Rapid Distraction Storytelling

I saw an Acura ad tonight that left me rivited. Frankly, I’m not sure it’s all that great an ad in the bigger picture, but the editing and storytelling was genius.

Google Analytics Segmentation Hacks Webinar with Dave Booth

dave booth webinarOver 10 million web sites use Google Analytics.

It’s easy to think that’s because it’s free, but really, what other free tools in the online marketing space have that kind of reach?

Google Analytics is now being utilized by both the hobbyist with a blog to the Fortune 500 business analyst, and one of the benefits of that is the creation of a community of experts who can help you use the tool better.

Google Analytics can help you pinpoint where you should be treating various types of visitors with varied tasks differently. It can help you segment, cut through, and clarify – but only if you know your way around.

Dave Booth, Founding Partner at Cardinal Path, is presenting a webinar to help you do just that. Join the webinar and find out how you can better utilize the tool:

  • Slice and dice data like a pro – learn the most useful custom segments you can create, and save the ones pros like Dave use often
  • Make it your own – use custom dimensions to extend the attributes on which you can segment
  • Get in front of the right people – create remarketing lists from your segments and pass the filters to AdWords

Designing Badges (And More) For A Conference


  

To badge or not to badge? That is the question. Because badges — and a lot of stuff designed for conferences — often look the same. But if you have a little, different conference, you need different kinds of things. Badges included.

Designing Badges (And More) For A Conference

It all started in 2013 with the first Kerning conference. I was asked to design the official notebook: we ended up with a really typographic design for the cover and a funny pattern on the back. And an Easter egg on the cover — more on that later. It was a really funny project, so when my dear friend Cristiano Rastelli, a member of Kerning’s organizing committee, asked me to design the notebook and some printed materials for Kerning 2014 I immediately said “Yes, let’s start!”
