I have been asked to find digital images that we can display throughout our building. Not being real familiar with the Widen Media Collective, I took it upon myself to try to do it on my own. And lo and behold it is a pretty simple system to use. I just typed in a specific keyword on each Collective site and was able to pull up amazing images. We have many companies we work with and thousands of images, so it was pretty fun to get a little more comfortable with our digital asset management programs. It was so very simple to order up an image and have it immediately sent to my inbox within seconds, so I was able to send it to our Graphic Designer for her to add the company logo to it and it was off to our prepress production department.
I wanted to get an image from one of our newest customers for our internal Widen gallery so I went to the National Trust for Historic Preservation Media Collective site to see if there happened to be any images in their digital asset library and they already had several images up and ready to use. So I chose one of their images and it will soon be on the wall near my desk. It is so nice to walk through our company and see all of the images that we have produced and we store here at Widen. My next project is to have a few products displayed here with an image created by our color production team once the product has been photographed in our photo studio. It is just amazing how it all comes together and how it falls into place so simply.
