LETTER FROM THE PUBLISHER | YOU CAN’T BORE PEOPLE INTO BUYING

GORDON KAYE IS THE PUBLISHER OF GDUSA Comments, suggestions and letters can be sent to gkaye @ gdusa.com.

For the past few years branding, at least in the traditional sense, has been hammered. Pick your poison: economic stagnation; budget stresses and strains; fragmented media and attention-deficient markets; the obsession with ROI by peabrains who know the price of everything and the value of nothing.

Whatever the cause, the result is reduced financial and emotional investment in long-term branding, and a sharpened focus on the immediacy of the bottomline. Let’s be honest: accountability is not a bad thing and for some brand owners shortening the horizon may be necessary. But, as Joe Walters and Burkey Belser of Greenfield/Belser observe, the cost is considerable. “For starters,” writes Walters, “we’ve seen differentiation, core awareness and communication quality responsibilities sacrificed ... once-pioneering branding campaigns have given way to safer, less expensive efforts that suffer from sameness and lack the critical power of memorability ... both the quantity and quality of branding efforts have regressed.” But as spring returns, there may be hope. “From our perch,” the designers contend, “we see the pendulum swinging back to center. There’s an uptick in interest and inquiries on brand makeovers, ad campaigns, groundbreaking websites and other air cover for the business development troops. Brand championship is back. Which is nice.” Very nice. The next steps? They want to see you be brave. Take risks and dare to create memorable brand communications again. Walters quotes David Ogilvy, whose Ogilvy & Mather ad agency was recently ranked by GDUSA readers as among the top three of all time: “You can’t bore people into buying your product or service.” See: www.greenfieldbelser.com/brand-thinking/big-ideas HUNGRY FOR DESIGN Our editors have long contended that there is a growing appetite for graphic design in American commerce and culture. But we do not mean it literally. Turns out, when the entries poured in for our 2014 American Package Design Awards, I accidently ate one of the submissions — some crispy chips seasoned with sea salt. The packaging was crisp, too, and when we realized it never received a well-deserved award, the investigation led back to me. I wish it was the first time I had so transgressed, but I once consumed an intricate and stunning gingerbread house sent by a renowned designer for a holidaythemed story. In an apology, I wrote that I had misreported and otherwise mangled stories in my career, but had never eaten one before. At this moment, our immensely popular Inhouse Design Awards is taking entries — until Friday April 18. I promise not to snack on submissions. But why not use the digital option, just to be safe? Visit: gdusa.com/contests/aida14/enter TWO DESIGNERS, THREE OPINIONS There’s a long history of Jewish jokes to the effect that for every two Jews, there are three opinions. I have always felt this accurately describes graphic designers as well. I’ve been studying the answers to questions we posed to our 2014 ‘People To Watch’ and ‘Students To Watch’ cohort — favorite book, artist, website, etc. — to mine for cultural patterns and clues. As usual, it is largely a fruitless task. For example, the design students cumulatively listed 55 favorite bands; no single musician is mentioned twice. Another example: the 2014 designers-to-watch mentioned 51 fine artists, with no overlap but for a couple of nods to Miro and Picasso. Still, I did uncover two points of consensus. One relates to favorite gadgets: turns out iPhones and iPads are popular. Yawn. The other category, movies, is more intriguing. Blade Runner is, by far, the consistent favorite. As you may know, the early ’80s film depicts a dystopian Los Angeles of 2019 in which genetically engineered robots called replicants, who look human, do the jobs Americans will not do on space colonies. Replicants who defy a ban and return to Earth are hunted down by special “Blade Runner” police. The film, directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford, is a neo-noir, violent, claustrophobic, paranoia-inducing — albeit visuallystunning — exploration of the dangers of a high-tech future and the ambiguity of what it means to be human. That GDUSA readers select Blade Runner from all films ever made must mean something. Which reminds me of another Jewish saying — Oy! — which roughly translates to surprise mixed with a tinge of dismay. By the way, the 51st Anniversary “People To Watch” and “Students To Watch” features are currently available in their entirety on our website. See: http://gdusa.com/issue_2014/january/ptw/

AMERICAN PACKAGE DESIGN AWARDS SPONSORED BY

NEENAH

This annual competition is our fastest growing — entries rose more than 20 percent (again) this year — because it celebrates the power of design to promote the brand, communicate the value, convey essential information, and make the sale. A personal friend and favorite, Procter & Gamble CEO and consumer packaged goods guru, A.J. Lafley — whose return to P&G this year has rejuvenated the marketing giant — says: “Your products are up for election everyday and good design is critical to winning the campaign.” Showcased here are 300 winning pieces from designers and marketers who know that packaging and point-of-sale are the ultimate test — and the ultimate proof — of Lafley’s point: that it is more important than ever to make an emotional connection at the moment of truth.

