questions about running a creative service business, let’s take a brief look at
why these three concepts are so important, and how they can fundamentally
change the way you do business.

than being a book of graphic design. The distinction
may seem slight, but it is fundamental to this volume
as it covers the graphic design industry and its

Authors tend to distance themselves from the business side of publishing. For some, there is an almost willful avoidance of anything removed from the creative process.

and the products (designs) which are generated. Common uses of graphic design include identity (logos and
branding), websites, publications (magazines, newspapers, and books), advertisements, and product packaging.
The Facebook newsfeeds we will see at the end of
next year will look very different from the ones we
see now. We will see the rise of bigger, bolder, more
interactive – and intrusive – Facebook advertisements

Importantly, although some general rules are emerging,
these do not always apply. Macro factors such as industry
and brand status will play a role, but media planners will
also need to consider micro factors such as creative
strength, web site context and frequency effects. There will
be no standard template for campaign planning against a
speciﬁc objective. An awareness campaign which just
employs billboards and wallpapers will likely drive
awareness, but the potential negative repercussions on
other brand metrics will need to be considered.
