“Every advertisement should be thought of as a contribution to the complex symbol which is the brand image.” - David Ogilvy
A brand is a system of signs and symbols that engages the consumer in an imaginary/symbolic process that contributes tangible value to a product offering. As a sign system, brand communication is achieved through a complex matrix of signifying elements, including material,structural, conventional, contextual, and performative dimensions. Many organizations and startups make guesses about their brand. They "envision" a name, a mark, a promise, and imagine that it will resonate with consumers. Using Lean Startup and Lean UX concepts of formulating hypotheses, stating assumptions, and testing with customers, enterprise product managers and startup founders can apply a more rigorous approach to building and testing their brand.
