some years ago, connex

For those of you who remember, this was spotted a few months ago in town. I wonder if they removed it since then. It brought back some nice memories of the ‘Future Sounds Bright’ era. And no, I’m not gay, I happened to like it a lot 😀


Unii dintre noi incepem sa avem lovemarks;

Ce sunt lovemarks?
The next step beyond branding.

Brandurile pe care le iubesti, pentru care n-ai renunta la nimic in lume, care a fost alaturi de tine si a fost atat de bine gandit si promovat incat acum nu poti sa te dezlipesti. Termenul a fost “inventat” de Saatchi Worldwide, dar se vede si in dreapta jos 🙂

Voi ce lovemarks aveti? Sau primele 5 branduri care va fac viata mai frumoasa, mai buna, branduri ale caror reclame va fac sa zambiti, brandurile produselor in care va simtiti confortabil si in care nu trebuie sa va tineti respiratia ca sa incapeti in ele… 🙂

Ale mele? Diesel, Apple, Mont Blanc, brolly :)))

Q : How do you first de-brand before branding or re-branding, because unfortunately we only have really acquired so to speak from Ceausescu, from the former communism, from adopted kids, many things that are a real handicap […] ?
A: 1. Convince your own people that whatever it is, it is true, because the universe of people beyond your borders […] will resonate with what the people here say
2. Expand your tourism base, but you got to have some tourism already.
