Why your Business Brand Shouldn’t Be An Exact Mirror Image of You

Mirror, Mirror on the wall… Who’s The Fairest One of All?” The wicked witch uses this line to ask her magic mirror about her beauty, and time and time again, the mirror always says, “Why, you are, of course!” Then, one day, the mirror answers “There is one fairer than you—and her skin is white as snow.” This simple truth sends the witch on a rampage. She disguises herself, poisons poor Snow White, and puts her into a magical coma.

This tale of jealousy and deception cautions children everywhere that nothing good can come of vanity. But if you ask the average small business owner what differentiates their business from the competition, one of the first answers you’ll hear is “Why, I do. I’m the best at this in the land!”—or some variation on that refrain.

Vanity is not the “fairest one of all.”

Vanity, even when backed by your business acumen or experience, is never pretty. And it’s not universally attractive to customers—unless they’ve worked with you in the past or know you socially. The fact that it’s you running your business probably won’t mean much to the average new customer.

Customers and prospects are more concerned about their needs, their businesses, and their situations than they are about how good you are. What they want to know is how you’re going to help them. And if you’re a one-person business, they’re likely to be more concerned about the fact that you’re the only one there rather than being thrilled about your experience.
And this is where a Logo Design steps in.

Your business brand’s job is to take your one-person business and make it seem established and stable—rather than fly-by-night and risky to work with.

A brand should also make your business seem more “businesslike”— and that means credible, dependable, and customer-focused. A business brand can help you position your business as helpful, concerned about clients, and capable of delivering.

Finally, a brand allows you to speak about and present your business as a separate entity—instead of constantly talking about you, you can talk about your business. In other words, a brand helps to take the spotlight off the entrepreneur and give the business a personality of its own. This allows you to do a bit more “crowing” about your business, without seeming as if you are bragging about yourself.

Keys to separating your business brand from you.

1. Think about how big you want your business to eventually be.
If you’re planning to stay a one-person business, then your business’s brand can probably be closer to your own personality than if you’re planning to grow your business and eventually hire employees. If you are planning to hire people, make sure that your employees will be able to demonstrate the brand characteristics you choose.

2. Look at other businesses in your industry and how they present their brands.
This can help point you in the right direction for your brand and also help you make sure your brand will stand out. Look at the things they talk about and how they talk about their businesses.

See which business’s materials and Logo Design you’re most drawn to and the lessons or suggestions you can pull from their materials and repurpose for your own. Just don’t copy them exactly, or your brand won’t be unique. Look at the pictures they use and the words they describe their businesses with—both elements contribute to your brand.

3. Figure out which of your personality traits are most valuable to your business.
The best way to do this is to think about your target audience and the reassurance it needs to go from being interested in doing business with you to making the commitment.

Some of these traits are likely to be those expected of any business worth working with—fair pricing, good service, and the list goes on and on. So you also need to think about the factors that differentiate you from your competition. You also want to focus on factors that make you appealing to the people you want to hire you.

This is a pretty tall order, but try out your brand on your target audience and see what resonates with them before “carving it into stone”—which, in the case of your brand, means before you print any marketing materials. Test your ideas out with temporary materials or by incorporating them into an elevator pitch at your next networking event. At the very least, call up some of your best clients and run your ideas by them.

4. Consider creating a Logo Design as the face of your business.
If you use a photo of yourself as the primary graphic for your business, it suggests you’re always going to take personal care of all client accounts—which isn’t a message you should send if you’re planning to grow your business or hire subcontractors or assistants. Using a photo also brings in the vanity aspect again. “Look at me, I’m here to do business with you.” may not be the best message to send.

If you keep these 4 steps in mind and create a brand that leaves you and your vanity out of the picture, your business won’t come across as a wicked witch. Instead, you’ll create a brand that will make your business “the fairest one of all” to your best clients and help you live happily ever after.

Free Background Music

The advent of media and multimedia in the education and corporate arena has been a revolution of its own kind. And with this has come the era of presenting information in attractive packages or presentations. But such presentations are not complete only with the content or design success formulae.

