Love this! Excellent example of how high-level design branding works. Drives the importance of working from a concept. Every detail matters, friends!
As a creative, I believe in building all creative from a central concept, and the the process from that point be exploratory but always tangential to the concept.

Straight Down Clothing has launched a unique Facebook-based promotion, leveraging Photo’s tagging feature. The byline is simple: “Tag yourself; Get 25% off for the rest of the month.” The company hopes to reward it’s current followers and incentivize more “Likes” from others with a discount off all retail purchases from its website.
Straight Down is one of the first to employ the user-engaged “tagging” exercise. It is a unique take on the popular contest-based promotions that are growing in popularity across the Facebook platform.
One of the best ways to drive engagement and build word of mouth traffic about your brand is to run a contest via social media channels. Not only does it engage consumers with your brand in a fun and exciting way, it results in a treasure-trove of customer information, preferences, and feedback you can then mine to improve your business. And, best of all, launching an online contest can be very inexpensive.
McDaniel aptly notes the voracity at which these contests can drive a brand; taking the uncertainty away from the contest is where Straight Down hopes to reengage it’s current base, and attract future “Likes” going forward.

As a practicing, creative internet professional, I’m happy to throw my short submission into the ring. The internet, as a resource that is equal and even for all who choose to enter it , is a highway that MUST be protected — higher corporations are trying to buy it.
The ability to share content is one intrinsic to all those belonging to the digital age… and really, those prior who choose to join and those in the future yet to come on board.
This is my first-person account of what the internet means to the independent creative professional.
