Davis Brand Brief: June 2014

DBB_June2014

Unbound Edition began as an experiment. The consulting team at Davis Brand Capital wanted a better way to share what we were all seeing, reading and learning from the four corners of the world. Our perspectives – strategic, economic, cultural and creative – are most valuable when they intersect with and modify each other. Helping that happen is how we have built a firm known for holistic approaches to achieving brand clarity. Unbound Edition captures some of the raw clay we work with on a daily basis to stay informed, current and engaged.

CREATIVE

Published in March of 2009, The Siren Call of “Data Porn 2.0” highlighted the inherent seduction of presenting complex data sets in visually elegant ways, warning consumers and conveyors of information to be ever more vigilant against style over substance.. Have brands and consumers heeded that warning, or are we still succumbing to the siren’s call?
