MURALS FOR YOUR COMPANY

Murals have become more and more trendy in recent years. And graffiti is no longer something you just look at the street. Graffiti has become art on par with paintings, print and graphic design work. And especially for companies, it’s a great opportunity to quickly showcase their core story and core values.

A mural for your company

At Levende Streg we make murals – and often for companies. Because there is something magnificent and empowering in seeing your business core story and corporate values, must-win battles, taglines and the like become part of a huge artwork like a mural is. That’s why we are also experiencing increasing demand for this type of work. And since we are used to reading complex strategies and comprehensive content, it is of course also part of the process when making wall paintings.

How to make a mural

In fact, the process of making a mural is quite simple, but it takes time and patience. And there is not really any shortcut or quick fix to achieve the most beautiful mural. It just takes a lot of time.

First, we talk storytelling and context with our client. What’s the brand story? How about values and goals? Next, we will outline a sketch for the mural – a sketch that fits the wall chosen for the artwork. Once the sketch is approved, drawing and coloring is started. We first draw a grid on the wall and draw the sketch in size. It may take some time.

Then we begin to shake spray paint cans for coloring. And finally, the outline (the black line goes outside).

Process turned upside down

That’s why it’s very time-consuming to work with murals. And it can be hard to judge the outcome before the outline has been drawn in! You know it from a paint book. It is fun to fill the color between the black lines. But on a wall painting you put a lot of color on first – and finally the black line comes. It takes practice to keep the big overview and reach the goal of a good artwork.

You can see the process in live action in this time lapse video, where Maria Prohazka makes a Thor mural (yes the guy from comic books) to the company Glaze in the meat town.

Comic book mural

At Levende Streg we love comic books and we love murals. That’s why the comic style is so visibly recognizable in our art and the way we draw murals – with the black line fully inked out. Instead of using spray paint for the outline (which may be a bit blurred and shabby-looking), we draw outlines on wall paintings with acrylic markers (ie large markers with acrylic paint). That way, our artworks and murals get a clean and crisp look that oozes of high quality.

Tænker du Video SEO når du bruger video? SEO til din video er nøjagtigt lige så vigtigt for din video, som det er for din landing page. Hvis du ikke allerede nu tænker SEO ind i din eksterne videokommunikation, så er det på tide, at du starter nu. Youtube - en søgemaskine du ikke må overse Youtube er en søgemaskine, nøjagtig ligesom Google (og i øvrigt ejet af samme). Så det er helt afgørende, at du får uploadet dine videoer til søgemaskinen og får beskrevet dit indhold minutiøst ned til sekunder af indhold. For du har brug for, at dit videoindhold bliver søgbart - og kan findes af din målgruppe. Videoer er hot Der bliver set over 5 milliarder videoer om dagen på Youtube, og mediet har over 1,5 milliarder brugere om måneden. https://www.omnicoreagency.com/youtube-statistics/ Youtube er et af tidens vigtigste medier. Vloggers er ligesom kendisser nu om dage. Og børn og unge konsumere Youtube videoer, som aldrig før. Det er en platform i voldsom vækst, hvor brugerne sidder flere timer om dagen foran skærmen. Men bruger du Youtube platformen til dine virksomhedsvideoer? Og husker du at lave ordentlig SEO i din historiefortælling? Din målgruppe er på Youtube Alligevel overser langt de fleste virksomheder Youtube som del af både interne og eksterne kampagner. Youtube kan f.eks. være det helt rigtige medie at rekruttere nye medarbejdere på -eller lave playlister til intern læring. https://theundercoverrecruiter.com/use-youtube-recruitment/ Men Youtube er samtidig også den sociale kanal, hvor din målgruppe bare sidder og venter på at blive underholdt. I gennemsnit bruger din målgruppe ca. 40 minutter om dagen på Youtube. Og de skriger på indhold og gode videoer! Kan du nu se, hvorfor det er på tide at gøre brug af den største video-søgemaskine igennem historien? Ligesom Google Adwords - bare for video Men hvad har det med SEO og virksomhedshistorier at gøre? Det er i virkeligheden meget simpelt. Du skal opbygge din fortælling, så den adresserer forskellige keywords - nøjagtig ligesom i Google, når du laver SEO til dine webpages. Når din video så er uploadet til Youtube, skal du lave en minutiøs beskrivelse (ned til sekunder), som forklarer indholdet af din video. På den måde kan Youtube’s algoritmer finde de relevante keywords - og din video bliver søgbar. Og nu ikke noget med at snyde. Det handler om, at du beskriver dit indhold - så dine brugere og din målgruppe kan finde dit materiale. Playlister er vigtige Nu er du ved at fange, hvorfor du skal bruge Youtube, og hvorfor du skal bruge til på at beskrive dit indhold ned til sekunder. Men hvad med playlister. Hvorfor er de så vigtige. Playlister er den mest effektive måde at beholde dine viewer på din kanal på. Når man er igang med at se en af dine videoer, vil den næste video i din playliste automatisk blive foreslået. På den måde kan du guide din seer til at se det, du gerne vil have dem til. Og du kan give dem relateret indhold til det, de allerede ser. Kan du se pointen nu? Hvordan gør du? 1. Gå ind på Youtube og søg på din niche - eller det, der er relevant for dit indhold. På den måde kan du se, hvad der er populære søgeord på Youtube. 2. På samme måde kan du bruge forskellige Keyword værktøjer, så du finder de rigtige keywords, der skal med i din fortælling. 3. Derefter skal du opbygge din storyline, så det indeholder dine keywords. 4. Når du derefter laver din video, hvad enten det er animation eller live footage, har du de rigtige keywords indbygget i din historie. 5. Når din historie er oploadet til Youtube skal du lave en gennemgribende og gennemarbejdet beskrivelse af indholdet af din video - ned til handling på sekund-basis.
