Today was a thought provoking day, Christian Payne (aka @Documentally) paid a visit to the Fish Media office and I got the opportunity to show him around the Mackney Photography Studio before we grabbed a bite to eat at one of the local ale establishments.
We all had so much to talk about and it seemed as if we were talking at a hundred miles an hour to fit the conversations into the schedule. I’m pleased to say that even though Christian ‘pushed’ Angry Birds under my nose, I still have the willpower not to even contemplate downloading it to my iPhone. Christian introduced both @Colinmitchell and I to a game called ‘iPhone App Top Trumps’, where our follower count and ‘pictures taken’ stats were totally overpowered – luckily Christian let us keep our iPhones.
After covering many different social media based subjects we touched on our avatars and the power of the brand. Christian mentioned the implications of pushing his personal brand away from it’s current connotations, but without watering down the instantly recognisable image.
The hop fuelled beverage at lunch gave me a little inspiration and I’ve explored how we could push the @Documentally Avatar … the results from an hour of pushing around Photoshop can be seen above.
What do you think … can it be pushed?