PRADO Studio of Dana Point CA designed the packaging and identity for Marie Todd Luxury Candle and Diffuser Collection, printed on CLASSIC® Linen and CLASSIC CREST® Papers from Neenah.

FRESH | AIGA’S YEAR-LONG CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

NEW YORK NY “The AIGA Centennial is a chance to look back at our roots as designers and to look forward to our growing impact in society,” says AIGA Executive Director Richard Grefé. “But more than that, it’s an opportunity to capture the many reasons that design matters.” A centerpiece of the celebration is “100 Years of Design,” an interactive online exploration of design’s legacy and growing impact. Visitors are encouraged to learn more about American communication design through significant works, interviews and profiles, and to contribute their own favorite examples. For “Centennial Voices,” an essay series published on the organization’s website throughout 2014, AIGA has invited industry leaders to contribute personal reflections on the past, present and future of design. And AIGA’s 67 chapters across the U.S. will mark the centennial with dozens of events and activities throughout the year; highlights include exhibitions, networking receptions, parties and celebrations honoring AIGA Fellows. One of the largest is “The AIGA Centennial Gala” in New York City, honoring a special class of 24 individuals with the AIGA Medal for lifetime achievement in design. In addition, several public exhibitions are planned to highlight design’s impact and the history of AIGA: these include “Facing Forward” at the AIGA National Design Center in February and “Century: One Hundred Years of Typeface Design” in April. www.aiga.org/centennial Photographs (clockwise from top left): Esquire: Cover for issue no. 426, 1969.

FRESH | TOUGHER BULLDOG SYMBOLIZES MACK TRUCK OVERHAUL

CHICAGO IL Since WWI, Mack Truck's brand has been an American symbol of toughness and strength. (After all, how

many people have felt like they've been “hit by a Mack Truck.”) The bulldog had become the official symbol but management conceded that the consistency of the brand image was often sacrificed for other business priorities. VSA Partners, Mack's agency of record, embarked upon a comprehensive brand strategy and revitalization program. VSA focused on the most potent parts of Mack's identity — the bulldog and the wordmark — to create a cohesive brand expression system centered around an authentic purpose. VSA officials stated that the brand is “now positioned to deliver consistently on a reputation for speaking honestly, for working harder than the next guy . . . and for loving the trucking industry.” The campaign includes a global rebrand, logo and tagline, signage, collateral, branding guidelines, trade show materials, an ad campaign, and a website coming next month. www.vsapartners.com

FRESH | POURING A FRESH BRAND FOR ‘SALT GIRL’ ANNIVERSARY

CHICAGO IL Morton Salt is sponsoring a year-long campaign to

honor the Morton Salt Girl, who marks her 100th year as the face of the brand. As part of the effort, the logo and package design system have been refreshed as well, though the famous tagline — “When It Rains, It Pours” — has been retained. A friendlier font maintains the bold, all-caps type style, but the letter “R” carries a slight kick to mimic the Morton Salt Girl’s step. The “girl” icon has been refreshed but in small, subtle ways, such as cleaner, simplified linework. Limited edition packaging will be sold in retail and grocery stores nationwide throughout 2014. Two New York-based agencies are reportedly involved: Addison developed the masterbrand positioning and 100 anniversary branding while Pause for Thought designed the new logo and packaging. www.mortonsaltgirl100.com

FRESH | CHEN LOGO BRIDGES PAST AND FUTURE

SAN FRANCISCO CA What makes San Francisco uniquely San Francisco?

Since 1971, it has been the business of non-profit San Francisco Heritage to preserve and enhance our city’s distinctive architectural and cultural identity. SF Heritage does this through a variety of advocacy and educational programs, preservation projects, community celebrations, historical tours, and rental of the Haas-Lilienthal House and gardens. Chen Design Associates recently helped guide SF Heritage’s first rebranding work in over 25 years. Through deep dialog and collaboration with the organization’s design subcommittee and board, the resulting work elevates the brand to a new level of sophistication. CDA’s comprehensive work for SF Heritage honors history with timeless typography and but also presents a reinvigorated, contemporary sensibility that expresses energy, dynamism, and boldness. The new “H-shaped” mark itself is an abstract representation of the Golden Gate bridge on the top and the San Francisco Bay on the bottom. Reverse sides of the business card feature various physical places to visit and illustrate the organization's virtual home. Mike Buhler, executive director, SF Heritage says: “The new branding [CDA created] speaks volumes — that we are growing and evolving. Our work intrinsically looks to the past but our organization is also looking forward to the future. The perception of our entire organization has been transformed.” The newest initiative: “Legacy Bars and Restaurants,” which invites the public to patronize and celebrate many of San Francisco’s most long-lived eateries that contribute a sense of history to the surrounding neighborhood. www.news.chendesign.com

