Here at Red Daisy we are always looking for inspiration online.
We love to see amazing photographers and websites visuals that take things to a new level, or even just show things in an easy to digest manner.
That is why in this post we wanted to showcase a bunch of visuals that we or our clients have used in the last year or so. (yes we have been quiet online).
If you want to get a whole lot of information across, sometimes a visual is the best way to go about it.
Infographics have become very popular and we recently stumbled across a few we thought we would bring to your attention.
This infographic we found on Simplicity Small Biz shows the art of social selling. Something we all need to get better at online.
As you know, this kind of information portrayal really helps people get the message. Far easier than if it was in words.
But there are also other great ways to do this such as the following example of a world map using visual. This was done actually using the Tableau Data Visualization software which is a great way for non-profits to get their message across. You can see the graphic here.
Our client has used it in this case to display the countries in the world where they are hosting this particular software. An imaginative way of using the data for sure.
I also love this post from NeoMam, a great agency in the UK that does content marketing and other things in this area. This blog post shows how music can be visualised and is a very impressive demonstration of what is possible with the right tools.
Some of the visuals are pretty cool, albeit a bit abstract for most I guess.
Photos Are The Best Visuals
Of course, we here at Red Daisy think photos are pretty cool as well.
That is why we want to show you some stand out photographers that we have stumbled across in the last months.
The first is a great resource if you need some absolutely free photography. Even though the taste of this whacky guy may not suit everyone!
The website is called, rightfully so, Gratisography and offers fee (gratis) images for use in any situation (business or personal).
Here is an example of Ryan’s work
If you like such amazing visuals or images and want lots to use in your upcoming projects, another great source to check out is Death To Stock Photography. These guys know what they are doing and take themes and shoot photos on that theme every few months or so. Then, if you sign up for it, they will send you the photos and you can do what you like with them. Great idea, right?
Here is an example of their most recent photo shoot:
Again, you can clearly see the quality of their work in the visuals that they create. Something not everyone in the industry can claim, that is for sure.
So, next time you are looking to take your content to the next level have a think about how you can create some stunning visuals.
It could mean making a graphic or chart that is suited to the job and to the expected audience. Or, like with the last few examples it could mean using photos as the basis of a visual for your website, brochure or social media posts. Up to you.
But one thing is for sure, the bar is raising ever higher online, and it is up to your and your business to keep up.
If you need some help with your visuals online, be sure to give us a yell.
