What to expect for 2021: Five key marketing trends

Just a few months into 2020 and our collective worlds, both personal and business, had been disrupted beyond imagination. 57% of companies in North America and Europe had to rework their business models, eCommerce saw a huge bump when online orders shot up by 108%, Facebook’s daily usage surged by 27%, 63% of users became more reliant on digital technologies, and 42% of consumers had irreversibly changed their bricks-and-mortar shopping habits.

Branding trends: what to expect in 2021

2021 is here – after a year that has shaken the world and bought the unexpected. Although 2020 has shown us that we never truly know what a new year will bring, we can still have some predictions about what this year will look like in certain areas of specialty. And one of these areas is branding.

How brand automation and artificial intelligence benefit the digital marketing world

Branding is agile. It develops with the times. Well-branded companies recognize that what served them once will no longer suit audiences living in a different time with different priorities.

Everything which you have just considered is a brand association. But how are these forged, and how can you ensure your brand associations work to the benefit of your organization?

Corporate typeface: how bespoke type empowers your brand

As communication becomes increasingly more digital in nature, there’s a vital brand touchpoint which requires more consideration: typeface. As a brand asset, type possesses the ability to subtly convey brand values through the choice of letter shape. When Coca Cola followed in the footsteps of AirBnB, Nokia, General Electric, Intel and BMW to launch its own custom corporate typeface, the new typeface was designed to “encapsulate from Coca-Cola’s past and its American modernist heritage.”
