Un excelente tutorial (link) de @TwitterUK acerca de como escoger un #Hashtag adecuado.
El hastag (#) se ha convertido en uno de los bienes mas valorados de cualquier campaña de marketing en las redes sociales. Las marcas que crean un hashtag efectivo y lo emplean correctamente, maximizan los beneficios de usar redes sociales. Cabe anotar que los hashtag no son exclusivos de Twitter, y otras redes sociales como Facebook y Google+ los usan, sin embargo, los principios son los mismos.
Resumiendo, los hashtag mas efectivos son los que son memorables fácilmente y se pueden relacionar con campañas en otros medios como Televisión, Medios Impresos, y Correos Directos.
Hoy por hoy, el hashtag no es un accesorio de una marca para una campaña de marketing en redes sociales, es uno de los pilares fundamentales para la ejecución efectiva de la campaña.

I Found this article about the Graphic Artist and Graphic Design, and I think it is very interesting. Some times I wondering the same thing…
Graphic artists, like all artists, create works that are born from or meant to convey an emotion or feeling, or are meant to set a mood. Professional graphic artists simply use their creations in a commercial way. Graphic artists craft scenes and images using visual media such a photographs drawings, and computer-generated images. These are used on everything from tissue boxes to the walls of buildings. Their work is used to market products and ideas.
Graphic designers solve visual communication problems with images and text. The key goal of graphic designers is to convey a message that causes the viewer to take some kind of action. This could mean getting a website visitor to move his eyes down the page or causing a consumer to identify with a logo or symbol. Artistic appeal is secondary to function, and the layout is meant to lead the eye in a natural sequence.
Shunga is a Japanese Term for Erotic Art, and it’s literal translation is “Pictures of Spring”, being Spring an euphenism for Sex. Very appropriate, now that is the end of Winter, and Spring is around the corner. Shunga is part of the ukiyo-e genre of woodblock prints and paintings common in the late 17th century.
The Britsh Museum had a beautiful exhibit, “Shunga, Sex and Pleasure in Japanese Art“, unfortunately it closed in January.

Art Battle is a live competitive painting event. 12 painters will create the best work they can within 20 minutes. As they work, the audience moves around the easels, allowing them an up-close view of the creative process. The medium used is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any other non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes for their favourite painting and can later place bids in a silent auction to take a painting home.
