Windsor’s Inspirational Artist

Here at AngelStar Digital, we’re a team of passionate designers & producers who have been assisting local business owners achieve their goals & dreams for over 25+ years while supporting Windsor’s Inspirational Artist. In all these years we’ve been operating, we have met a lot of people, learned about their business, what drives them, and their life stories. We love to converse with our clients, get to know them, and build relationships with them.

With COVID-19, political tensions & natural disasters crowding our news outlets, it has brought a lot of negativity into our lives, and the world as a whole. Lately, we have been trying to fill our followers’ news feeds with positive content focused around small business motivation, and featuring local talent in our weekly Friday postings.

However there is one talented individual, with a heart of gold who recently struck my attention….meet Frederick Mason.

Frederick was born in the Town of Leamington, July 1940. He was employed by J. P. Thomson Associates, Architects & Engineers of Windsor,  prior to teaching Architecture & Interior Design for the Windsor Board of Education for over THIRTY years. He earned his B. A. majoring in visual arts at the University of Windsor and his B. ED at the University of Toronto. Frederick fell in love with oil painting around 1985, while he was teaching.

Here’s what Frederick had to say:

“I have been oil painting since 1985. I fell in love with the brush and oil when I went back to University of Windsor to earn one of my degrees while teaching Architecture for the Windsor Board of Education. Teachers do not get raises for how good they teach, they get raises for how much education they have gathered. Never made sense to me. So, this is when I fell in love with oil painting. 

Each time I have painted a subject, I will offer it to them and as long as they hang it up for all to see…..it’s theirs. I love to please people with my artwork. It does not matter if the subject of a painting is not about them, they still take it when offered and hang it up for all to see.”

One of the things that shocked me, was that Frederick told us that in all these years of painting he has NEVER sold one of his pieces. He’s donated almost every piece that he created on one condition…you hang it up for the world to see! Frederick has created many paintings, and has offered them to many local businesses & organizations over the years.

However Frederick’s work has also been enjoyed outside of Windsor-Essex. One of his pieces titled “Global Warming” was even sent to PM Justin Trudeau!

If you thought that was impressive, Frederick even sent a painting to the Louvre in Paris! Which is known as the world’s most visited museum! The painting is of the Notre Dame Cathedral fire.

Frederick’s creates all forms of art pieces, and doesn’t limit himself to one style of painting. He paints a lot of landscapes, skylines, and even art with deeper meaning. Take a look at the piece below. This painting is titled “Where do we go?”.

In this painting Frederick tries to convey a message that global warming isn’t just about humanity, it’s about mother earth’s creatures too! Did you notice the continents were formed to resemble animals? Which ones do you see?

Frederick is a very talented individual, his artwork & charity are a beaming light of positivity in the world, which is why we decided to share his story, and we hope that you will share his story too! Below I have attached more of Frederick’s’ work for you to enjoy! Thank you for reading, and thank you to Frederick for telling us about yourself and letting us feature you!

what is the facebook metaverse

The Metaverse. What is it?

Recently, Facebook has announced that they will be changing their name to Meta. Now I know the question you might be asking…what does this mean? Well at the time of writing this post, nothing. But let’s dive into the meaning behind the change, and why the term “Metaverse” has been such a hot topic as of late.

Here’s the announcement video, if you haven’t seen it already.

If you haven’t been following tech news lately, there has been a plethora of small, and large companies trying to establish the “metaverse” based on popular films & books like The Matrix, and Ready Player One. If you don’t know what those are, I highly recommend looking into them.

So, what exactly is the Metaverse?

Essentially, the Metaverse means that we will be able to live a second-life in a digital world. You can socialize with other “Avatars” (people), shop at your favorite stores, attend work meetings, and explore virtual worlds. There are already some games/entertainment that resemble a smaller form of the metaverse such as VRChat, Rec Room, or even Second Life.

I’ve actually played VRChat and I have to admit, it is quite fun. You can attend virtual comedy clubs, play virtual minigames, all with a VR headset. Here’s a video that shows off some of VRChats best features.

So after watching that video, you get a brief idea of what to expect. However, “Meta” AKA Facebook is trying to turn this into a second world, where everything you can do in the physical world, can be done in this virtual world. Personally, I don’t think we currently have the technology to do so, however I’m not going to be a hater and discredit them.

The Dark Side of Things.

As with everything, giving people the freedom to do as they please often results in bad behavior, especially in a virtual place where there are no “real life” punishments. I can already imagine what people will do when this releases. Trolling, Bullying, Infiltrating virtual business meetings, etc. Those are just minor things I can think of.

Scam or Not?

