[One of my more successful “Social Objects” of late: The SXSW t-shirt I did for my client, Rackspace. We printed 3,200 of them, and they all went REALLY quickly. The just FLEW off the table. It was stunning to watch…]
I’ve been talking about Social Objects for a while now. And using cartoons to create social objects i.e. “Cube Grenades” is the main way I make a living.
Whatever your social media strategy is, it needs the object. It needs that thing that people socialize around.
Because people socialize around objects- a product, an idea, a movement, a person- people don’t socialize in a vacuum.
Creating cartoons is my way of creating social objects, but of course, there are other ways.
gapingvoid is basically a little Social Object factory….
Humour is one of the most powerful ingredients to a social object. A joke is a special commodity that generates as much reward in the giving as the getting. It’s no surprise that the evangelist for social objects is a cartoonist. One of the most powerful social objects of my youth (and lives on today decades latter) is Monty Python.
Can we buy them anywhere? Or will you release artwork so we can get some printed up? Cheers Geoff
