Thematic Photographic 189 - Branded
Delray Beach, FL, December 2009
It would be an understatement to say we live in a consumer-driven society. We're surrounded by never-ending pressure to buy stuff, with advertisers and marketers finding ever new ways to get ever more aggressive messages in front of our eyes, around our ears and even inside our heads.
At the center of it all is the brand. Coke, Chevy or Apple...get comfortable with that brand and the rest of the process, as they say, is gravy (or, not, as is the case with the Hummer, and it'll, thankfully, disappear forever.) Brands are so central to our day-to-day lives that I'd like us to spend the next week exploring it as part of Thematic. Are you game?
Your turn: Please share a photo of a brand - logo, name, whatever you think qualifies - and post it to your blog. Similarly, if you've already shared something online, that's fair game, too. Leave a comment here letting everyone know where to find it, then skip around to other participants to spread the joy - and the word. Repeat, if you wish, because more is always merrier. Click here for more background on how Thematic works, and please accept my thanks for making this such a highlight for so many.