Free Sounds effects or background music is an important part of these multimedia presentations, which include presentations at corporate seminars. This is because music and sound effects have a soothing effect on the eyes and nerves that have been tiring under the tirade of constant registration of data. This helps you make a sale in a corporate presentation or attain the required grades in case of an educational or student presentation.

Imagine the film An Inconvenient Truth, or any other corporate presentation that does not have background music complementing the waves of data and charts being displayed. Dull and boring, isn’t it? Well, you can very well understand that when successful films fall flat on their face without Free Backgrounds music or  sound fx supporting them, then what may happen to your small time corporate presentation without the same?

But here another problem crops up. How and where will you get quality royalty free music that meet the requirements and more importantly, the standards you have set? We mentioned royalty free music’ because we all know how hard and lengthy the process of acquiring a license for implementing authentic music can be. Hiring professional musicians or sound engineers to do the job for you is even more hurting for your budget.

This is where we, at Audio Micro step in! We have a huge reserve of online stock music that includes sound effects and other production music or music cues that will help add the luster to your presentation.

We have free stock music and Free Sounds for all kinds of presentations that may be constructed by the users. But if you are not sure about what kind of music you might want to use in your presentation, let our experienced stock musicians and sound engineers devise the same for you!

We have different categories of presentation music available as royalty free music and you can pick and choose as you like. Music for diverse presentations that range from boardroom presentation to presentations for an English class of your nursery students, we have every corner covered.

You should always keep in mind that stock music available online is not always of the quality that may be defined as good. But at Audio Micro, we keep in mind that often the clients reputation is at stake with the presentation he is making. Therefore, our free music is not of the poor quality that online free music usually is.

Now the next time you make a presentation or prepare to instill music or sounds in it, take our help. We cannot promise you a standing ovation for your presentation, but we can ensure that the sound effects and music used in the presentation will keep the whole congregation engaged in rapt attention!

Interview with Animator and Artist Norman Engel

Flash AnimationsAbout Flash Animations Guide: Tell us a little about who you are. Who do you work for? What job do you do?

Norman: I consider myself an artist. Animation is just one of the outlets that I have for my expression. At the present time, I am the lead animation instructor for the Art Institute of Houston. Previous to this, I worked in the entertainment industry doing animation for television programs, and commercials.

About Animation Guide: How long have you been working in the animation industry?

Norman: In one way or another, I have been doing this for the past 20 years. Yes, I was animating before the industry started using computers……Makes me sound old huh?

About Animation Guide: Name a few of the projects you’ve worked on in the past.

Norman: This is always a hard question for me to answer, mainly because I have worked on so many different productions, and it is weird for me to toot my horn when it comes to past jobs. A few that come to mind are, Mary Lou Rettons Flip Flop Shop, (PBS) Music videos and promotions for countless artists, including Willie Nelson, Clay Walker, Bee Gees, Styx, Queensryche, Korn, Brittney Spears, ect…the list is too long to continue. Basically if you watched MTV, VH1, or CMT you have seen my work.

About Animation Guide: Do you have any future projects planned?

Norman: I plan to do a couple of fine art animations; you know the weird intellectually challenging type of things.

About Animation Guide: What prompted you to move into a career in animation? How did you go about pursuing it?

Norman: During my high school years, I saw Star Wars in the theater. It was so cool, I knew that I wanted to do something like that. My first animation was done on 8mm film in a high school art class.

About Animation Guide: What kind of education did it take to get you where you are today? What’s your alma mater?

Norman: At this time I prefer 3D Studio Max, although, I like Maya an awful lot as well.

About Animation Guide: Apples or oranges, tea or coffee: do you prefer traditional animation, or computer animation?

Norman: I prefer oranges over apples and coffee over tea. As for traditional or computer animation, there is no difference to me. It is all the same, only the tools are different. It’s kind of like asking which type of drawing that you prefer, ones done with a 2b pencil, or ones done with charcoal. It depends on how well done the drawing is, not the medium chosen by the artist.

