Steve Jobs 1955 – 2011

Many people woke this morning and read about Steve Jobs’ untimely passing on a device that bore the brand Apple. Fifteen years ago that would have been unthinkable. Steve Jobs fits into the classic mould of the maverick. Irritable, Stubborn, Driven, Passionate, Genius, Visionary, Impulsive, good and bad in equal measures. An immigrant son, adopted, college dropout he proved that by simply ‘thinking different’ you can achieve great things. He cared and taught that form and function could be partners rather than diametrically opposed. There were times when Apples’...

Branding helps your business grow

Maybe I’m preaching to the converted here but having a clear identity not only allows you to differentiate yourself from the competition, it also enables you to clearly signal changes and growth within your organisation. This piece in the Washington Post, highlights how business and utilities use branding to signal a clear change of intent, personality and focus. Moving from being a simple function of naming into something more characterful, emotive and dare I say it ‘holistic’ a good branding strategy and a programme of consistent implementation will strengthen and protect...

It’s always nice to be recommended by one client to another, we were introduced to Per Ardua in 2009 and have worked with them since then to refresh their brand both in print and online.

The end of Brand Hollywood?

Ricky Gervais punctures the Hollywood bubble at the Golden Globes. Let's be clear about this, Gervais is a cult. A marmite. You either love him or hate him, you either get him or you don't.

S4C Eisteddfod identity looks very familiar

I don’t think this has happened to me before. You’re sitting down to watch some TV and there it is! Something that looks pretty much like something you designed months and months ago… but it’s not yours, it’s not something that you designed… it’s very close though, you could almost say inspired by or in homage to, the cynic would obviously say ‘ripped off’ or ‘stolen’ but we don’t want to use words like that here… naturally I’m very flattered… Have a look and decide for yourselves… S4C ident for...
