Last year saw the passing of Steve Jobs, Apple’s founder and CEO which saw a deluge of tributes to him. One of the tributes happened to be a redesigned logo of Apple’s iconic symbol with a silhouette of Steve Jobs incorporated into the bite of a white Apple logo against a black background.
The image which was created by Hong Kong design student Jonathan Mark went viral on the internet after the passing of Jobs. In fact, after the image went viral, that prompted some of the top marketing agencies to hunt him down.
One of them happened to be the chief creative officer of Ogilvy & Mather China, Mr Graham Fink who saw the potential talent of this young man.
In fact, he was offered an assignment called ‘Sharing A Coke’ and you could see the creative image that he came up with which can be seen at Shanghai bus stops. Needless to say, he was paid for his work although he declined to comment how much it was preferring to keep his focus on his studies.
While most of us enjoy viewing these creative designs, the fact is that many businesses out there are powered by creative logos and designs which serve to capture the attention of consumers worldwide. And of course having these designs created will cost money.
Which brings us to the question of how willing are small and medium sized businesses willing to pay for creativity?
Creative designs help people retain information about a company or its products. Creative designs could be in the form of business logos, website templates or webpage elements like buttons, banners and so on.
