Look to Your Expertise for Ways to Pivot During the Pandemic

By Sammy Bliss on Jun. 25 2020, 12:30 PM

“Normal” is on an indefinite hiatus.

 

That’s a reality many people and businesses have had to accept during the coronavirus pandemic. In some ways, we’ve all been forced to redefine the routines and processes that were so essential to our lives as recently as this winter.

 

But just because the world and the way we operate might look a little different, that doesn’t mean there’s a need to abandon everything familiar. While their services might not completely align with what the public needs right now, forward-thinking businesses must look for gaps that their expertise can fill to stay both useful and relevant during this time.

3 Ways Event Design Helps Tell Your Brand Story

By Eddie Poon on Apr. 30 2020, 11:45 AM

Event design isn’t just the way something looks. It’s the way those visual elements work together to convey a brand story that people want to learn more about.

 

An event isn’t just the hall or center that hosts it. Nor are events limited to the displays, booths, and workshops that compose them. Events are those things and so much more, all working in conjunction to convey something much more significant — a brand story.
