The farmers had the right idea… they put the comics in the outhouses, to wipe their asses. And that’s all comics were really worth. But in this country, because there’s so many wealthy people, they make junk worth money.

Finnland’s nazis have hijacked their national symbols like elsewhere in the world too. They decided to recreate a national identity and introduce it at Eurobest in Dezember.

Watch where the beautification of Finnland is going.

100% a Swede, Henrik Nygren, has been assigned with the redesign. His web presence is horribly pretentious though and boring.

Dominating new brands the likes of Google oder Netflix don’t require patina coating like on old navy vessel to gain people’s trust.

People discover new products on the web and trust develops or vanishes immediately during product usage.

A good explanation for the speed of the 21. century: The decrease of time between idea and implementation on behalf of your business and the time between discovery and usage on behalf of your audience.

Embrace Newton’s law of marketing. For every movement or trend there is an equal and opposite counter-movement or trend (Christ Clark / Nitro).

Hipsters are turning away mp3s and reinvest in turntables and vinyl records. Traditional brands are gaining momentum.

Since conversations have moved to digital, your brand story is best told with the aid and efficiency of theme based design and a content management system off the shelf. It increases your agency’s profit margin. Something, the Philadelphia agency has yet to become comfortable with. Excellent typography and user experience though.
