An Ode to Branding

Last April I had a really bad experience with Wells Fargo and wrote about it. Within minutes I had people commenting on their bad experience! It was the fastest response I had ever had to a post! I wrote about my bad experiences several times actually. I was wondering how long it would take for a Wells Fargo representative to notice and leave a comment. As I pointed out, I'll get over my rant but the search engines will continually bring up my story and you would think that Wells Fargo would want to leave it's side of the story, at least say, "Sorry about that, here's a toaster..." or something. But ...
For clarity, this article will use the term "canticle" to refer to the original biblical text, and "ode" to refer to the composed liturgical hymns. The canon dates from the 7th century and was either devised or introduced into the Greek language by St. Andrew of Crete , whose penitential Great Canon is still used on certain occasions during Great Lent . It was further developed in the 8th century by Sts. John of Damascus and Cosmas of Jerusalem , and in the 9th century by Sts. Joseph the Hymnographer and Theophanes the Branded . Over time the canon came to replace the kontakion , a vestigal form of which is ...
Untitled by Anonymous: An Ode to Branding
Conley himself seems conflicted. Ironically, in the biography that he includes at the end of his book he ends up demonstrating his identification (obsession?) with branding. Twenty of the 46 words in his biography are brand names. In listing his professional experiences he names The Atlantic Monthly , Fast Company , The Boston Globe  and ESPN: The Magazine . You would think that an author so riled by branding might instead want to take a stand against it, maybe forgoing the biography; maybe naming the book “Untitled” or attributing it to “Anonymous.” But perhaps he found that “Untitled” and “Anonymous” were brand names ... market research, surveys and trends
Sound Style Guide – The Pros and Cons
Pick up almost any article on sonic branding and somewhere you will find a sentence that exalts the ability of music to connect with ‘people’ on an emotional level. But for any brand – ‘people’ is a very big universe and responsible brand gurus know they’ll need more information than just these broad emotional promises, before they can allocate precious time and money to the sound branding process. Maybe this explains why music and sound still represent a big hole in many marketing strategies. It would seem that the major brands are very aware that when they try to plug this hole with one-off hit music ... market research, surveys and trends


PhilanTopic: An Ode to the T-Shirt
It's Labor Day weekend, the traditional end of summer. Like many of you, I'll be spending it in jeans and a comfortable T-shirt, relaxing with friends and recharging my batteries. Those who know me, know I love T-shirts. Not the $250 Brioni kind recently  written up  in the New York Times . No, I'm talking about tees associated with organizations and causes that throughout the years have shaped my life and life’s work. I don't know what it is, but a T-shirt with an eye-catching design or clever slogan creates an instant connection between the wearer and others, even in ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The biggest sporting event on earth will begins today in South Africa, the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

We all have our favorites to win the tournament, but it’s also a time for us to show our national pride and back our team no matter what the chances are of lifting the trophy at the end of the tournament. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Social Studies teachers seek continued relevance
Social Studies educators have advocated continued relevance and primary importance of their discipline in the country’s educational system in an ever changing and complex society. They stated this view last week, at the maiden edition of a four-day national conference of the Social Studies Department, School of Arts and Social Science, Adeniran Ogunsanya College of Education (AOCOED) Otto/Ijanikin, Lagos. The teachers, drawn from tertiary institutions across the country, argued that social studies education remains the only dynamic discipline with enough curriculum to accommodate, focus on, and address human problems.

Westboro's Lady Gaga cover and ten other weird religious pop culture parodies
in a few weeks). In fact, it's nearly impossible to find a story about this organization that sounds like it remotely could be coming from this reality. Look: We're all about free speech, and the right for folks to say whatever they damn well please. But after hearing the church's "re-writing" of Lady Gaga's "Telephone," and their rendering of "Poker Face" earlier this year, we're all for muzzling these nut jobs. As it turns out, Westboro Baptist isn't new or innovative in their blatant theft of pop-culture to propagandize their teachings. This shit has been happening ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Hello, kids! Hope all is swell. Listen, I'm graduating in 18 days. I'm leaving Knoxville in 19 days. My first grad school applications are due in 20 days. I am not ready for any of that, nor do I think I'll be ready for it in 18, 19, and 20 days, respectively. But, it will be okay. I'm quitting my part-time job next week. I worked at a BP . I didn't tell you, interwebs , but that's what ended up happening after Hargreaves closed during the summer and I came back to school jobless. It's not a bad gig, actually. I know everything about tobacco products, for example. Now, I don't smoke, but I ...
