  6. 6. The assignment was to create a post about Megan Clifton in 140 characters. @jekeleme I can’t decide what’s cooler: Whitney’s rock-cocaine admission or Megan Clifton’s reject letters with cocaine in them Winter isn’t anything new. But this one is different--an engaging affair of the mind the test of fears not yet conquered, all to be revealed in time. Apparent and clear like the full moon The gravity of these adventures takes my breath, And steals my somber like the nightmares that end in death. I want my certainty...no doubt mapped out straight line to a fulfilled life. All I want is distant travel, good food and time to be a wife. I never fear what I’ve have done that people may find out, only fearing when people seek me, they may see my might succumbed to doubt. But I’ll continue my journey inward facing out, hoping the gasoline line becomes lit and leaves a trail. I’m still young they say; take your time don’t be afraid to fail. The assignment was to create a piece using the lines “...winter isn’t anything The world is still here, nothing new...but new...” and “I see what I see and I don’t like the view.” No other parameters were given. I see what I see and I don’t like the view.

  28. 28. Background Launched during WWI, one year after the introduction of the Kellogg’s Bran Flakes, All-Bran was introduced thereafter in 1916. In 1984 All-Bran sparked a “fiber fad” when they added a health message from the National Health Institute. The cereal has always had a “digestive health” focus but without highlighting the emotional benefits of these claims. The brand’s attempt to renew the conversation began with the “10-Day Promise;” which gives consumers a simple way to incorporate fiber into their daily routine. Competitive Context As a parity brand, All-Bran’s competitors offer the same nutritional benefits and fiber offerings but with greater variety. In the category it is a distant second to Special K (also owned by Kellogg’s) and is on par with Fiber One and Quaker Oats products in terms of revenue. The Original product (the fiber strands) is different than the competitors in the category in flavor and texture; which may also play a part in its smaller market share versus Special K. Personality The brand embodies the “SAGE” archetype and gently communicates a call-to-action for healthy living to consumers who are nutritionally conscious. All-Bran’s Audience The Millenial segment (18-24-year-olds) are more likely to purchase functional foods (including fiber products) as a way to make up for their less-than-healthy eating habits. This segment is willing to lead a healthy lifestyle as long as it’s convenient for them and satisfies their inner conscience. High-fiber foods are seen as a critical part of a healthy diet, but the common perception is that fiber is not appetizing. Brand Value All-Bran provides a very simple way to help your body work better. One serving of All-Bran can provide the fiber you need to lead a healthy lifestyle, How does the brand own its “healthy promise” to consumers? The “10 Day Promise” messaging helps drive the point of why consumers should care about their fiber intake. The brand has created a social engagement platform on its website that makes it easier for consumers to find other people who care about healthy eating and can feel supported about their healthy lifestyle efforts.
  29. 29. Assignment Brand Story Brand S ynes th esia the fragrance repertoire
  30. 30. Wednesday, 7am. home: I wake up from a slightly unsettling dream about this cocktail party I have to plan for in one week. My boss, Helen, seems to think that I handle the stress of event planning very well since I haven’t cried like her other assistants before me. I wish I could tell her that I actually don’t fear her but shamelessly want her job; my ambition manages to completely quell my nervousness when I have to interact with her. I have my Wednesday morning meeting preparation down to a science--shower and lotion for 7 minutes, dress to kill in 3 minutes, apply my black liner and red lipstick in 3 minutes and then top it off with my walk-through and turn in my favorite scent I’ve named Naked Ambition; my complimentary mix of SPICY WOODY & WATER from my Synesthesia fragrance repertoire. I like to think my perfume puts me in the right head space--its sexy and strong but also exudes a “mellowness” after 2 hours--and it’s perfect for this kind of day. 7:05 pm., leaving work. I’m wrapping up my day and ready to meet Dana and her friends in Chinatown after work. And I need a pick me up; so naturally I grab my stock of Red Bull in the fridge and my “good luck” vial of my FLORAL SPICY perfume to rub on my pulse points. I call it my good luck perfume because every time I wear it, I always end up with a phone number or free drink by the end of the night--so naturally I’m going to wear an extra dose tonight. Saturday, 11am. home: Received a text from Dennis, a really cute grad student I met at the bar with Dana and her friends from last night; he wants to see if we can catch a matinee. That damn perfume works like a charm every time. I’m glad he wants to meet in the daytime-- I can decide if I really like him when we get a chance to really talk without low lighting and alcohol. The cute afternoon date is so comfortable; I’ll probably wear my new sundress and my CLEAN scent-- it’s got a casual and crisp smell that makes me skip. Monday, 11:15am. work: My boss seems to be in an unusually good mood; and by good mood I mean she actually managed to say please when she asked me to come into her office before noon. No one is allowed in her office or really allowed to ask her questions in the morning--she claims it gives her unnecessary migraines-- it’s her attempt at being proactive. She tells me the VP of Marketing at HBO is excited about the cocktail party at our museum and he would like to capture some raw footage for promotional vignettes. I’m so excited I almost hugged her; but of course I just awkwardly bowed and excused myself from the office. 1:30pm. work: I look for my phone to tell Dana the good news. I see a text from Dennis that he sent early in the morning. Can’t wait to see you again, you always smell so delightful. Meet me from drinks tonight? xoxo Dennis. SCORE! I can’t wait for the end of the day. Good thing I brought my new heels and my FLORAL SPICY perfume. Who knows maybe he’ll be my new date for the cocktail party.
