Here at KITESTRING, we're always searching for new ways to look at brand equations - whether it's using a new problem-solving method, testing out product or service experiences, or conducting an in-depth exploration of historical industry and marketing trends. The Big Brand Theory is a new blog series that shares a peek at our purposeful process. Each month we'll feature a new topic and explore it from all the right angles. Every Thursday, our Copywriter and Communications Strategist, Holly, will be your guide through the ages of advertising.
I remember coming across the illustrations by Malika Favre a few years ago and was instantly attracted to her work. Her subject matter, use of negative space, simplistic art forms and bright colour palette all played a part in my interest. What I find most intriguing as I began researching more about her is her creative process and what inspires her artwork.
When none of us KITESTRINGers volunteered to string lights on the roof of 65 Walnut Street, we knew we needed some help getting ready for the holidays. Our friends at Christmas Decor by Skedaddle came to the studio’s rescue with lights, bows and garland in tow. Over the course of many hours, their team tirelessly worked to make sure everything was hung with care to transform our office into the most festive and fashionable house on the street. If you need help getting your home into the holiday spirit, give them a jingle!
This is a story of an odd couple. One is potentially the most recognizable brand in the world and the other, while a massive company, is a little less well known. At cocktail parties, the former would be the belle of the ball chatting up the room, while the latter would hang out near the dip. Their cross-promotional partnership is certainly mutually beneficial, but exactly what they see in each other is not quite as obvious.
Nope, you haven't been put on Santa's naughty list and your invite didn't get lost in the mail. While we always try to put the Spectacular in Christmas, this year KITESTRING is giving back in a new way.

It’s mid-November, it’s dark before 5pm and we are still over a month away from Christmas. I don’t know about you, but I need a drink.
I have had my eyes on this design duo for a while now. Rifle Paper Co. is a stationary and gift brand created by husband and wife team Anna and Nathan Bond out of Florida. Their small business of hand illustrated greeting cards, prints, iPhone cases, calendars and journals have grown into worldwide success over the last four years. I especially admire their whimsical hand-painted illustrations that have a vintage yet modern style.
