    Posted by Stacy Jones on September 13, 2018 at 11:27 AM

    The Problem

    Some people in our office get hundreds of emails every day - like myself.  It is ridiculous. Others get a small handful. But there is one thing that remains consistent across the board - people often forget to do the actions requested in the emails.  And I’m absolutely at fault as well.

    It took me quite a long time to realize that the overriding issue was really nothing more than... a lack of organization. Regardless of the individual, it was not based on a shear attempt to ignore the requests or action items needed by others on the team or - gasp - clients.  In this blog, Hollywood Branded discusses how our team has addressed a challenge felt across the nation by businesses of all types, everywhere: how to deal with email organization.

    Case Study: What Brands Can Learn From Creating A New Brand Identity

    Modernizing Your Brand Can Yield To Major Sales And Awareness Changes

    Sometimes a brand just needs a few tweaks to make it become a pop culture sensation. And those tweaks may involve the overall brand identity.  One such brand that experienced a complete turnaround by getting a full makeover was the Anime Expo, a meteoric, four day event celebrating Japanese pop culture and entertainment. Not only is it an anime centric cesspool hosting hundreds of thousands of fans, but it just might be the holy city for would be anime cultists. The dedication is real.

    With the majority of these fans setting aside months of planning and networking for this event alone, the result is the amoebic construction of a global community obsessed with one ideal. But before the brand makeover, there was a disconnect and the powerful potential of the expo was languishing. In this blog, Hollywood Branded shares how one branding company completely rebranded and evolved the brand identity of an event to make Anime Expo become the top anime convention in the world.
