Four influential brands and why they're so effective

Getting your brand right is one of the most difficult but potentially valuable parts of running a business. 

In this post I’m going to take a look at some of the most powerful brands in the UK to see what makes them so effective and memorable. 


Björn Borg underwear: why I think they’re the Masters of Marketing

We asked a few friends of the blog to nominate their favourite brands in the Brand of the Year category at Econsultancy and Marketing Week’s new Masters of Marketing awards. Here is Parry Malm with his nomination…

Econsultancy asked me which brand I thought was truly a Master of Marketing.

After much thought, and I’m sorry Kanye, Ima let you finish, the prize goes to Björn Borg, the purveyor of colourful socks and underwear. Here’s why...


What three of the biggest retailers can teach us about ecommerce

Many retailers resort to sales and discounts to boost sales.

However, smarter retailers have demonstrated there's more to it than that. 


How Millennials are changing the face of retail

The rise of the Millennial generation and the approach of its constituents towards their peak earning years, is going to fundamentally change the face of retail in all its forms. 

Whilst the last decade has seen the technology that underpins retail change beyond all recognition, the attitudes of Millennials towards shopping will change almost every way that retailers interact with their customers.

The amazing world of marketing at Coutts

Coutts is a fascinating organisation. 325 years old, sometimes secretive, often philanthropic.

Coutts' head of products, services and marketing, Ian Ewart, spoke at the Festival of Marketing 2014. He gave the lowdown on exactly how such a venerable institution goes about remaining relevant and delighting demanding customers.

Take a peek into the world of those with at least £1m of investable lolly.


How Jack Daniel's uses storytelling to personalise the brand

Jack Daniel’s is a universally recognised brand, but often for different reasons. Most of its marketing focuses deeply on heritage and tradition.

A down-home, deep fried sense of warm hospitality that permeates its ads and copy like a gentle waft of charcoal. 

It’s also permeated by images of Lemmy pouring it on his cornflakes after a night on the Sunset Strip. 

Combining these two perceptions is no easy task, but JD’s new ‘Bar Stories’ campaign manages it with aplomb.

How to rebrand Airbnb

Airbnb rebranded earlier this summer and it was pretty hard to miss, at one point generating enough hundreds of thousands of tweets to top the global trends (partly due to its similarity to an existing company logo).

Recently I listened to some of the guys from DesignStudio, the agency behind the rebrand, talking about the joys and stresses of such a monumental project.

I thought I'd share some tidbits from their presentation and discuss what a brand and a logo means, as well as how one should go about changing it. I'll be concentrating on the creative side of the brief, as opposed to equally important considerations for those in the same boat, such as SEO (if you're picking a new name or slogan) etc.

So, what did a creative rebrand of Airbnb entail?
