New York pushes for Calorie Content Labels with a Twist

Label Design with Exercise to Calorie Rating

New York is proposing a new food label campaign – that displays how much exercise you’d need to work of that many calories. Just one bottle of soda or juice can equal 50 minutes of running or other cardio to burn off the fatty calories from sugar – but what we’re interested in is the physical nature of the campaign. The design! The execution!

The campaign so far has featured posters showing a map of the 3 miles you’d have to walk to burn off 20-onces of soda – from Union Square in Manhattan to Brooklyn – In the NYC Subway System.

We love this change, as the focus on what’s in our food becomes more clear, eating healthy is also easier when the facts are presented to everyone.

Now accepting credit card payments!

Credit Card Payment for Design Services

You asked for it, we delivered! We’ve accepted PayPal payments since the start, and though you can pay via credit cards through PayPal, one of our clients noted how cumbersome this was. So we did some research, and got setup with a nice payment gateway that is entirely secure via verified SSL and extra web security. Keeping with our all-digital environmentally friendly system, our invoices are live web generated and emailed – all you have to do is click “Pay Invoice” from your email. You can quickly and easily enter your credit card information, submit payment, and receive a “thanks!” from all of us at CreativeMade™.

Our printing is environmentally friendly.


Is Printed Marketing Material More Environmental Friendly Than Online Marketing?

Maybe. Here are some interesting facts we read on the internet:

• One email, with a 400k attachment, sent to 20 people, is equivalent to burning a 100w light bulb for 30 minutes.

• Reading the news online for more than 30 minutes can consume 20% more energy than reading a traditional newspaper.

• Performing two google searches uses up as much energy as boiling the kettle for a cup of tea

• Pizza can contain every group of the food pyramid.

10 Do’s and Don’ts of Email Marketing

  5. Test, test, test. There are a myriad of email clients out there and they all interpret HTML differently. Continue reading 10 Do’s and Don’ts of Email Marketing
