It better be cool - Marketing 101

Make me stop and take a look. 

It really seems as though everyone has stepped up their game, and that's a good thing. There have been numerous pieces this week that have caught my eye - I'll be sharing some more with you soon, but right now it is time to pass the praise.

First off. LD Photography. 

I stumbled upon the Lauren Denver blog this week, and I am really glad that I did. I think she is is an extremely talented, young photographer. I don't know her personally, but when people have talent like this they deserve to be recognized.

I would really like this photo to be hanging in my house. On canvas. 

I love this, and now I can't wait for it to snow again.


I have already talked about once in my Marketing 101 posts. Now, they have done it again. does amazing farm and business signs. I love the modern twist on this piece. I think farms and ranches could use a little bit more of creative twist sometimes. 

Visit the facebook page for more photos of this sign. 

And to end it, Bella Spur Innovative Marketing

I have always looked up to Laura Bodell and Jamie-Rae Pittman. First in the showring, second because they are creative geniuses and third well they always had awesome hair and style - it's true. The girls have recently launched their facebook page and it's definitely worth checking out. My favorites so far. 

I love this logo. Maybe it's due to my love of red cows?

This ad is awesome. There is so much going on, and it speaks to so many things, yet it's simple. Something that doesn't always happen in advertising. 

So what do these three advertising pieces have in common? They all stopped and made me look, not because they were using the splashiest colors, or a shocking photo, or ridiculous statement to sell something. It is because this is quality work, that has an artistic approach. Good job folks, keep up the great work.
