I’m a creative person, I absolutely love creating things. While I was at Automattic I always wanted to try creative/fun advertising but it never worked out. Now at teelaunch I’m getting to run with some of the ideas I’ve been storing up for a while. Something I think is really powerful is video and I have been working on integrating it into our marketing plans.
I found out about the amazing folks over at Studio Bolland through the guys at WooThemes and they do amazing work. I’ve worked on a number of videos with them but I wanted to share my favorite one so far. I’m basically trying to let people know to double down on mugs in 2016 and here are some of the reasons I think they are awesome.
It turned out really well and I can’t wait to start running ads with it to see how well it converts. I also have some crazier ideas that I hope to run with soon. Stay tuned to see how it all turns out 🙂 .
I’m always on the search for really neat things and I came across this great button club at inch x inch. Every month they send you really amazing buttons produced by busy beaver buttons and designed by some of the best designers in the world. The club is only $30/year and the profits go to various charities. I think its a really neat concept and if you are into well designed goods & charities you really should check it out.
I work a bunch of events and I’m always trying to find ways to explain difficult concepts in an easy way. One thing that always confuses people is the difference between WordPress.com and WordPress.org.
On my daily Dribbble search I came across a guy named Josh Quick who specializes in how-to type graphics and I got the idea to hire him to create a graphic to explain the difference.
I think it turned out pretty well and if you have a use for it please do whatever you want with it. It’s licensed under CC zero.
