Crazy Fruits Animation

Today we want to show cool fruit animation created by designer from Ukraine Alexander Zapadenko. His series “Crazy fruits” cosists of several animated fruits. “At first glance, it is quite common fruits. Their distinctive feature is that they do not want to be eaten. They will plead you watch you with sad eyes, but do not believe them.” Animation is quite simple – each gif image has only 13 frames but looks great. Have fun!

Perfect Examples Of Branding Design

Brand:

  • More than a name or logo
  • All the combined impressions and experiences associated with a particular company, good or service
  • Something consumers relate to on rational and emotional levels

Brand Identity:

The following elements work together to project a consistent image and are instantly recognizable.

– Name – words, letters, or numbers that can be spoken
– Symbols or logos used with the name on promotional products – cannot be spoken
– Trade characters or personified symbols may also be used

A Brand is Built Around Values:

  • Characteristics and values represent what a business or product stands for.
  • These “intangibles” connect with consumers in a meaningful way.
  • Brand cues remind consumers of values and qualities.
  • Brand personality is the essence of the brand and encompasses values and emotional connections.

Brand is the Customer’s Total Experience:

  • Touch Points – Opportunities to connect with customers and reinforce brand values
  • Every business – large and small – is a brand with touch points
  • The brand promise must deliver on consumer expectations

Levels of brand Loyalty:

– Brand recognition:  know something about it
– Brand preference:  prefer a particular but will buy another if it is not available
– Brand insistence:  positively want one brand and one brand only

Branding Internationally:

  • Requires businesses to incorporate international considerations
  • Requires names that translate into other languages
  • Requires sensitivity to customs, cultures, and values
  • May even require changes to actual product itself
  • May use product extensions

Challenges that the Internet has provided:

  • Limited customer interaction, less loyalty, makes building brand on the internet more difficult
  • More time spent researching/comparing products than buying
  • Innovation and first-rate customer service needed
  • Strong, established brands don’t need to spend lots of money to attract people
  • Brand is a requirement for Internet businesses

Now that you have an idea that a brand is much more than a logo, it’s time to focus on the design part. The examples we have for you below are on point. The following companies have done an incredible job at monetizing and setting the tone for their brand. As you plan out to create a logo, think about how it will be used. Will it be used on social networks, websites, packaging, business cards, stickers, clothing, pens, USB’s, engraved on products, CD’s, notebooks, and any other things? You need to plan things out, because the colors will be different. Online you will most likely use RBG colors for the logo, while on packaging, business, cards, letter head, and other printing materials will be CMYK. This is a vital part of the process, because if you use lets say an extra bright green it will not be bright at all when printed.