There are many smaller, crowdfunded startups promising to deliver the Metaverse to their backers. While this is a noble goal, it leaves many skeptical. Let’s take a look at a controversial project that promises to deliver a metaverse, cryptocurrency, and NFTs to their users.

This project is called, Earth 2.

What is Earth 2?

Well currently, it’s a website where you can purchase “virtual land”. And at the moment, that’s pretty much it. The developers promise to make this land usable, but as of now it’s only there to be purchased. There are content creators who have built up quite a viewership covering this topic, and if you are interested here’s a video covering this mess. And when I say it’s a mess, it’s a MESS.

When it comes to this topic, there is a lot to talk about. This is something that will definitely be happening in the future, so all we can do as of now is sit back and watch this new technology play out.

Tune into next weeks blog, where we will be covering another huge, trending topic…..NFTs & Cryptocurrency!

Cryptocurrency & NFTs…Should You Care?

NFT vs. Crypto: What Is the Difference? | Nasdaq

Cryptocurrency, NFTs, Blockchain…these are words we are hearing more and more every day if you follow tech news, and well…they even started leaning into mainstream media as well. So you might ask, what are they and why do I care?

Put in simple words, cryptocurrency is a type of currency that uses digital files as money.  It started gaining popularity with the rise of Bitcoin in the early 2010s, although within the past year it has EXPLODED in popularity forming thousands of smaller cryptocurrencies to be formed. Some of these other popular cryptocurrencies are Ethereum Coin, Doge Coin, Lite Coin, etc.

One of the surprising things is that with the rise of crypto, it’s built many communities based around investing, and has created it’s own culture. What has made it so popular though? Crypto has gained attraction mostly for the investment aspect, people “play” crypto like the stock market, and thats due to how volatile it is. For example, Elon Musk made a tweet about DogeCoin and the price went up 20% in under 24 hours. While crypto can gain traction very fast, it can lose all of its value almost overnight. So invest at your own risk.

Next, let’s discuss one of the newest trends…NFTs. Non-Fungible Tokens are very similar to crypto, but they aren’t a currency. An example of what they are would be Just Bricks NFT. There’s a website selling a limited number of digital photos of different bricks. Why are people buying them? Well because they are a limited quantity meaning that you buy it, you own it, even though it’s just a photo. Another good example of an NFT would be like the Earth 2 website in last weeks metaverse blog. Here’s an explanation of NFTs.

Why Good Customer Service Is So Important.

Having great customer service is something that benefits every single aspect of your business. Not only does it help you generate new customers through referrals and word of mouth, but it also helps with returning customers. It’s a known fact that consumers who have had a pleasant experience are more likely to share it, and more likely to return.

The perfect example, is our business AngelStar Digital. We have been serving Windsor-Essex’s printing & design needs for over 25 years, and still have returning customers since day 1. The primary reason for this is because we are a family owned business, and treat every person that walks into that door with respect, and like a human. We’ve managed to even built up friendships over that period of time, and it’s something we are very proud of.

So if that right there isn’t a solid enough reason you should be prioritizing quality-customer service, i don’t know what is.

On a more direct level, the way you interact with your customers directly reflects the workplace atmosphere, and personality of your business. So if your customer service people have an attitude towards the customer, people will automatically assume they hate working there, and that your place of employment is probably toxic. Which is not exactly a good thing, capiche?

However, what defines great customer service isn’t based on friendliness alone. Below, is a visual to show you what consumers value the most from their interactions with customer service.

This makes customer feedback very important, for all parties involved. Check the ratings for business, one of the primary reasons you will get a low rating is because of your customer service. You could sell the worlds greatest product, but if you don’t resolve people’s issues with it, or don’t seem to care about their problems, then your business will suffer.

Remember this. Even though you are the business owner and they are the consumer, you are both human beings and the interaction between both parties should feel like a human to human experience. Not one of those automated, half-effort responses we are used to dealing with.

 

Remembrance Day 2024: A Time For Reflection & Appreciation.

Every year, on November 11th we celebrate Remembrance Day.

A memorial day originally dedicated to the fallen heroes of the first world war, however it’s evolved into a moment of reflection, and appreciation for all those in uniform.

A Brief History

In 1919, following the end of the first World War, King George V of the British Empire established a memorial known as Armistice day throughout most of the territories within the empire. This memorial was meant to celebrate, honor, and remember the men and women who served during the war, and lost their lives. The original date for this memorial was on the second Monday of November. However, this ended up colliding with Canadian Thanksgiving, and was eventually changed to the 11th, and renamed “Remembrance Day” in 1931.

