In Omaha, NE almost 40,000 of the company’s shareholders from across the globe were welcomed to last week’s Annual Berkshire Hathaway Shareholder Meeting.
In attendance was Warren Buffett, the largest shareholder of Berkshire Hathaway. He spent several-hours on the Q&A session. Warren Buffett called this event “the Woodstock of Capitalists.”
There were many exclusive promotional items at this event but among the special edition items were “Berky Bras” and “Berky Boxers” from Fruit of the Loom.
Fruit of the Loom is owned by Berkshire Hathaway, so it was only natural for Fruit of the Loom to offer “Berky Boxers”.

Tar Heel, a nickname which applies to the University of North Carolina athletic teams has provided with a new color for this year NCAA Final Four. In the 1930’s, the name
“Carolina blue” was first mentioned from the UNC’s student newspaper. The Carolina blue, Pantone 278 was founded in 1795 when the University of North Carolina opened for enrollment and it was first seen on the school’s debate society. A century later the Carolina blue was adopted to Tar Heel’s sporting teams.
This coming weekend NCAA Final Four you will see North Carolina’s Tar Heels show off their new color, Pantone 542, a warmer shaded hue from the original Pantone 278. North Carolina’s coach Dean smith requested Mr. Julian for a tweak to Tar Heel’s uniform. The first thing Mr. Julian had noticed some Tar Heel’s blue didn’t match the original Carolina blue. Over the years the Carolina blue has been altered in many different color variations and lost its original hue.
Mr. Julian faced the horror first hand, seeing North Carolina’s newest alumni proudly draped in teal. Mr. Julian had enough and insisted the school’s chancellor for a fix and engaging this matter personally.
North Carolina school’s officials understood the unify behind a single color which they reached out to Nike for assistance. Nike took their time to interview the schools athletics and re-evaluating all details before anything. This project was challenging but thanks to everyone evolved this Saturday, North Carolina vs Syracuse University, Tar Heels will finally be wearing the same inexact color.

For the first time Pantone introduces two shades, Rose Quartz and Serenity as the PANTONE Color of the Year 2016. Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. Serenity is weightless and airy, like the expanse of the blue sky above us, bringing feelings of respite and relaxation even in turbulent times.
As consumers seek mindfulness and well-being as an antidote to modern day stresses, welcoming colors that psychologically fulfill our yearning for reassurance and security are becoming more prominent. Joined together, Rose Quartz and Serenity demonstrate an inherent balance between a warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue, reflecting connection and wellness as well as a soothing sense of order and peace.
Yesterday Diverse Printing was at Advertising Week in New York, and attended the talk and live streamed event with Seth Godin. WOW! A lot of great tips and ideas! If you’re not familiar with Seth Godin, he is very much an original thinker (more of an “Artist of Marketing” than just a Marketer) and posts a daily blog at sethgodin.typepad.com
He posts one blog a day, with uplifting comments and his point of views. He shares his business life experiences for the purpose of teaching and uplifting anyone; business-related or just life in general. Check his blog posts out—we recommend it!
Mr. Godin was an early internet innovator of online business marketing. In 1995, Godin launched Yoyodyne, which used contests, online games, and scavenger hunts to market companies to participating users-it was very successful. In 2006 he launched Squidoo, which by 2008 was one of the 500 most visited sites in the world. His list of business accomplishments is long—Google him for the complete story.
He believes in shaking things up and marketing (or painting, or living, etc.) by approaching things differently—NOT the norm. He’s authored a number of books to further explain this point of view; all his books can be found at sethgodin.com
