My legacy lives on…

22 May

Despite leaving Vertex recently and looking for new challenges, my design abilities were obviously still highly thought of… I created this banner!

Improv Is Everywhere

21 May

I’ve always been a fan of guerrilla marketing practices, and it is my aim to work on friends and future colleagues… even strangers alike, and get them involved in a simple act of magic-making like you can see in the video below.

It doesn’t take much money or time, and you don’t need to be the most courageous individual to do it… But you can create little moments that stick with you forever. And they don’t even have to occur for a cause – just rave for the hell of it!

If anyone is interested in getting involved with a project, share your ideas via Twitter @natalieannboon – I’d love to hear your thoughts!

You know you’re made for this job when…

29 Dec

So it’s been a while and the holidays have taken over everybody’s lives. Typical! But before I get lost in another round of turkey sandwiches and chocolates my waistline really shouldn’t have room for, I must divulge a little secret with you…

I must be made for this job. Even when I’m doing some Christmas shopping, or birthday shopping (… just any shopping, really!) I can’t escape this perfectionist mentality. This graphical and observant pedant’s poise. It boils down to being so wound up by how things are mass-manufactured and wanting to make them myself. If I could design and produce my own clothes, I would. When I acquire enough experience and material to do so, I’ll make my own cards too. One’s that are soppy, one’s that aren’t: with imagery or without; great typography, serif and sans; co-ordinated themes and coloured massacres on some card. I’ll do everything; the window displays, the internal decor, the cards, the envelopes the gift bags and matching wrap, the finicky final touches… And they won’t be gotten right first time, but with time and practice they’ll be perfect.

I won’t grumble that they’re slightly out of sync or not what I’d make or get for Auntie so-and-so. I won’t roll my eyes that the card and envelope don’t match up, or that the gift bag doesn’t look right either. Cos I’ll have just taken five and done it myself. And that’s how I know I’m perfect for this job. For marketing. Because that’s what I have to each and every day. And I get paid to be this anally-retentive about things that many people don’t value as important or relevant or mattering whatsoever. And I’m pretty chuffed about that to be honest!

I can’t imagine having someone else do what I do; every project is my baby and I care too much about each item on the agenda and fine detail within it to let anything slide or fall short of being exactly what it should and could be. And isn’t that the aim of every marketer? Isn’t that what every company wants from their PR personnel?

They don’t want the bare or thrown-haphazardly-together window displays; they want the breathtaking and fabulous and wow-that-really-made-me-stop-and-think ones.

So that’s what I’ll give them.

Vertex, Vertex, who the heck are Vertex?

16 Nov

It occurs to me that you may have absolutely no idea who Vertex are.

It also occurs to me that there’s more to the web that infogram-making websites.

So I fused the two mental processes, and made an infogram from scratch on who Vertex are (simplistic styling, retro colouring and typefaces included).
