We recently settled on a logo for shelby.tv and we’re thinking about biz cards, t-shirts, and stickers in advance of SXSW.
Duh… Pretty sweet to know I’ll have all the people I meet, organized in one spot, and I don’t have to carry around 1000 business cards to hand out and take home again. [Case in point - last night’s excellent NYXSW Demo Bake-off where I met sweet people, hashed ‘em and followed up today, sans paper].
That being said - I do think a future feature for the exciting-tidal-wave-that-is-Hashable will be custom branded #justmet emails. While I love the auto-email, the unfortunate consequence is that you lose a chance to promote your brand.
Now THAT being said, the flip side of this equation is that my photo is included in the Hashable #justmet email and that is excellent branding from a personal perspective. I’ve written before about the humanization of business, so maybe these Hashable people know what they’re doing after all. ;)
Regardless, I won’t have business cards at SXSW. Going green, promoting my friends’ product, whatever you want to call it… Hashable it is. I’ll focus my design efforts on some sweet T’s.
