As a society, it’s no secret that scientific innovation is everywhere — including, potentially, in the retail sector. In this video, Cisco demonstrates their idea for the future of shopping using current technology.
The use of a user-specific video to help shoppers ‘try on’ new clothes has the potential to alter the retail shopping experience. Rather than literally trying clothes on, Cisco shows us that we could ‘try on’ different designs and then hand-pick the color we like without having to hunt through the aisles and carry a bundle of clothes into a dressing room.
Although this illustration of how Cisco may help alter the retail landscape, Cisco’s ad is just one illustration of how they can personalize the B2C relationship. It also makes any business ponder the question, ‘How close are we to our clients? And could our bottom line benefit from Cisco’s more personalized approach?’
Great strategy from Burger King, “Home of the Whopper”!
Burger King has taken live footage of an experiment in which the much-loved Whopper has been removed from the menu. It’s a hilarious strategy and fascinating to witness the reactions of stunned clients upon hearing the inexplicable news that the Whopper is no more.
If you’re a Whopper lover, what would you feel if you walked into your local Burger King only to be told, “Sorry, the Whopper has been discontinued”? Shock? Anger? Disbelief? Sorrow?
Of course, the Whopper is alive and well, but for the purposes of an ad campaign, it’s always a great strategy to show actual clients reacting to the possibility that your staple product is no longer available. Ads so often tell us about special deals, or work the family angle, but to see stunned clients react with genuine concern that they may get to eat another Whopper is genius.
Revamping Terra Mia’s brand was both challenging and extremely rewarding. The main idea was to create a style that made their high-end salad dressings look like gifts, making their bottles slick enough to bring to a dinner party and not look out of place next to the wine.
When we were first approached by Terra Mia, their products already had a growing clientele and a positive reputation for the home-made freshness of their dressings; but they where looking to move beyond the local Mexican market and upgrade their brand. In short, Terra Mia knew they had a high-quality product and they were now looking to gain recognition as having one of the finer products on the global market.
They also knew their bare-bones branding wouldn’t cut it, and the resulting shift to colourful labels and a classy black-and-white logo has given Terra Mia the strong branding they were looking for so their products stand out in the supermarket and look delectable on the dinner table.
Goldon Product Development First is a company that specializes in providing operations management services to companies in the aerospace industry. Our task was to overhaul the brand’s visual appeal. In conceiving and creating a new image, we were instructed to develop a corporate yet modern look that would work for all aspects of their online presence as well as their print materials.
To get to the bottom of what Goldon had in mind, we worked side by side to find the best approach for their particular niche in the marketplace. It was during these initial strategy meetings with senior management that we decided to change the company’s name from the bland and awkward acronym GPDF to Goldon Product Development First.
Once we had the right name in place, we shifted to the task of developing their logo, website, and print materials (brochures, business cards, etc.), as well as stationery materials for some of their clients.
One of the website’s important features is that it uses LinkedIn as a key component to display their team and introduce potential clients to their areas of expertise.
Finally, it was crucial for us to provide Goldon with a flexible website to enable them to add new banners to the site, post new job opportunities, and modify any information or photos.
