Catalog Marketing 101 - Creative & Design
It's not creative unless it sells. It may not be the mantra of artists, but it'd better be the mantra of every creative / designer that works on a catalog. The design of a catalog must be focused on generating sales. And, the marketing and creative teams must work together with the same goals of maximizing sales and profits, and the long term growth of the business.
This tutorial walks you through the catalog creative and design process. The creative and design process begins with deciding what type of catalog you're doing. Is it a consumer or business to business catalog? Then from there, the types of products and number of products drive many of the decisions around creative and design. Will this be a consumer catalog or a B2B (business to business) catalog? How many products will be in the catalog; how many per page? What kinds of products? How do you want the catalog to be positioned? These are just some of the questions that this section of the tutorial addresses. Use it as a guide and checklist and it will help you on your way to building a successful catalog.
