  4. So, let’s talk about brands and design
  5. Brands first:
  6. To some, the brand is just a logo… Photo: captcreate
  7. Brands seduce us into buying stuff we don’t need Photo: james@mannequindisplay.com
  8. They’re about the image in the mind of the consumer
  9. They are spreading capitalism around the globe
  10. Brands are all about advertising….
  11. But if that were true, how come they’re worth so much?
  12. Because they create meaning. And meaning we crave.
  13. They drive innovation. And give direction to design Photo: blakie
  14. They create focus, especially in B2B businesses.
  15. They can even turn around entire companies
  16. So: there’s an internal side
  17. internal
  18. And an external side
  19. internal external
  20. There’s vision…
  21. internal external vision
  22. And there’s action
  23. internal external vision action the brand is a relationship
  24. Now, let’s talk about design
  25. Design is expensive and exclusive
  26. Design is Jan des Bouvrie
  27. Design is the shiny layer around crappy products
  28. Design is Droog
  29. But design is also about mesmerizing beauty Photo: malingering
  30. And the power to achieve the impossible Photo: ruuku h
  31. Design solves real problems…and saves lives
  32. And it conveys meaning through design semantics
  33. Design is multi disciplinary Photo: daphoid
  34. And finally, with IKEA, everyone has become a designer Photo: joost v e
  35. So: design connects technology….
  36. technology
  37. … to art….
  38. technology art
  39. … .and planning….
  40. technology art planning
  41. … to doing
  42. technology art planning doing Design is a connecting process
  43. Did you see the parallels ?
  44. the brand is a relationship internal external vision action
  45. So …. branding & design
  46. The brand design interface > brand activation through design > design fulfills the brand’s promise… & the brand provides guidance for design > The trick is to manage the interface… … .between branding, innovation and designmanagement
  47. The brand/design interface is like newton’s cradle
