The Big Issue is all about ‘Helping People Help Themselves’ and recently the Sketchiest of our Sketchers, Matt, helped out by designing a poster showcasing the Big Issue process and how it helps homeless, marginalised and disadvantaged people positively change their lives.
Since 1996 The Big Issue magazine has created a sustainable social enterprise that makes a real difference in the lives of those who buy, sell and create it.
So next time you see a Vendor, spend $7 and get a great read while feeling good. Oh, and keep an eye out for Matt’s poster!
Re-use. Recycle. Re-Purpose.
We’ve all gotten pretty good at recycling our glass and paper and plastics.
Well, you can do the same with your video.
Videos for your business aren’t cheap to make.
So once you’ve made that big investment, surely there’s a way you can get a bit more bang for your buck.
Something more than one video to put on your website, YouTube or wherever.
At Sketch Videos, we care about the environment. And we care about your environment.
So when we make you a video, we want to make sure you get as much use of it as you can.
You want shorter versions for use on social media?
We’ll cut your video down to size.
You want a screen saver from a key image for all your staff?
Happy to help.
You want a version with captions?
We’ll type ‘em up.
You want to make a powerpoint presentation with arresting images?
Talk to us and let’s make it happen.
When we design your video, we design it with elements that are unique to your business. Your specific messaging. So they can be used in many unique ways. Posters. Coasters. Make the most-ers of it all. This is artwork styled to your needs, so make sure that all your needs are met.
Do you know that smiling triggers activity in your brain?
Smiling activates neural messaging that benefits your health and happiness.
Smiling has so many amazing benefits – it reduces stress, and helps generates positive emotions.
Smiles are good for both your physical and mental health.
Smiles are also great for helping communicate.
Because smiles help people remember.
Laughter is an attention grabber. Humour gets people engaged.
Funny helps people learn and retain information.
It relaxes an audience so they’re more receptive to the message you’re giving.
Humour allows us to hear ideas in new ways. It brings the light to the shade.
“If you’re going to tell people the truth, you’d better make them laugh. Otherwise they’ll kill you.”
At Sketch Videos we recognise the power of the smile.
We have a team that loves to laugh.
And if it’s appropriate for your video, we love to bring the smile in.
With words, illustrations and sound effects. Whatever it takes.
So let’s sketch your way to a smile.
