Small Business Reborn

leave a comment »

Daniel Patricio, founder of Organge Rhino Media, came to UTSC today. His speech on the company’s effort on small businesses in Toronto was awesome.

Social medias think small. They are not only for small businesses. In fact, they are effective in bringing big corporations down to earth and adding human touch to those brands that we ‘admire’ yet not neccessary ‘know’ anything about. Small businesses in Toronto were forgotten by Canadians for a long while. Consumers went after big brands and spent their limited household budget there. Small businesses are the heart of a city. Without them, we are nothing but followers. Social medias are such a nice partner with small businesses in which they work toward daily interaction that can make people’s days.

The simplicity and devotion in a small business will be gone sooner or later without a significant demand from the cosumer side. The Toronto city follows.

Passionate people like Daniel who works toward originality and local is in need.

Going Siteless, from Modernista! to Skittles

Modernista! referring page web design

Modernista! referring page web design

The referring page web design of Modernista! once made me frustrated. Once I’d figured out how to navigate this tricky site, however, I love it.

It is the creativity that makes people to dive into the site and find out more about the company. Modernista! redirects you to Youtube if you want to check out its TV work and you would find yourself in Google map if you are trying to get the direction to its office. I love the fact that the navigation menu can be move around the platform. It feels like I am mastering the site!

Now, one year later, Skittles is doing the same stuff. But its use of colorfulness makes the already-complex referring page design more complex. Makes me dizzy. I prefer the simple and old-fashion design.
