If you’re a creative professional, such as a musician or a painter, you know the importance of being specific about the image you show your audience. For example, if you play in a band, you probably spend a great deal of time choosing what to wear or even decorating the stage with props that fit your image. Or, if you paint things, the pieces may have symbols, color schemes, animals or other things that help you send a particular message to the viewer.
Here, we’ll look at how you could use the Greek strength symbol in your art or make it become a part of your appearance. Even if people don’t immediately recognize it for what it is, you’ll have a conversation starter that allows you to explain more about the symbol to them, as well as go into detail about how and why you chose to use it.
Putting the Symbol on Your Marketing Materials
The Greek’s symbol for strength is a circular design that has three slightly curved sections branching off inside of a larger ring. You may decide that it works well to put the symbol on your marketing materials and make it part of your brand. It could become the logo on your business cards or the main image on the homepage of your website.
Since the symbol is so appealing, you could even incorporate it into stickers that get distributed to your customers or fans. People generally like receiving free stickers. And, when they use them, people naturally advertise your brand as they attach the stickers to flat surfaces such as their laptops or car bumpers.
Using the Symbol in Your Art
Your marketing materials indirectly relate to your art because they help more people know about what you do. However, you have opportunities to put the symbol in your art in ways that are even more noticeable. For example, it could be a central part of a design for an album cover. That approach is especially appropriate if you have at least one song on the album about strength, or you want to give the audience the impression that your music conveys being strong.
On a related note, if you or someone in the band is especially artistic, you may ask them to create a custom design that brings the Greek symbol of strength into a temporary tattoo that fans can put on their skin to show off during concerts or other band-related events. You could sell that kind of merchandise along with other items that promote fan loyalty, such as T-shirts and patches.
Then, of course, if you make other kinds of art, choose whether you want to make the symbol obvious or more concealed. It could serve as a focal point for one of the pieces you create, or you may make it less easy to notice. Then, people who look at a drawing, painting, or another kind of piece may feel especially thrilled when they come across it.
Adding the Symbol to Your Appearance
Perhaps the most straightforward to let this Greek symbol inspire what you wear is to don a shirt that features it. If you’d rather show off something slightly different than the actual Greek symbol of strength, consider a creature made famous in Greek mythology, such as the Minotaur. It’s half man and half bull and could give you another way to create a buzz about what you wear.
You might also look for a baseball cap that features the symbol or try and find a scarf that includes it. If you’d rather go with a more minimalist approach, think about purchasing a button that has the symbol and pinning it to your lapel.
There is no single best way to capitalize on the enduring relevance of the Greek strength symbol. The best thing to do is experiment with several methods and see which of them seem most appropriate to your needs and what your audience expects from you.
