We have so much fun working with Hugh MacLeod, Jason Korman, and Laura Viberti from Gapingvoid. Not only are they experts on making work more meaningful, but Hugh is a master of capturing complex concepts in funny, colorful, and engaging illustrations.

  1. Tyler says:

    Love the simplicity (and truth) behind #1.

  2. These are really great. I align with most of them. But I agree with Tyler, #1 is my vote.

  3. Rebecca says:

    #6 – This could be a poster in my office.

  4. Courtney Berkery says:

    #7!! The most inspiring part of writing a brief is thinking about the intersection between brand and culture.

  5. Jenny says:

    Love #10, as stories are what we remember.

  6. Sara Barker says:

    #10 all the way!

  7. Jennifer Rosenberg says:

    These are all great, but my favorite is #7.

  8. Kim Tam says:

    #1. Brand ManageCamp Conference Illustration.

  9. Jill Sato says:

    #1 got me…right in the heart. It’s so easy to overthink and overanalyze. But it takes guts to lead with your heart, and that’s usually when the best ideas surface.

  10. Stacia Dahl says:

    I like #3 – “You Don’t Need Shorter Content. You Need Better Content.” This is absolutely true! It seems the new buzzword where I work is Tweetify — as in: “We need to tweetify this paragraph so it’s shorter” — meaning to cut the length of something. Well sometimes, the content is as long as it needs to be in order to convey the message. Sometimes the message just gets garbled if it’s cut too much. Maybe the content actually needs to better instead of shorter. I think I will frame this phrase and hang it on my wall!

  11. Gigi Aponte says:


  12. Meghan says:

    #2. Nothing is ever simple or obvious.

  13. Sarah Keller says:

    #1 for sure! The best ideas involve heart, emotion, passion.

  14. Meghan says:

    2 all the way. Everything is overcomplicated.

  15. SMB says:

    #10 telling a story connects the consumer to their daily life and will remember the brand.

  16. Larry says:

    #4 – There’s always 100% non-retention on skipped pages.

  17. #7. A brand is more than a logo and it has to form the basis of a culture. Otherwise, nothing exists…oooo….kind of existential!

  18. Dana Kowalski says:

    #4 is the bridge ALL content needs to be successful. The best content in the world is a total waste of time and money if it doesn’t get to an audience, and sometimes it has to be the right audience. Mediocre content with a large audience will generate greater revenue than great content with little audience. #4 is my vote : )

  19. Dani Bullard says:

    #6 – People trust people’s recommendations. That’s why referrals and reviews are so important!

  20. Jeff says:

    #5 is so how most customer’s are these days

  21. Allison M. says:

    #6 – Trust is invaluable. It is the foundation upon which relationships are built and the difference maker in decision making.

  22. Sara says:

    #1 I believe in! <3

  23. Stacy Reeder says:

    #1. Brand ManageCamp Conference Illustration. This one attracted my attention the most, but
    #5. The Distracted Customer is so funny and true.

  24. #14. A Pebble Can Move Mountains. But It Has To Be The RIGHT Pebble.

  25. A Hilton says:

    #14 – We don’t have to go out and make big moves. One small move can change the course of so many things.

  26. Lyda Akin says:

    #7 resonates with me. My second favorite is #10. But they’re all thought provoking and fun!

  27. Nancy Daniel says:

    #3. You Don’t Need Shorter Content. You Need Better Content gets my vote. I get so tired of people saying content needs to be edited back in order to be better. Short can be good, long can be great… it’s the content of the content that matters!

  28. Jillian says:

    #9 speaks volumes to my current marketing/brand strategy…love it!

  29. Alisa says:

    I think there are so many great ones, but the one I resonate most with and I think should be shared more broadly would be the message #1 sends. We need to ensure our efforts are done with good intentions and are rooted in our character and heart. Great job everyone!

  30. Lance Duyao says:

    1 ,2 , 6, 8 & 12. Aaaaargh! BUT the one that resonates the most with me is #1.

  31. Emma says:

    I’m loving #13! The design is so appealing to me and the message is one that I’m grappling with in my professional life. 🙂

    #10 for sure!!!!

  41. T Torbert says:

    # 6

    Pithy messages grab attention but often the brand is forgotten. People trust people they trust and that’s longer lasting