About Animation Design Training Guide: Are you currently working on, or have you worked on in the past, any independent animation projects? Tell us more.

Norman: Of course, although none were big film projects. Usually straight to video or for television. Literally every animation is an independent project at the beginning.

About Animation Guide: Can you offer any advice to those interested in producing their own independent animations?

Norman: Persevere, finish the project, and expect to spend some money trying to get it published or distributed. Most small productions companies fail after a year. It must be a labor of love. If you in it for the money or fame, forget it.

About Animation Guide: What about those just considers starting in Flash Animations? Any educational or career advice, memorable lessons, etc?

Norman: You need to be an artist not a computer geek. Get a Bachelors Degree that is heavy in the fine arts. Study art and draw all the time. Don’t just look at computer art. You need to be as diverse as possible.

About Animation Guide: Do you ever appear at conferences? What animation events and conferences would you recommend?

Norman: I have never been very interested in conferences or conventions.

Free Fonts Basics : Introduction to Fonts and Typography and Type

As a graphic designer, probably the most frustrating aspect of graphic design is FONTS!!! They could just make me scream some times. This article will guide you through the different types of fonts, such as bitmapped and scalable fonts…and will also guide you through installing fonts, deleting fonts, and managing fonts. Find out more by reading these basics of Free Fonts article.

A font is actually a graphic shape, for example a triangle, which can be used to create a typographic character. A group of fonts of similar design can be used to create a typeface. A set of typefaces in different sizes and weights, created from the same group of fonts, is a type family. These terms are often misused, the term “font” being used to mean a typeface.
Free FontsA font is actually a graphic shape, for example a triangle, which can be used to create a typographic character. A group of fonts of similar design can be used to create a typeface. A set of typefaces in different sizes and weights, created from the same group of fonts, is a type family. These terms are often misused, the term “font” being used to mean a typeface.

Scalable Fonts

Scalable fonts are stored as outlines of the characters along with rules (known as “hints”) used when displaying the font. This allows the fonts to be displayed over a wider range of sizes and still look good. Scalable fonts can be used for both the computer screen and the printer, making it more likely that the print will closely match what’s seen on the computer screen.

A font file will usually contain a set of fonts in several different point sizes. A font’s size is the height of the characters in “points”. There are 72 points per inch. The font size refers to the height of characters when printed on paper. Unlike paper, computer screens come in different sizes and can be set to different screen resolutions. Also many applications allow the user to magnify the document; therefore, the size of type on the screen will only rarely be the same as the point size.

Adobe PostScript and TrueType Fonts

Adobe invented the first scalable font technology called “PostScript”, but PostScript basically became obsolete when Microsoft provided its “TrueType” scalable fonts for no extra charge with the Windows operating system. One important feature of TrueType fonts is the ability to embed the font into the document itself.

The fonts used in a document are embedded in an encrypted form that prevents the recipient of a document from removing the font and using it without paying for it. The font developer can configure the font to be read-only, where the receiver of the document with the font may view and print it but not edit it, or read-write, where the receiver may edit, as well as view and print the document.

How To Install a Font

Bitmapped fonts are stored in files with the extension .fon. TrueType fonts are stored as font descriptions in files with the extension .ttf. To install a font, simply copy the font file to the c:\Windows\fonts or :\WINNT\fonts folder. You could store a font file in a different folder and include a shortcut to the font file in the fonts folder.

To view a font, simply navigate to the fonts folder and double-click on a font file. You can also view fonts by selecting Start | Settings | Control Panel and opening the Free Fonts utility. The Fonts utility provides many extra features, such as the ability to select similar fonts.

When you select the “font” menu item from within an application, the Font dialog box will display a list of the the fonts stored in the fonts folder. The Font dialog box in some applications will actually display the typefaces for you to choose from.

