We're always amazed when a format that feels like it must have been done by hand is actually manufactured by machine! This clever sliding interactive mailer from our friends at Information Packaging in Toronto is both engaging and production efficient! Simply tear off the lead edge of the mailer, and pull the tabs for a smooth, sliding reveal right and left and a merge of imagery in the center. A lift of the cover opens to an interior two-panel spread.
Sometimes something works so well, you need to make it twice! From our friends at Pageworks in Grand Rapids, Mich., this week's featured format comes in a pair - a set of brochures designed by the team at the legendary Herman Miller company for a conference they were hosting. They chose the rare and exciting Long Triangle fold and dressed it with bold color for additional impact. A few smart production tricks made all the difference - and you'll find out why in this can't-miss episode.
We decided to kick off our 2018 season with something fabulous from The Museum of Modern Art! Lucky recipients of a gift membership to the museum received their membership card (and a store coupon) in this twisted accordion package. Using bold colors and typography, this simple brochure takes the form of a rectangle when folded, and delivers a surprise twist and turn when opened. We think you'll be inspired by this stylish, clean and modern design from MoMA!
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
