New Bolder Look, Same Brilliant Services.

New Bolder Look, Same Brilliant Services.

Das Studio has evolved! Not only in the quality of our work, but also in our total brand identity. We celebrate our 6th year of Making Brands Better. We are blessed to work with our lovely local and worldwide clients. It was time for a rebrand to match our ever-growing passion and dedication to exceptional design.

 

New Colour Palette

We’ve said goodbye to monochromatic teal and Hello to fresh, vibrant colours for our brand. Our new colour pallets highlight our personality and professional services. We don’t limit ourselves to any singular design trend, so why should be we bound to a singular colour? Just as there are thousands of unique businesses, there are limitless design possibilities.

Two Distinct Words

You may have noticed the added space in Das Studio. We did this to clear up any confusion on the name. Capitalizing the two words has shed light on the meaning of the title — “Das Studio” (that’s German for “The Studio”). Yes, we’re that fancy. 
 

Refined Slogan

After much thought, we feel that we have found a slogan that defines us! Making Brands Better. Yep, that is our mission, summarized in three words. It made sense to add this to our logo tagline since this is exactly what we do! It is our passion and privilege to create sleek and functional designs for each brand we work with.
 
 

Gimme More

Besides our visual brand identity, we’ve revamped the Das Studio website. Our website has gone through a full makeover and extensive testing. Its’ performance and appearance are top-notch, head to toe. It’s not only really ridiculously good-looking, but it is also intelligent. Now, that’s sexy!

2. Click create a new Product.

3. Choose an existing product (One already created so it is all correct). Hover over product and click “Duplicate”

4. Edit product name match the new product. Try to include what the product is rather than just “Forrest Birds”. Include “Die” or “Stamp” in the title as well.

5. Update Catagory checks. Check the category it belongs to (Example: Stamps) and the subcategory it may fit into (Example: Nature).

6. Update your tags. Tags to include catagory, brand, designer, what it is, color, pattern, size etc.

7. Replace Product Image. If the product has multiple images then use the best image as the “product feature image” and the secondary images as “product gallery” images. Include the product title and any other relevant information on your product image. This will make it easier to find again in the future.

8. In the “Product Data” section located under the title please update
The price (Under the General Tab).
The stock and SKU (Under the Inventory Tab).
Linked products (Under the Linked Products Tab).

9. Lastly, update the description at the bottom in the “Product Short Description” section.

Now to create a variable product you do everything about but also:

1. In the product Data section, in the drop-down menu that says “Simple Product” please change it to “Variable Product”.

2. Click on the “Attributes” side tab. In the drop-down menu choose how your product varies (by color, size, pattern etc). Click “Add”.

3. In the Values box type in your different variations.
(For example, if you had an ink pad in different colors you would type in the first color and find it in the list)

4. If the variation you are looking does not come up in your search click on “Add New” to create a new variation.

5. Once you have chosen all your variations (You are allowed up to 50). Check the box that says “Used for variations”. And click “Save attributes”.

6. Now go to the “Variations Tab”, click on the drop down and choose “Create variations from all attributes”. Two pop-ups will appear, click “OKAY” for both. All of your attributes will show up underneath.

7. For each attribute, assign a price, SKU, stock, and image.

8. Assign an image by clicking on the blue square. (This will help clients when they choose the color or size from the product drop down it will bring them to the image this chose. )

9. When you are done editing all of the variations, click “Save changes”.

10. Lastly, assign a product image from one of the variations (The best photo). And add all other variation images to the product gallery. (This is so when they click through on the product page they see all the variations.

TIPS:

All product images should be square and 700 pixels by 700 pixels. Try to center them if you can with some space around the product. For a clean professional look. The more photos the better (for showcasing your product).

Good luck! And don’t be afraid to ask questions!

Naming Your Business

Naming Your Business

Naming your business can be scary and it should be done carefully since it will represent you wherever you go!

What’s in a name?
For a business name to be an effective advertising tool it must be easily understood by the consumer what your business does and who the targeting audience is. Being mysterious or misleading will confuse and drive customers away.

Some things to think about:

Does it clearly describe the products or services offered?
Don’t waste anyone’s time by giving the wrong impression about your products and/or services.

Does it reflect the values of your business?
Think about how you want your business to be perceived.

Is the name memorable?
Separate yourself from the competition by being unique. Choose a name that doesn’t already exist in the market. Keep it simple and avoid abbreviations and acronyms. Names that are easy to pronounce and spell are easy to remember.

Are you legally allowed to use it?
By law, your business name cannot be the same or similar to an existing corporate name or trademark. To avoid running into this issue do some online research to be sure that it is unique!

Naming your business is one of the hardest decisions you will face when launching your business. You may come across advice that is based on people’s opinions and preferences and not on practical evidence.

Hiring a professional can help you with creating a perfect name and navigating the trademark laws.

What The Heck is WordPress?

What The Heck is WordPress?

Often business owners question… “What the heck is WordPress?” If you are wondering the same, you are reading the right article. Here are a few reasons why you would want to use WordPress and how you and your business can benefit from it.

Why WordPress?

WordPress is often mistaken as just a blogging platform. Although that used to be true, it has evolved over the years into a versatile content management system. While WordPress is still a great blogging tool you can also use it for fully functional responsive websites.

The best part about WordPress is that it is so simplistic and easily understood by many users. 22.5% of websites on the Internet are powered by WordPress. Many of the top brands use WordPress to power their websites including but not limited to: Time Magazine, Sony, Jay-Z, LinkedIn, eBay, and more.

WordPress is Easy to Manage

WordPress comes with build-in updater feature that sends reminders when a plugin or a theme is out of date. Keeping your WordPress theme updated ensures your website has a backup version and will run smoothly.

From a client perspective, using the WordPress platform is very beneficial. It allows you to login to your website and make changes with ease without having to hire a developer/graphic designer to make changes to price tables or text on your about page.

What type of website can I launch with WordPress?

The possibilities are endless. If you have a business, an artist or simply have something to say WordPress is the right choice for you.

You can use WordPress as the following:

  • Arcade
  • Blog
  • Content Management System (CMS)
  • Gallery
  • Portfolio
  • Rating Website
  • Shopping Store
  • Video Collection Site
  • Membership Site
