Googles see inside

Googles “Busi­ness View” — another way to show your busi­ness: From Inside

Finally we man­aged to cre­ate the logo for our new project “” — it was a bit of a bat­tle to get it done, three dif­fer­ent mean­ings, three dif­fer­ent tastes .. Can you imag­ine what was going on yes­ter­day .. no and yes and no and nearly ..   now we got it — what do you think?

What the “” does: Our bril­liant phở­tog­ra­pher Bern­hard has a Google Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion as a phở­tog­ra­pher to pro­duce the pic­tures for Google’s See Inside projects. Soon our web­site will be pub­lished, if we ever fin­ish it … ha, ha .. with our three dif­fer­ent tastes men­tal­ly .. So, in the moment we are in Ger­many to do the pro­duc­tion for Hotels and Restau­rants and for some small shops. We are very excited to start our new project, we call it “The 2015 see inside gig”, and we are excited to meet all the lovely busi­ness own­ers and learn a lot about their dif­fer­ent require­ments and busi­nesses. Please feel free to con­tact us via e-mail if you have some­thing to say, it would mean the world for us to get some feedback.

Here is an exam­ple — the famous Bern­hard pro­duced this for  “Küchen Trio” in Alzey, Germany.

My new project Jan. 2013

A new year — a new project !

Hello and wel­come back, my Dear friends,

Frank, a friend of mine, started 3 years ago cre­at­ing his own music, after play­ing in dif­fer­ent bands, actu­ally we spent our teenage time together and I trav­eled a lot around with him and his band — long, long time ago, … ha, ha .. get­ting old.

Any­way, now, Frank will release his fourth album in Spring 2013. The music is done, all is in the “box”, we are wait­ing only for the CD cover design and print.
The fourth album “Bosporus” includes more ori­en­tal influ­ence — I’m really excited.

So, any­way, I started cre­at­ing his new web­site in Eng­lish, which is still under con­struc­tion. Mark (Bayliss Graph­ics) helped me a lot with the trans­la­tion from Ger­man to Eng­lish ‚…  and he is still doing it. Thanks Mark !

But we have to do a lot more: social net­work (Pin­ter­est, Twit­ter, Face­book, etc. …), Mark startet the pro­duc­tion of some videos for YouTube and as I said, the cover design of the new album is on the way,  I’m cre­at­ing the first con­cept of the PR, not easy for me, .… if some­body would like to get involved please write me an e-mail.

Please have a first look at the new website:

Thanks a lot to everybody !

Best wishes from Elke

Band The Flame

What I do at the moment:

Most of my expe­ri­ence in the graphic indus­try is use­ful  for the hotel –and cater­ing branch as well. In the moment I’m  work­ing as a free­lance mar­ket­ing advi­sor for a medium sized hotel in Ger­many, near Berlin. This is my main project in March and April 2012. I real­ized where the main prob­lem zones are in the hotel, because luck­ily I know it from the past, back to 2007/2008.

To cre­ate a good work­ing con­cept incl. a new web design is at least a 10-week full time job for one per­son.
Start­ing with the redesign of the cor­po­rate iden­tity of the hotel incl. the restau­rant and end­ing with a lot of con­sult­ing hours I have done so far a good job there. My main focus after fin­ish­ing the design work is to teach the staff how to work with social media accounts and how to improve the cus­tomer ser­vice. This is one of my main focus when I do a project for a company.

A basic think­ing should be: only if the col­leagues are happy, the cus­tomers and guests will be happy as well.
I learned a lot from Sainsbury’s and I’m thank­ful that I’ve got the oppor­tu­nity to work in this com­pany for over two years.
Espe­cially  in Ger­many we can learn a lot from the UK in the cus­tomer ser­vice field. Back in Ger­many I see every day a lot of mis­takes, also after got spoiled in Eng­land and in Asia in the last 4 years.

What else can I tell you? I real­ized that not many small Ger­man com­pa­nies take the advan­tage of social media oppor­tu­ni­ties to get more out of their mar­ket­ing efforts and pub­lic relationship.

If you find some mis­takes in the this arti­cle — I say sorry, my Eng­lish is not per­fect, please feel free to tell me what I did wrong.
There will be soon a Ger­man ver­sion of this web­site avail­able. This will be much eas­ier for me to write some articles.
