Square is the New Long

We were doing some work with our designer on the new logo for The Sessum Group (yeah yeah the site is coming, cobbler’s children and all of that), and I noticed something I hadn’t thought of before: logos must be square. The designer came back with a really nice looking logo, horizontal, would have been jazzy across the top of our letterhead, and I was all: YES!  A strange thing happened on the way to social media though. It looked like crap in Facebook. The same logo that would have rocked corporate stationary didn’t scale down to a nice thumbnail, which, in a 140 character world, all businesses must do. If it doesn’t look good in a twitter profile square, or a facebook newsfeed icon, then it’s probably not the logo you need right now, today, in 2012, can you believe it’s 2012? GAH!

SO back to the drawing board we went, to square-proof our logo, so it would display well in the mini-pixel world of social media, where brands that best emblazen a postage stamp stand out and large-scale works of art are best saved for corporate headquarters wall art.

And so it goes…

    Greetings from Los angeles! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your website on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m amazed at how quick your blog loaded on my phone .. I’m not even using
    WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, good site!

    In writing letters requesting facts about subjects you do not know much about, it really helps to end your letter “… and another details you might deem useful’. If you are still thinking how your ex girlfriend for fashion will allow you to earn money, start content writing reviews on the fashion brand name and see the alterations yourself.
