A Message from Jeff Juhasz
The Way I See It

Here’s a story about the importance of being careful with your words. One day, a teacher brought two apples to school. Before the children arrived to class, the teacher repeatedly dropped one of the apples on the floor, although it wasn’t visible, and both apples looked perfect.

The teacher asked the children to talk about the apples and describe them. Many children said they looked the same: both were red, they were of similar size, and they looked delicious enough to eat.

Then the teacher picked up the apple that he dropped earlier and told the children how he disliked that apple. He said it was disgusting and ugly, and he asked the children to start calling the apple names. The children were hesitant at first, but quickly passed the apple around the circle calling it names and telling the apple it was smelly, gross, ugly, and other unkind words.

Then the teacher passed around the other apple and asked everyone to say kind words to it. The kids called it beautiful, delicious, and tasty.When the teacher cut the apples open, the apple they were nice to was crispy, fresh, and juicy inside.

However, the apple they were unkind to was bruised, brown, and mushy inside. The children quickly realized that this is what happens inside us when someone mistreats us with unkind words.

Here’s the way I see it: Always be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can only be forgiven, not forgotten.

5 Reasons to Consider a Rebrand for Your Business


Is rebranding just a marketing ploy, something time consuming, or simply cliche╠ü? Perhaps you think rebranding sounds fun but isn’t worth the time or hassle.

You may want to think again.

The truth is, everything changes over time, even some of our most treasured cultural icons. Think how far St. Nicholas has come: from a “patron saint of children” to the lovable “Coca- Cola Claus” who dominates our economy each winter!

In the right hands (and done well), rebranding can raise millions in donations or billions on the stock market. Rebranding your business can increase sales, bring a more relevant message, or create a new niche for your products and services.

Is Now the Right Time to Rebrand Your Business?


Considering a professional update? Here are several reasons rebranding may be a wise investment:

1. A Corporate Change or a Structural Realignment

At times, companies need to differentiate between one part of themselves and another.

Google re-organized its structure under a newly created umbrella brand (called Alphabet), while a different brand (called PRODUCT) allowed for multiple members of the PRODUCT brand family. Whether a company splits or wants to differentiate between departments, rebranding can be the easiest way to communicate change.

2. In Response to the Competition or to Present a New Approach
In competitive markets, rebranding can provide an extra edge on the store shelf, in your ad campaigns, or propel fundraising efforts. Highlight core values and shine the spotlight on new products!

3. To Save a Failing Brand or Change Public Perceptions

Why do some cities or countries develop themselves as a “destination” tourism brand?

To build excitement and present themselves in a fresh light! Whether a product line is failing, or your company needs a boost, clearing the slate can provide the jumpstart you need.

4. To Highlight a New Product or Fill a Gap in the Market

Sometimes rebrands are timed to reveal an innovation or to create a new market.

Some of the greatest products created markets for items people didn’t even know they needed, such as the Walkman and the iPod.

5. To Simplify or to Signal the End of a Product Lifecycle

At times an idea or a product reaches the end of its useful life.

Whether you abandon it or reshape it into something new, change is inevitable. If you are merely simplifying, make small tweaks by eliminating colors, updating fonts, or even shortening words. What happened when Federal Express and Pan American Airways wanted a refresh? FedEx and Pan Am were born!

Relevant, Relatable, Rebranded


Whether you’re revealing a structure change or creating a more flexible identity, rebrands and design updates show the public you are relevant and relatable.

Tech Tip
Sourcing Images Online

While there are a plethora of images available online, you should confirm that you can use an image before using it in your marketing materials or sharing on social media, since images can be copyrighted or have a license with specific guidelines for usage.

Another benefit of locating the original source is that you may find alternate sizes (perhaps in a higher resolution) or different orientations of the image.

Instead of searching with keywords, here are three popular reverse image search engines to consider:

  • Google – easily upload an image or search by image URL.

  • Bing – allows you to find similar images, pinpoint locations, identify dog breeds, and much more.

  • Tin Eye - find out where an image came from, how it is being used, if modified versions of the image exist, or if there is a higher resolution version.

If you have questions about recommended image resolution sizes for printing, give us a call today – we’d be happy to help.
