Branding Lecture at NYU

Richard Solomon, Executive Creative Director explains branding during a speech he made as a guest lecturer at NYU:

“Most times I would talk branding and show examples. The last time I did a lecture, I walked pass the Apple Store downtown and had an idea. In class I told the students I was looking to get a new Smartphone and asked if they could give me any recommendations. They all had one – the majority iPhones some Droids. I went around and they said things like “I love it…”, “It’s the best…”, “I do everything with it, great”, “awesome”… At that point I stop and said “think about what you guys just did. You used words like, love, great, best, and awesome to describe an inanimate object that’s less than a pound and fits in your pocket. That’s branding at its best, a strong emotional relationship between a product or service and a consumer – class dismissed”
