No brand is a static entity.
As a business naturally evolves, its people, capabilities and culture change with it. Marketing materials will have to change too—this is a given. But websites, collateral and social media graphics aren’t the only things that need to keep up. Sometimes the brand itself needs a little bit of tweaking.
The lead-up to Valentine’s Day is saturated with ads featuring couples who are deeply in love and seemingly never see each other with a hair out of place.

Sometimes you just need somewhere to start from. Every industry has different averages that they can or should spend on marketing endeavors, but ultimately it boils down to balancing your available resources with the growth you are seeking to achieve.
We've created a simple Marketing Budget Template to help you determine a range, from conservative to aggressive, and then a simple breakdown of percentages on how you should spend your budget.
Call me a huge nerd, but I’ve always loved to learn. Whether it stems from wanting to better myself or rise to a new challenge, the desire to expand my knowledge continues to be at the core of who I am and has extended into my career as a graphic designer and art director.
So you want to promote your newly launched brand, boost your lead pipeline and improve your customer experience. Great! But is your digital strategy in line with these goals?
Last week at de Novo, we received a Halloween card from a company that shall remain nameless. At first I thought, "Great idea! We aren't into the holiday season yet, way to get out there with this now!"
