  • Nicely done. For me, the important thing about rules is also to break them. Clearly, logic is some of the best ammo one could ever possess, but chaos and the X-Factor are also good wrenches in the gears. Is it quirky, ironic, memorable, ressonative? Quite simply, does it feel right?

  • If Carl Jung could send us religious symbols of his most famous experience with theSolar Phallus Man would he do so to someone that always carried an camera and took photos of everying that looked unusual?

    See the presentation of a broken bird egg that was thrown on my car...I thought it was a 'bird dropping' but it was about nine inches long so I am really not sure where it came from.

    With Photoshop and many years of explorations of the bird egg that seemed to depect a standing man with a penius (phallus) and the area above his shoulders barley visible it all became more interesting when I read that Jung wrote....'The Solar Phallus Man carries on his shoulders the burden of proof of the exisence of an Universal Unconscious'. When Kodak cfreated the first way to print a negative in a do it yourself machinen, very common today with digital cameras, I was able to use the filters to enhance the negative with an ULTRAVIOLET FILTER and that area became visiblel. It was so interesting that I created a Powerpoint presentation showing what may be a manifestation of the Solar Phallus Man and the religious symbols he carried on his shoulders to prove the existence of the ability of the genes in our bodies to carry the relilgious memories of our ancestors as he believed all his life...take a look and maby you too will relisious symbols that it may contain. p.s. how do i download the presentation?

  • I think build on the BBH ESP (emotional selling proposition) point in your Q3 on how to make it different.
    There is such a large body of evidence on decision making being rooted in (I like Klein in 'Science of Happiness' making the distinction between emotions (which happen to us) and feelings as our reactions to our emotions)
    so why not add to Q3 with 'how will your brand communications stir emotions?'
    This then adds to better designed research by asking the right questions of responses to intended strategy.

  • I think build more on the BBH ESP (emotional selling proposition) as so much evidence exists on how we make decisions rooted in emotions (I like the distinction in Klein's the Science of Happiness between emotions and feelings - emotions happen and feelings are our response).
    So maybe add to your Q3 on 'make it different' with an ESP based question - 'how will you stir emotions in brand communications?'
