Re-branding and 2013 – December

Dec 3, 2012

That’s right we re-branded!

I recently had some time to look at my site and realised that I haven’t made any major changes in over 2 years.
I asked myself the standard branding questions:

  • Is Tyranny memorable? Yes
  • Is Tyranny easy to pronounce? Most of the time
  • Is Tyranny’s logo a good fit for the clients I want? Not anymore
  • How hard is it to change our business name? To difficult SEO and business wise.

So with these answers I set out with the goal to keep the same company name and re-brand just the logo and general aesthetics of my site and media.

Let us know what you think. Does the new branding suit better with today’s market?

What will 2013 bring?

Mobiles

The net and PC as we know it are dying. Mobiles are changing the way we work and the way that we buy.
More and more people are working from home with as many as 60% regularly working from home, according to an American study.
2013 will probably go down as the mobile era. For businesses this will mean less physical cash going into shops and offices and more into the online world.
It could be argued that this is a bad thing but it might have a flip side. Retail will return to a more community based experience where you talk directly to the owner and receive your goods via mail.

HTML 5

The web will be come more interactive rather than passive.
Flexible sites that can fit to any monitor or mobile/tablet.

Apps and the cloud

Operating systems like windows will eventually die out for something free like Android OS. Their cost will come from Apps that update often, extending the usability and function of your operating system. All your infomation will be stored in the cloud and it will be accessible via all your devices.

What kind of designer are you?

I know that a lot of my clients have design based businesses. So the question is what kind of designer are you?

I think I am a kitchen/hobbit?