When Armistice Day was renamed to Remembrance Day, it brought back interest in recalling the wars, and great sacrifices that were made. Eventually, two minutes of silence at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day, poppies, and the recitation of Flanders Field became custom.

 

Remembrance Day, Today.

Growing up, I always remembered taking two minutes of silence to reflect on the soldiers who gave their lives for us, and it always stuck with me. It’s an extremely important day, as I know people close to me who fought in the Afghanistan Wars, and were never the same after they returned. Soldiers are put through hell, from training, to conflict, and beyond, which brings me to my next point.

Ever since it’s birth, Remembrance Day has unfortunately fluctuated in popularity and celebration. Many employers don’t seem to value it’s importance, and refuse to give their employees TWO whole minutes to reflect. Which is undeniably disappointing as these troops sacrificed their lives for our country, and witnessed many gruesome, and unforgettable, life-changing things.

Especially these past few years with the pandemic, it seems that celebration for the memorial is at an all time low.

 

Indigenous Veterans Day

One of the more overlooked memorial days, is the Indigenous Veterans Day which occurs on November 8th. This day is meant to celebrate first nation soldiers, often volunteers who fought side-by-side with fellow “Canadian” troops. Why they were referred to as fighting alongside Canadians, instead of AS Canadians is because during the time their platoons were considered a “separate entity”. However, many first nations in the current day are fighting to decolonize Remembrance Day, and essentially combine both days.

Vehicle Wrap Cost Guide: Factors, Pros, and Cons Unveiled

Vehicle Wrap Cost Guide: Understanding Pricing Factors and Options in 2024

In today’s automotive landscape, comprehending the expenses associated with a vehicle wrap is essential. Here’s an in-depth exploration of the critical factors influencing vehicle wrap pricing, along with the advantages and disadvantages, tailored to current search trends.

Factors Influencing Vehicle Wrap Pricing:

When seeking a quote for a vehicle wrap, several factors come into play:

Vehicle Size: The dimensions of the vehicle significantly impact the overall cost, with larger vehicles generally incurring higher expenses.
Complexity of Design: Intricate and detailed designs may necessitate more labor and materials, affecting the final price.
Material Quality: The choice of materials, ranging from standard vinyl to premium options, directly influences the overall cost and durability of the wrap.
Labor and Installation Costs: Professional installation is crucial for a flawless finish, but it adds to the total expenses.
Turnaround Time: Urgency may affect pricing, with quicker turnaround times often incurring additional charges for expedited service.

Our Comprehensive Process:

  1. Submit a Quote Request: Share vehicle specifications and design preferences to initiate the process.
  2. Review and Approve Pricing: Transparent pricing ensures informed decision-making before proceeding.
  3. Deposit Payment: Typically, a 50% deposit is required to secure the service and initiate the design phase.
  4. Design Mockups and Adjustments: Collaborate iteratively to achieve the desired look and ensure customer satisfaction.
  5. Production and Installation: Professional execution of the design, ensuring impeccable results and lasting quality.

Pros and Cons of Vehicle Wrapping:

Cons:

  • Vulnerability to Damage: While wraps offer aesthetic enhancement, they may not provide the same level of protection as traditional paint.
  • Initial Investment: Quality wraps require a substantial upfront investment, reflecting the value they add to the vehicle.
  • Personal Preferences: Not everyone prefers the appearance or texture of vinyl wraps over traditional paint finishes.
  • Maintenance Requirements: Proper care and maintenance are essential to prevent premature wear and tear on the wrap.

Pros:

  • Customizability: Wraps offer endless design possibilities, allowing for unique and personalized vehicle aesthetics.
  • Minimal Downtime: Compared to traditional painting methods, wrapping typically requires less time for application, minimizing vehicle downtime.
  • Paint Protection: Wraps act as a protective barrier, shielding the vehicle’s original paint from scratches and minor damages.
  • Removability: Unlike permanent paint jobs, wraps can be easily removed or changed, offering flexibility for rebranding or vehicle updates.

Is Wrapping Cheaper Than Painting?

While wrapping is generally considered more cost-effective than painting, the quality of the materials and installation process is paramount. Opting for inferior wraps may result in long-term issues, necessitating costly repairs or replacements.

Ensuring Wrap Longevity:

To maximize the lifespan of your vehicle wrap, adhere to best practices for maintenance:

  • Regular Washing: Keep the wrap clean to preserve its appearance and integrity.
  • Proper Cleaning Solutions: Use recommended products to avoid damage to the wrap material.
  • Indoor Storage: Whenever possible, store the vehicle indoors to protect the wrap from harsh weather conditions and UV exposure.
