The Artist Nemo – Building His Brand and His Business

The Artist Nemo knows how to build his brand through social media

Some time ago I met local Denver artist Nemo on Twitter and decided to follow him and see how he was using social media to build his brand.  I was impressed by how he was connecting with his followers and learned that he was new to the area.  He was doing all the right things on social media to build his brand – using Twitter, creating a Facebook page, building a blog and most importantly – building relationships.  Nemo is his brand. 

I learned on Twitter that he was going to be showing a few pieces at a gallery in one of our local art districts, The Arts District on Santa Fe and decided to check him out in person.  When I first met him he had a cap that said Nemo and a flashing name tag – there was no mistaking that Nemo was in the house.  According to his tagline, Nemo is an “American Graphique Couture artist who composes his subjects by drawing perfect freehand circles and spirals in pencil on paper”.
A  year has pasted since our first meeting and today I saw Nemo at the prestegious Cherry Creek Arts Festival where he had a booth.  He has come a long way in such a short time in building his brand and his business.  You can follow Nemo on his website and follow him on Twitter at Artbynemo .  I invite you to take a look at his art.
