Trending Now: Trend #2 New Sophistication

One of the major tones in promotional products for 2013 revolved around a refined, classic and streamlined style. A generous sampling of both apparel and hardgoods were blessed with chic design. When I mention the buzzwords “New Sophistication,” I envision the colors black, platinum and gold. I think of old Hollywood glamour- Rita Hayworth, Lauren Bacall and Elizabeth Taylor. “New Sophistication” also lends itself to the handsome sensibilities of Clark Gable and Paul Newman.

How does the trend carry over to promotional products? Think chrome finished writing implements, sleek black tablet cases, rhinestone accented sunglasses, brushed silver desk accessories or a tastefully blinged out tumbler. The looks are polished and professional- leaving a perfect impression to the end user.

Here are a few of the products that define “New Sophistication” to me.

Rutherford Blazer. Available in black and navy.

20 oz. Spirit Ice Tumbler with straw.

Ogio Pearl Polo

Callaway Chamberlain Ballpoint Pen

Brookstone Women’s Amenity Case

Palmdale Polarized Sunglasses

Branded Houses: Unique Promotional Products Coming Soon to a Neighborhood Near You

Mobile advertising company Adzookie recently announced that it is looking for homeowners who will allow the exterior of their houses to be branded in exchange for a monthly mortgage payment. The company received an overwhelming response: thousands of people are apparently ready and willing to live inside of unique promotional products in exchange for a little dough.

Adzookie’s recently-launched mobile advertising platform has gained momentum lately, and this publicity stunt is its boldest move yet as it takes on larger ad networks such as Google’s AdMob and Apple’s iAd network – though neither of these seem to have thought to market their services through the use of unique promotional products like Adzookie.