KANSAS CITY MO When railroads were king, Harvey House Diner was a staple in Kansas City’s Union Station. Starting in

FRESH | C&G PARTNERS PRESERVE ‘19TH CENTURY SILICON VALLEY’ COLD SPRING NY For roughly 100 years — from 1818

into the early 20th century — the West Point Foundry in New York’s Hudson Valley was one of America’s great industrial and innovation centers, designing and manufacturing armaments, steam engines, industrial machinery, cast-iron fittings, and more. Changing times led to abandonment of the 87-acre site. In 1996, it came under the protection of Scenic Hudson, an advocacy group which works to restore the Hudson River and surrounding landscape. Scenic Hudson, in turn, commissioned C&G Partners to design interpretive graphics, signage and exhibits for its new West Point Foundry Preserve. The goal: to bring to life the history and spirit of the Foundry while enhancing it as a destination for recreation and contemplation. As the visual centerpiece, C&G Partners created a cast-iron seal that drew on historic references but also added contemporary embellishments. At key locations, the designers created evocative interpretive features that tell the story of Foundry’s contributions to the Industrial Revolution and Civil War, as well as the cleanup leading to its ecological renewal. Kiosks act as directional markers, while also presenting narratives on facets of daily life; many are anchored by bricks from the ruins. Keith Helmetag, a founder of the Manhattan-based multi-specialty design studio, provided creative leadership and project management, working closely with Scenic Hudson, Mathews Nielsen Landscape Architects, and other team members. At the conclusion of the project, Helmetag sought to capture its essence in a small monograph, as a keepsake to share with clients and peers. More than a simple promotional publication, the lavishly illustrated booklet – produced and printed by mPress Graphics LLC in Manhattan – delves deep into the project and explains how design solutions help contribute value and meaning. mPress LLC founder Gerry Schneiderman and partner Maggie Black explain that the monograph has four notable features: the striking black cover of the book is foil stamped and blind embossed with the new seal; the interior paper is an 80 lb. cover to add heft; mPress recommended PUR Binding, a method with superior adhesion that allows a book with heavier coated paper stock to open all the way, lie flat, and show spreads well; and, finally, various varnishes render dull and shiny images on the same page for striking contrasts. www.cgpartnersllc.com and mpressllc.com

FRESH | CARBONE SMOLAN ROLLS OUT WELLNESS INITIATIVE IN LAS VEGAS

NEW YORK NY In answer to a culture consumed with “wellness” and how

it is achieved, real estate developer Delos established a medically backed, measurable standard for hospitality spaces. Launched with Stay Well®, this initiative first introduced the standard to the MGM Grand Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. This is where CSA stepped in, reinforcing Stay Well through the design of a visual identity system. The program for Stay Well includes a distinct logo, corresponding color palette, photography, and refined typography. Applied to the hotel’s in-room amenity guides and the website, the brand expression distills their research for hotel operators and guests alike, streamlines how guests review the information, and develops a structure based on themes like “rest,” “nourish,” and “refresh.” By integrating the brand experience with the physical amenities in the room, guests are quickly introduced and educated on how their room enhances their health. “Through design,” says CSA, “the mission moves forward.” www.carbonesmolan.com/work/stay-well

ARTHUR EISENBERG FOUNDER, EISENBERG AND ASSOCIATES, DALLAS TX

Arthur Eisenberg launched Eisenberg And Associates in 1974. The firm, now celebrating its 40th anniversary, is still going strong. Eisenberg graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and did advanced work at Pratt Institute (studying under, among others, Milton Glaser). Back in Texas, he worked for Stan Richards at The Richards Group, and then started his own Dallas-based firm, which has become a major force in branding and design. Recipient of the Golden Egg lifetime achievement award, Eisenberg’s blend of creativity and business savvy has been described as “one of the most successful business strategies in the creative market.” As for his inspiration: “I have a terrific wife, children and grandchildren that love me as much as I love them. And I still love my work as I did when I first started. Now, as I move into my 60s, I reflect on how the people I work with today impact my life and my work. They keep me young. They excite me. They influence me. They inspire me.”

