“Simple brands are the best brands,” Nick said. “Simple brands have simple stories just like the best novels and the best movies have simple loglines.”
But the foundation is key. And what’s at the foundation? “A good brand.” But sometimes building and rebuilding brands—even a simple brand—can be a complex process as Studio Hansa found when they were approached by Ukraine’s public TV broadcaster.
Rebranding by … de-branding? Yes, you read that correctly. “To rebrand the state TV in Ukraine we had to do a lot of de-branding to build trust.”
What brand has made Nick smile recently? “Nike—I like so much of what they’ve done,” Nick noted. However, his recent smile was prompted by a moving image of LeBron James when he broke the NBA’s scoring record.
