Find Out Why Appearances Send Strong Messages

photo plus expo breathing color team

On one occasion at a trade show, a friend of mine, who was employed by a competitor, approached our booth and said, “You guys are so serious!….all dressed up in suits!  Come on, these are photographers!  They’re so casual!”

If you ever attend a photography trade show such as Photo Plus, Imaging USA, etc., you’ll come across a handful of companies who sell inkjet media just as we do.  Each company is presenting to the public all that they have to offer.  As you walk from booth to booth, you’ll see samples of all the different types of media, and you’ll hear company representatives explain why their products are better than the competition.  And like clockwork, as my friend referred to above, you will find the representatives from these different companies very casually dressed – either in t-shirts or golf shirts that bear their company logo.

Everyone Just Looks the Same

Despite differences in corporate colors, there aren’t many differences between the appearance and message of these companies.  Imagine how confusing this can be for photographers, who come to this show to learn and make decisions for their business.  After a whole day of visiting these booths, seeing the same types of media but just under different brands, hearing the same claims from representatives who more or less wearing the same attire, it’s a wonder how any photographer could leave the show with a unique message or feeling about any of these brands.

Enter Breathing Color.
