I am very happy to announce that Paul Ernest of SnapBrand is going to be a guest blogger here. Paul Ernest is an award winning designer whose primary interest outside of design has been photography. After 17 years of building identities and brands for companies such as Disney Cruise Lines, MGM Grand Hotel Las Vegas, Palace of the Lost City Resort & Casino, Atlantis in the Bahamas, Hilton Asian Division, 7-Eleven Food Stores, Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, YMCA and Major Clothing Retailers nationwide, Paul Ernest decided to step from beside the camera to behind the camera. He recently started a new endeavor, SnapBrand.
SnapBrand is a turn-key solution for photographers, who want a fixed package for a fixed budget. You know what you will get and know what you will spend… No open-ended efforts with surprise invoices at the end of the project.
What will Paul teach you? Well he wants your feedback on what you want to learn about branding. The content of his posts will be based partly on what MCP readers want to learn and how they want to grow their branding.
To accomplish this, we need to hear from you. And in return you may be the lucky winner (who will be picked at random) of their entry package called SnapShot Logo (if you win – you may upgrade to a bigger package as well and pay the difference). This is a $449 value. The prize includes:
- Prebranding Questionnaire
- 1 Hour Meeting
- 2 Logo Options
- 1 Set of Revisions w/Client Communication
- Digital Files
To enter for this prize and also shape what Paul will be teaching, please comment in the “comment box” on this post below.
To be eligible for the random drawing on Sunday, March 15th, please answer the following:
– What is the biggest challenge you have in growing your brand and what are your barriers in taking your brand to the next level? What do you feel you have done right or wrong in the past regarding branding? In the coming months, what would you like Paul of SnapBrand to teach you about logos, branding and how you are viewed in the marketplace?
