  1. Instant Credibility by Collaborating With Other Brands

    The easiest way to achieve a desired perception by your customer is to create custom products in conjunction with them. In other words, aligning your brand with the cool kid in town. The coolness of that kid will rub off on your brand and you will get a very positive brand image.

    The hard part of course is convincing the brand leader in your desired category to agree to work with you. If they do though, the results can be quite spectacular. Take for example Lego, Ferrari & Shell teamed up and created these amazing unique toys that are only available through petrol stations in Singapore & Hong Kong.

  2. Iphone Photo Comparison 1 Through 6

    The quality of photographs taken with the Iphone has got to be one of the biggest selling points for most people when they are considering purchasing the Iphone. This short blog, once again is not an opinion piece on the new Iphone 6 but a factual comparison on the quality of photos taken using the original first Iphone compared to the current Iphone 6.

    Due to the popularity of my previous blog article on the ergonomics of the Iphone 6 and why a stylus would be a good idea for the larger Iphone 6 plus this has encouraged me to do a follow up post. This time on photographs.

  5. Loyalty Gifts that are a Bad Idea

    This little free offer by a Pizza Hut Franchisee in Melbourne Australia has raised an eyebrow or two. A Pizza hut branch in Mt Waverley decided that it needed a boost in sales so it decided to offer a deal which included 1 free small animal to customers who bought 10 pizzas.

    Free Gift Offer With every 10 Pizzas

    The Pizza Hut Franchise located in Mt Waverley decided to do something dramatically different to most normal special promotions. In conjunction with a local pet store, it offered a free small pet with every 10th pizza that a customer purchases. Now I can only assume that the definition of a small pet would be either a hamster or a guinea pig. As you can appreciate many people were outraged by this idea.

    Personally speaking I would have been happy with just a free can of coke with every 10 pizzas purchased, or better still just a little freebie promotional keyring

  6. Everyday Design Influences

    Upon learning that acclaimed designer Marc Newson has joined forces with Apple, we got to thinking about the extent to which leading designers influence our everyday lives. After all, from morning through till evening, the products we interact with have been designed by someone. The better designed the promotional giveaway, the more productive and memorable our interaction with it is. Good design can not only make or break your commercial merchandising success, but it can extend your brand's influence and style in ways you might not have even imagined.


    • Prioritize good design in promotional products to create a positive first impression and increase brand recognition.
    • Focus on usability and ergonomics for a better user experience, ultimately leading to long-lasting brand loyalty.
    • Encourage word-of-mouth marketing through impressive

  7. Super Hero Branded Coins

    I came across the beautiful Superman branded coins. These coins are real coins produced by the Canadian Mint. Originally a complete Superman set was produced last year to celebrate the caped crusader's 75th anniversary. This year they have released more of the same thing and the results are absolutely spectacular.

    Superman Coins from the Canadian Mint

    The interesting thing about these coins is that they are a perfect example of how a well placed design or graphic can increase the price of a product. In these examples the increase in price is quite dramatic. A $10 coin for example is worth $10. With a Superman graphic, they then sell for $70, which in my mind is still great value, considering these are limited edition coins which look fabulous.

  10. A Custom Cardboard Desk Item for Schools

    A sheet of cardboard does not mean much to most people. To many it is simply one more thing that needs to be thrown out or recycled. In India though a sheet of cardboard can mean much more. The simple act of sitting behind a desk to work and study is not something we think about, but in India many school children do not have access to something as basic as that. Many simply sit on the floor which often leads to poor eyesight, bad posture and bad handwriting.

    The Solution? Custom Made Desks

    A non for profit organization ( decided to do something about it. Having a desk after all will help children study and learn. They thought about the issue and in collaboration with designers came up with a desk that is made from a sheet of cardboard that was sourced from recycled and discarded
