Trade Show Exhibits: ENGAGEMENT in the Age of Enlightenment!

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Feb 28, 2017 11:54:21 AM

 

 

When speaking at meetings or being engaged in conversations at conventions and trade shows, the conventional advice for preparing is to tell yourself you're great, there's no way you can fail.
The more effective stratagem: Instead of saying "I'm the best and I can do it," ask "How can I do it?" It's called "interrogative self-talk," and has been shown to be more effective than positive statements alone. Asking questions leads to answers. It gives you strategies for carrying out your task right at the top of your mind, and reminds you of your motivation. Source: To Sell Is Human: The Surprising Truth About Moving Others

Open Booth Design: The Nuance of Numbers

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Jun 13, 2014 4:35:00 PM

“Whenever a man can get hold of numbers, they are invaluable: if correct, they assist in informing his own mind, but they are still more useful in deluding the minds of others. Numbers are the masters of the weak, but the slaves of the strong.”
Charles Babbage, Passages from the Life of a Philosopher

2014 Trends In Sight: Design Your Exhibit With This Insight!

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Nov 22, 2013 12:15:00 PM

 

 

While technology has provided convenience, flexibility, and global connectivity in our daily lives, it has also made us long for the warmth of more tactile experiences — things with a human touch. This creative research from Corbis Images suggest we’re recognizing the need to slow down and unplug, allowing time for low-tech activities, creative pursuits, and relationships.

 

We are living in a techno-centric era. Technology is firmly planted in our lives. As geography and time zones blurr giving access to 24/7 media, communication and entertainment – as global citizens we are tired, stressed out and chaotic than ever before. Technology is supposed to give us the opportunity to be creative and constructive. Instead, as a nation we suffer from massive ADD in the grips of imminent nervous breakdown. As a result, stress reduction has become a top priority.

Graphic Design: Evoke Emotion | Assassination of a Famous Nut Artist!

SETTING THE SCENE — THE GUIDANCE OF GROTESQUE

 

This self-portrait was based on a drawing made by Arneson’s son Kregg when the artist and his first wife was in the midst of a marital crisis. Although the representation echoes Renaissance bust of mortally wounded martyred saints, the wildly exaggerated grotesque details—such as the exploding gun, bloody knife and arrow, and globs of blood and snot—recall the style of cartoon and comic strips.

The sculpture is one of Arneson’s most emotionally expressive self-portrait. He was prolific in creating self-portraits using photographs, mirrors, and drawings. Each expression seemed to reveal a different emotion. His self-referential portraits, that are iconic and humorous, sends us on a mission to explore universal concepts of feeling, sentiments, reaction and response.

Modern Booth Design: Art of Enticement!

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Jan 18, 2013 12:23:00 PM


We are living in exciting times. The concept of traditional marketing is being challenged every day. Fresh waves of ideas are consistently hitting the shores. The blogosphere is inundated with articles describing the fact that brand equity cannot be linked to actual firm equityor any other recognized financial metric. There is a huge uproar that in a world infused with social-media madness; "traditional marketing and sales not only doesn't work so well, it doesn't make sense." A lot of speculation rolls around the market place as to what is going to replace the old medium; new possibilities of peer influence-based, community-oriented marketing hold much greater promise for creating sustained growth through authentic customer relationships.”

Face to Face Marketing: The Millennials Have Arrived.

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Aug 27, 2012 10:29:00 AM


"Are you ready to communicate with them?"

Technology is the language and the fashion of this generation. Extremely savvy and constantly wired this generation could be the most educated in American history (according to a study conducted by Pew Research Center). Being "digital natives", they are on a path of constant learning, upgrading and sharing. In her book, Chasing Youth Culture And Getting It Right, Tina Wells discusses how crucial technology is in their lives. "If you want to engage with Millennials, you must understand the role technology plays in their lives. When we get scared of it as marketers, we tend to disconnect with our consumers. Technology doesn’t kill magazines or newspapers or music. What hurts these media is when we decide to stop innovating. Content is king, and always will be. Create an engaging experience with content, no matter what the platform, and consumers will engage"
