WHM Gazette, Its all good news.
Our fun and irreverent YouSendIt booth wasn’t just a hit at the 2010 Gartner IT Expo, but also was a hit at the American Design Awards’ 2011 Winter Semi Annual Design Contest, where our poster got 3rd place in the Poster Design category.
The world need words. Lots of words. Website words. Social words. Banner words. Even the dreaded e-book words. And that’s only the beginning. Problem is, companies need so many words, so fast, that all the words start to sound the same: “Disruptive.” “Innovative.” “Breakthrough.” Ugh. When everyone sounds the same, no one stands out.
That’s where you come in. You’re a content machine. You fear no brief. You take a tweet as seriously as a TV spot. And you can crank out anything and everything, mistake-free, fast. But here’s what really sets you apart: Not only do you have the ability to pump out a #*$!ton of work… you actually care about what it says. You’ve walked the wasteland of pointless jargon. You know how tired the same old clichés can get. You’ve seen enough of the catchphrase that’s only catchy for its own sake. So you take that crap, and you grind it into oblivion, and you refashion it into language that’s not only understandable, but inspiring. Into words that really mean something.
