Instead of having a North Austin Influencers‘ mixer this month, we have been invited to go south on July 30th and participate in the 7th Annual Summer Shindig organized by Pierpont Communications, one of the largest independent public relation agencies in the southwest.
Hosted by seven organizations, Summer Shindig is the best place in town to meet new connections while enjoying Cedar Door’s famous mini-Mexican Martinis and tasty Tex Mex appetizers.
North Austin Influencers™ is created and organized by MUNDU Media. The group’s mission is to bring people together to exchange ideas, learn through educational workshops and mixers using the expertise of top industry professionals while providing marketing opportunities to businesses.
As Pantone, the global authority on color, celebrates its 50th anniversary; it is a good time to reflect on the influence of color way beyond fashion. If used consistently through a brand’s marketing, the use of certain colors can trigger the senses and certain memories. The use of two or more colors can generate brand awareness any time these color combinations are used. It is particularly important that colors are consistent throughout branding, whether used in web sites, newsletters, business cards, e-mail interaction, and especially in logos.
The strategy of color selection is important depending on what the target audience is and/or what the company will stand for. Companies that tend to be trend setters and can be more versatile about changing their image frequently, follow the present color trend. Whether you’re going for earthy hues to show your earth conscience or bolder colors like red to stand out to a different viewership, this detail is one that needs much consideration.
