"Ideal for the college survey course: judicious introduction plus just the right admixture of explanatory notes (vital for American students' comprehension of dialect words), up-to-date bibliography, and several other brief, indispensable supports to well-informed reading."
--Katherine Linehan, Oberlin College
Unique among branding or creative guideline books, this book examines the enormous influence of both “commercial persuasion” and “societal persuasion” branding—and looks closely at the crucial role creative brand warriors play in building and sustaining winning designs. A primary focus is on exploring what it takes to be a successful creative in the global branding wars as defined by the 12 branding determinants. Global brands, such as Starbucks, Google, Burger King, Delta Airlines, and more, demonstrate the unique traits that make them successful brands.