Managing Fonts and Graphics Software Applications

When you install some applications, like graphics programs, hundreds of fonts may be installed along with them. To keep the number of fonts manageable, you may want to delete fonts you don’t use. To delete a font, simply delete the font file, but remember, if you used that font in a document, when you open or print that document, Windows will be required to select the closest matching font to the deleted font, and you may get unexpected results.

System Fonts

System fonts are used by the Windows operating system for text like window titles and menu items. To determine which Free Fonts are being used by the system, select Start | Settings | Control panel and open the Display utility. In the Display Properties dialog box, select the Appearance tab. In the Item: drop-down list, select items that use text, like “Title Bar”, “Menu”, “Message Box”, and so on. The name of the font used for each item will appear in the Font: text box. Don’t delete a font being used by the system.

How Graphic Design Affects Our Daily Life

  • Will Smith stares out from the rubbles of New York City with beasts fighting in the streets of Big Apple, circa 2009.
  • Bubbles in beer glass play the music machine for the beer is ‘alive inside’.
  • Freshly picked strawberries and whole wheat grain peer out from a spoonful of breakfast cereal.

We are familiar with these sights. We notice them while driving, watching television or even at the breakfast table. We wonder at their sheer creativity and design excellence. These have evolved over the years, became a part of our lives and often helped us cross the bridge between ignoring a product and buying it. In modern terms, we call this ‘graphic design’.

Definition:

Graphic Design Tutorials is a mode of communication using visual medium. It uses images and typography to simplify information and addresses the receiver in a cognitive level and appeals to their sense of aesthetics and design.

Design TutorialsThough graphic design is often understood to be used only for advertising, its uses are extensive. The fields of administration, education and entertainment utilize graphic design at some level to convey information.

History:

Although historians do not concur on the first citation, the ancient cave paintings dating back to 14,000BC had set forth man’s journey in the field of visual communication. The Industrial Revolution of the 1820s paved the path for modern graphic design. Early 20th century America and post-war Europe contributed immensely towards its development and graphic design got professional recognition.

Tools:

To begin with, a creative mind and skill to observe, analyze and plan. Then, basic design tools like paper, pencil, marker to a computer. Finally the expertise in sophisticated software like Photoshop, Illustrator, In design, Corel Draw, Flash and Dreamweaver is your key to the amazing world of graphic design.

Why Graphic Design?

Your industrial requirement will dictate your decision to utilize graphic design. Do you want to promote something? Create a logo or establish an identity for your organization? Want to teach addition to six-year old kids? Put up signs for your new store? Graphic Design Training can help you with all that in any medium – on print, billboards or the web.

But before you hunt for a design company or a designer, remember:

  • No designer will understand your company the way you would.
  • All outsourcing work comes with its package of time-cost continuum.
  • Graphic designers are expensive.

Tips:

However, a picture does speak thousand words and you may not have the time or the creative resource within your company to effectively communicate your product to the customer. So how do you ensure getting what you want at an affordable price? Consider the following tips:

  • Identify your exact requirement, your budget and the medium that best reaches your target audience.
  • Ask friends for recommendations
  • Visit websites.
  • Review the company’s portfolio.
  • Ask for references.
  • Consider outsourcing your work overseas for a cheaper rate.
  • Discuss your requirement in details.
  • Get a quote.
  • Ensure that legal requirements are fulfilled, printing costs covered and copyright issues taken care of before signing the contract.
  • Regularly review work till you approve the final design.
  • Make staggered payments and pay the final 25% only on completion.

Major Companies and Cost:

There are excellent US-based graphic design companies. Your  Design Need Group, India, yourrdesignneeds.com provide free all Design Tutorials in graphic design with great ink Resource.

The Future:

In future, graphic design may veer more towards a mechanism to execute marketing strategies than remain as a tool to convey information. This may eventually corrode original ideas. However for now, graphic design is the thing of today. Marvel at it, learn it or utilize it, for you can’t ignore it!

