olympics LogoSummer is just around the corner, and that means that the Summer Olympics are too (July 27 – August 12). I just received an enewsletter from BrandsoftheWorld.com and I was reading about all the hype surrounding the logo created for the games held in London, England this year. According to www.spiked-online.com, criticism about the logo include: “the design sucks. It’s just too difficult to read the numbers ’2012′. They are barely distinguishable as jagged, cut-out shapes, and the colours are garish. Meanwhile, the Olympic rings… have been shrunk to a tiny detail and treated in a single colour.” You are welcome to read the entire article here to get all the juicy details.

A couple of years ago we wrote a blog post about historical olympic logos and we asked what your favorite logo was. I’m curious what your thoughts are on this latest Olympic logo! I had a look at the ticket design for the games as well, and I can honestly say that I quite like them! I love the bright colours and I think that they have echoed the “jagged, cut-out shapes” and “garish” colours quite nicely in the design! Your thoughts?2012 Olympics Tickets

5 Marketing Questions to Ask Yourself:

What are you saying? After branding, a user-friendly interactive website is likely one of the most important tools that you need for your business or organization. Your online messages, along with cohesive marketing collateral, make a big difference for increasing your business. To help you get started in the thought process, here are 5 Marketing Questions you should ask yourself:

1. If I’ve never heard of my business, is it absolutely clear ‘WHAT IT IS?’ that I do?
2. Do my messages immediately identify the ‘WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?’ question?
3. Am I consistent in my branding across ALL print, logo, tagline, ad, POP item, website and Social Media?
4. Do I have a UNIQUE printed piece that I could give to my clients that encourage repeat business?
5. Does everything I do include my website ADDRESS?
