More From Katie Lundin
Here's how brand consistency can help you put competitors in your rearview mirror.
If your website takes more than four seconds to load, you've already lost a quarter of your visitors.
Square? Circular? Geometric? Organic? These elements actually communicate different things. Be sure you know what those are.
Remember the Juicero? The Zune? Those globs of gelatin floating in Orbitz soft drink bottles like drinkable lava lamps?
You could get sued. Your image could pop up on a competitor's site. It can't be trademarked. So, stop defending stock art because it's "cheap."
