In 'Branding', Johnson strips the most famous, everyday brands down to their basic components, enabling us to understand why we select one product or service over another and allowing us to comprehend how seemingly subtle influences can affect our key life decisions.
The first part of the book shows how the birth of a brand begins not with finding a solution but rather with identifying key questions: what does the brand mean? What does it want to be? The second half focuses on the design and implementation of the brand. Step 2.5, Johnson reveals, is the most important stage of all. It bridges the all-too-neglected gap between research and design, and guides you through the vital moments where the creation of brands can go wrong.
With more than 1,000 vibrant illustrations showcasing the world’s most successful corporate identities, Branding is an authoritative guide to creating the simplest and most compelling brands.