Founder and Chairman of The Bridgeman Art Library, HARRIET BRIDGEMAN is now a Commander of the Order of the British Empire for services to the arts. In 1972, she founded The Bridgeman Art Library, which provides both a central source of fine art images for reproduction, and generates additional income for museums and galleries, in 1972. In 2006, Bridgeman also founded The Artists’ Collecting Society, of which she is managing director, to collect royalties for artists under the European Union’s Resale Right Directive. She represents ACS on the board of the British Copyright Council and the International Confederation of Societies of Authors and Composers. No stranger to honors, Bridgeman received the European Women of Achievement Award in the Arts in 1997 and International Business Woman of the Year in 2005. TONY NEARY, founder of Traction, has transferred ownership of the business to partner RICHARD GROOT. The switch from partner to owner is an easy one; Groot's been on the board with the Cincinnati OH-based design firm since 2011. Plus, he has 30 years of strategic branding experience, working with everything from package design to corporate communications. “I am so glad that I can entrust something that was built with a ton of hard work to such a good man,” says Neary. Paul Kiesche Design, a high-end custom graphic design and illustration studio, is excited about the addition of MARTY CRAWN as its new Studio Manager. In this newly expanded role, Crawn is responsible for overseeing all client projects and internal operations, as well as fueling PKD’s continued growth through new business development initiatives and strategic partnership alliances. He is also playing a role in brand awareness creation, positioning and strategic marketing initiatives. Previously, Crawn operated his own successful marketing consultancy. He graduated from William Paterson University. This past fall, Elements welcomed a new designer to their team. KATHRYN CHASE-LEVIN comes to Elements with experience in branding and package design, but she is new to Connecticut. And earlier in the year, CHELSEA MAY rejoined the team. Her previous tenure at the firm was 2008 to 2011; she is now involved in Business Development & Client Services with the goal of growing Elements’ current client relationships and cultivating new opportunities.

Sica started at thinkdm2 as an intern during his senior year at Montclair State University; he has since graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design.

This annual competition is our fastest growing — entries rose more than 20 percent (again) this year — because it celebrates the power of design to promote the brand, communicate the value, convey essential information, and make the sale. A personal friend and favorite, Procter & Gamble CEO and consumer packaged goods guru, A.J. Lafley — whose return to P&G this year has rejuvenated the marketing giant — says: “Your products are up for election everyday and good design is critical to winning the campaign.” Showcased here are 300 winning pieces from designers and marketers who know that packaging and point-of-sale are the ultimate test — and the ultimate proof — of Lafley’s point: that it is more important than ever to make an emotional connection at the moment of truth.

THE BEAUTY OF PACKAGING A MESSAGE FROM NEENAH | SPONSOR OF THE AMERICAN PACKAGE DESIGN AWARDS

WHY DO WE CALL EMOTIONS “FEELINGS?”

FOR THE EYE AND THE HAND

WHY DO WE CARE MOST WHEN

In fact, packaging, beyond its primary function to protect, may

SOMETHING “TOUCHES” US? In today’s virtual world, where there are indeed fewer opportunities for physical touch, packaging provides a “moment” — a rare opportunity for touch, sensuality and dimensionality — an opportunity for a brand to make an emotional connection with a consumer.

matter more today than ever in a world where we crave authenticity. Why? Because successful packages engage through the senses. As such, whether a package is designed to feel hand-made, edgy, beautiful, artistic, hip, classic, elegant or ironic, the package is one of the most important aspects of both brand’s persona and physical presence in today’s hyper-crowded markets. At Neenah, we know this to be true: nothing elevates the quality of a product quite like its package. And — beyond the design — nothing elevates the physical package quite like premium materials. Texture and color are ways to engage both hand and eye. The quality of the materials can make the object feel crafted rather than merely printed, more one of a kind than one of many.

PRINT IS GLORIOUSLY TACTILE | NO WONDER IT DELIVERS RESULTS BY GERRY BONETTO

Humans were designed to touch and feel. Print – an extremely tactile media – caters to this need. While much of the marketing world’s attention seems to be turned to the digital arena, print continues to be an extremely effective part of the marketing mix. When you think about the emotional impact that print’s physicality has, it’s easy to see why print works. Perhaps it’s because it exists in the physical world that print is so capable of grabbing our attention. From the magazines sitting in the doctor’s waiting room to the newspapers in the rack at your favorite coffee place and the letters and fliers that arrive in your mail, print has a way of calling out to be picked up and read. Many people find that there’s just something enjoyable about holding a printed piece in their hands. Print stimulates the senses. You can feel the texture of the paper, turn the pages, see the colors as they were meant to be seen. Print can be shared, thumbed through and dog-eared. Coupons and articles can be cut or torn out and set aside. Plus, of course, print is always available, no connectivity required. Print not only provides a warm and friendly experience that no other medium offers, it also offers a sense of permanence that simply feels more trustworthy. In fact, recent studies

The tactile nature of print undoubtedly contributes to the effectiveness of newspaper and magazine ads. One recent study shows that newspaper ads rank noticeably higher than ads on radio, TV or online-only sites when it comes to measures of advertising effectiveness such as “usually notice ads” and “likely to purchase.”2 Another recent study shows that magazines outperform TV and online for critical purchase drivers such as brand awareness, brand favorability and brand purchase intent.3 In contrast, social media – the darling of the marketing world — may not be that darling after all. In a recent survey of more than 1,700 social media marketers, less than 8% were actually happy with their efforts and 21% were so dissatisfied that they’re ready to replace their social spend with more traditional buys.
