The Legacy of Logos

Kelly Glass

Like many other things (it seems), logos have their roots in ancient Egypt. The culture was among the first to use a standardized writing system made up of symbols, with specific colors holding specific meaning. Later in history, medieval Europe prescribed meaning to specific symbols as a part of different crests and coats of arms, each designed to convey the status of the bearer in society and to explain who they were.

These three specialty markets are trending right now and it’s important to consider if you can sell to them and ride those trends to new income streams.

​The Curious Case of the Koozie

Kelly Glass

In 2013, researchers at the University of Washington set out to accomplish a very scientific task: to see if can koozies really do keep our drinks cold. The project, which was eventually funded by the National Science Foundation and the National Center for Atmospheric Research, proved what canned beverage lovers knew all along. We were absolutely right. It does keep canned drinks cold, mostly because the material in the koozie stops condensation forming on the outside of the can, preventing drinks from sweating away their chill.
