Part of being a marketing professional requires you to be up to date on trends, technologies, content, etc.

Even if marketing wasn’t my profession, my inquisitive nature would still lead me to search for cool new stuff.

The following are items that I’ve recently discovered that I think are cool and worth sharing.

Music / James Bay “Let It Go”
On a recent business trip to London and suffering from a severe case of jet lag, I decided to play a relaxing acoustic playlist within Spotify. A voice came through the speakers that spoke of pain and heartache that immediately grabbed my attention. After a few repeated listens, I dove in to learn more about the man behind this voice.

Technology / Nicholas Felton
I’ve become obsessed with data visualization. My partner recently turned on to a gentlemen and his former classmate that has taken data visualization to the next level with the Feltron Report and his Processing app Reporter. Not only does he have a cool name, but he is doing some amazing work. If you don’t know, now you do.

Art / Chuck Close
I’m currently working on line design for my client Bassnectar and after returning from a few recent museum visits in London, art and design is on the mind. But before all of that, I recently visited the Frederick R. Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University for their exhibit of Chuck Close / Face Forward. I took my daughter with me and we were both blown away. If you live in Southern California, this is worth a visit. Hurry, it closes April 5.

Business / Defining Strategy, Implementation and Execution. By Ken Favaro
One aspect of the services I provide is strategy, implementation and execution. This article in the Harvard Business Review is certainly worth reading and sharing. It provides a clear distinction between the meanings and how they fit into your overall organization.
