First in the video series of what branding is all about and why anyone running a business should understand it.
Hi there, I’m Dixie Dawg, the black Labrador and I work here at Smart Ideas Design; well I don’t work really, I lie there snoozing all day having had my morning walk only getting off my bed for the occasional apple core that is offered – any food is good food as far as I’m concerned – I am a Labrador after all! Oh I also get off my bed for a wee wee but as you can see below… I don’t always make it but that’s not my fault….
So getting back to the point in question, has anyone seen Charlie? He’s such a cheeky young snapper, he’s only 4 and he’s so naughty sometimes with lots of cheek. I have to keep him in order I can tell you! Here he is here on the right sharing my bed!!! I’m not happy I can tell you!
The peeps here at Smart Ideas thought it would be a really good idea to talk about mine and Charlies adventures, so they decided to capture it in a comic strip which has been launched in the February issue of Smart Talk.

At last, we have revamped our website and by revamp we mean revamp and not a revolution – hey, we’re designers! And we like to shout that we are designers… so we’re constantly updating, revamping, adding new case studies on.
Tell us what you think? You can see the new site here.
We found this article really interesting and perhaps the most interesting change of all has come with the Apple logo. Although the Pepsi logo has rather a similar look to Coca Cola back in 1906! I wonder if there were any copyright lawyers kept busy then?
One thing we all remarked on in the studio is how simplicity is where it’s at these days. So for any of you who are on the re-brand trail, please think simplicity.

Manchester based creative agency, Dorothy, just showed us an ongoing series of paintings it’s working on which display corporate logos but with all the type and lettering removed to leave beautiful flat colourful shapes behind.
