Why should you use cartoons?

Cartoons Are Funny

When something is funny, studies show the content is easier for you to recall. This is called the Humor Effect!

People Share Cartoons

Not only do we like to laugh, but we love to laugh WITH others, and #sharing cartoons have never been easier!

Cartoons Work!

Cartoons instantly grab attention, and in that single moment, have the ability to quickly and clearly get your message across.

My Story

Hey there! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and check out my cartoons. Crafted1k has been a project I’ve thought about doing for years, and in 2018 I figured, “wtf, just do it”. So here we go! 

Cartoons are such a fun and powerful medium to communicate from. They break up the boring and mundane, and really captivate our attention…even if it’s just a moment. They help us think, laugh, and reflect on the message being delivered – THAT is where the power is held.

Sales and Marketing have made up much of my adult life (Topsail Creative), and over the past 15 years, one of the most powerful strategies that directly contributes to my success has been – being different. I want to stand out, not act or look like the “next salesman”, but have my customer get to know me, Dave.

It was that philosophy that lead to the creation of Crafted1k. I use the power of cartoons to help you stand out, look different, and find that next opportunity. Oh and about the 1k? Learn more about the inspiration for 1k by reading Kevin Kelly’s essay on 1000 True Fans.

How can you use cartoons?

Bring humor and engagement to Ads, Presentations, Webinars, Books, and Workshops.

Drive increased attention to your Social and Email Marketing campaigns.

Deepen your relationships with your customers by including a character THEY can relate with.

Or just have some fun, because plain text and generic images...well...they just suck.
