A Mask That Stands For Who You Are: The Art of Logo Design | PBS

Robin Good: Excellent PBS video illustrating through the faces and voices of several brand designers the history and role of logo design. From prehistorical times until today logo design has been always an activity characterized by the need to communicate easily and effectively what a person or an organization is about and (in some cases) the character and the traits its stands for (think of aristocratic or noble shields).

"Utilizing a silent vocabulary of colors, shapes, and typography, logo designers give a visual identity to companies and organizations of all types."

"Logo designers need to have a sense of what the company wants his personality to be, and then it "manufactures" this mask... and the logo is essentualy a mask, an identifier, that stands in for who you are"

Featured in the video:

Great visual gallery of examples commented in real-time by those who made them. 8/10


(Thanks to MarketingHits for uncovering this gem)

La imagen que una empresa pueda tener se refleja en su logotipo o frase característica, se considera como un personal bran ya que es la imagen que la empresa da al mundo de lo que hace.

Personal Branding: Write Your Story Before Someone Else Does

Personal Branding: Write Your Story Before Someone Else Does | Personal Branding World |

From the original article by Merry Richter: "Your brand is the sum total of your reputation, both personal and professional.

It’s a representation of your skills, character, trustworthiness, dedication, honesty, work ethic, appearance, and personality.

Basically every aspect of yourself that employers, co-workers, friends and family care about…everything that makes you YOU."

Robin Good: But the issue is, how can you take control, steer and direct your personal activities online so that they contribute to build up a "brand" that reflects your key strength and abilities?

"It’s scary to realize that some portion of your brand is being determined and communicated by other people, but in the age of hyper-social sharing, commenting and endorsing on the sites we all know and love, that’s exactly what’s happening.

So now, more than ever, it’s essential to take control of your brand. Write your own story before someone else writes it for you.

The first aspect of this is fairly obvious: live up to your own hype.

Deliver on the promises (implied and otherwise) that you’ve made..."

Basic. 7/10

Tener una imagen frente al mundo no solo refleja quien eres como personas, tambien es necesario para una empresa para que los clientes persivan la valides de la misma.

Credibility Builders: 9 Things To Pay Attention To

Credibility Builders: 9 Things To Pay Attention To | Personal Branding World |

Robin Good: If you are interested in improving your credibility / reputation online here is a good list of recommendations from John Follis at SmallBizTrends.

From the original article: "Whatever your business, product, or service, credibility is key. It’s also true with your personal reputation.

On that note, the information that appears, or doesn’t appear, whenever your name is searched on the Internet is a litmus test of your personal and professional credibility.

It’s called G-cred.

To help with that G-cred, here are 9 things you can do:"

Your goal with any online profile should be one thing - to gain credibility! Showcase your success, and fill in ALL the blanks.

Paola Cinti's curator insight, May 18, 2013 3:21 AM

Qualunque sia la vostra attività, prodotto o servizio, la credibilità è la base della vostra reputazione personale. In tal senso, le informazioni visualizzate o non visualizzate, ogni volta che il vostro nome viene cercato su Internet, sono una cartina di tornasole della credibilità personale e professionale. Si chiama G-cred .