Free Sounds for Restaurants

Free SoundsWhen did you last visit the neighborhood restaurant for a romantic dinner with your spouse? Remember how your mood turned mushy with the beats of the soft music that was playing in the Free Backgrounds? This is the importance of music in restaurants or for that matter bars, pubs and other food joints all over the world. Only Russia professes a genre in music that is labeled restaurant music, but it is a phenomenon no restaurateur can ignore if making money and expanding the business is a priority.

Blaring T.V. sets and radios that blurt irrelevant music or audio that does not match with the preset ambience of the restaurant is a disaster to the client-alluring image and your taste as a restaurateur to say the least. Remember that people come to dine in your restaurant or to spend some mom ents together with their friends or loved ones. With our Stock Photography and royalty free music tracks, we help you restrict your services and music well off the line of privacy the clients deserve.

Quality in Typefaces & Fonts

Free FontsWhat makes for quality type? What’s the difference between typeface quality and font quality? Who makes quality typefaces/fonts? Today’s post is partly an education for the beginner, but also a plea to my colleagues at other companies for more testing.

One of the things that attracted me to work in the type group at Adobe, when I was dreaming of such things a decade or more ago, was my belief that Adobe made the best Free Fonts. Now, of course, I didn’t know all the world’s type foundries then – and with the ever-growing number of font vendors out there, I still don’t. However, Adobe certainly makes very good fonts, and my concern with quality has continued to this day….

First, let’s go ahead and make that distinction between typeface and fonts. A typeface for my purposes is the actual aesthetic design, and may encompass a range of styles and be implemented in multiple ways. A font, in this digital era, is a specific file (or in the older formats sometimes a pair of files) that instantiate that design on your computer.

For example, Times is a typeface. Linotype’s Times type family in digital form comprises four Free Fonts, a regular, italic, bold and bold italic. Monotype’s Times New Roman may or may not be the same typeface (a debatable point, as there are some tiny aesthetic differences), but is certainly a different set of digital fonts.

So typeface quality is about how the design does in terms of aesthetics, and also the optical principles of perception.

Some explanation of these optical principles may be in order. They are illustrated in the graphic below, an edited screen shot of Myriad Pro Regular from the FontLab Studio 5 font editing program.

How Can you Learn Photoshop on the Web With so Many Free Tutorials

Photoshop TutorialsYou sit down at your computer one day and you decide that you want to learn how to use Photoshop Brushes and become a pro at it. Then you actually load up the program and you realize that it is far more complex than you could have ever imagined. Photoshop is not a simple program to learn by any means and takes a very long time to truly master. So now you are staring at Photoshop and decide that you want to turn to the internet for some help. Upon beginning your search you hop on a search engine and begin to try to look for tutorials. What you then find though is that there are hundreds if not thousands of tutorials on the subject, free ones too. So which do you choose and how do you learn?

The best way to learn Photoshop Tutorials is to take it step-by-step. You are not going to sit down in one night open up a bunch of tutorials and expect to learn it by the following morning. This is something that is just not going to happen even if you are an absolute genius. What you have to do is you have to find tutorials that can work for you and that you can understand. You can do this by looking over the internet and checking various tutorial sites and seeing if they make sense to you.

Some of the free tutorials on the internet are not the best sources of information. Sometimes they can be useful but if you cannot understand them then you may have to seek help in other locations. Another option would be to join a forum or community where you can talk to people who use Photoshop Brushes and they can then help you with certain things.

A third option would be to go out and buy a book about the subject matter. There are many Photoshop tutorial books out there which can help you learn the basics and even advanced techniques about Photoshop. Most of these books are available online or in any book store such as Barnes and Noble or Borders.

All of this is meaningless though if you are not able to have the patience to take it step by step. You have to be able to sit down and learn little things and master them one at a time. If you can do this then you can learn the basics and build from there. It is like a foundation that has to be laid.

You can use the free tutorials for the basic stuff to get a better idea about what you are doing but once you have your solid foundation you may want to look elsewhere. Join a forum or community such as the one at PhotoShopTalent.com and gain friends who are seeking the same knowledge you are and then you will be able to fully master the art of Photoshop Tutorials.
