inspiration from kate spade

In studying branding and corporate identity, I can't help but love the marketing efforts from kate spade. No matter what goes out the door, whether it's online or via mail and marketing campaigns, everything is 100% kate spade and you don't even need to see the logo to recognize the brand. Here are a few examples.
Check out the latest email campaign - be sure to watch the video on the homepage on how to play "lemonade-pong".

A kate spade advertisement is easily recognizable - it usually consists of fabulous and chic photography and her popular pun on words and witty deadlines:

Why people like to complicate designs so much, I have no idea. Look how clean these headers are on her website - crisp, colorful, the right about of white space. Sometimes plain and simple is much better than going overboard with too much copy, imagery and jazzy effects. The focus should be on the product (which is great here by the way!):

to tweet or not to tweet

So I've contemplated forever whether to bother joining another network - just one more thing to keep up with is how I looked at it. Well, now that I've toyed with Twitter for the past couple of weeks I've decided that I kind of like it! Ladies and Gentlemen, I'm ready to say "Follow me on Twitter!"
