#Brandstorming

20131228-222154.jpg

What is your favourite brand? Maybe Gucci, Fendi, Miu Miu, Nike, Apple, Swatch, Audi or Wagamama?

Whether you are into designer products or high street: brands are in our daily life, right?

When I am shopping in the supermarket, labels and/or packaging on first glance: speak volumes. If I don’t like the design or logo, I won’t buy it. Unless it had been recommended to me, then maybe I might make an exception.

My friend recently asked me to help her with (possible) brand names for her start-up. After two hours of deliberating, I think we have something.

Exciting.

I suppose we are all brands: individually. However when we think Porsche or Giorgio Armani, what comes to mind? Style, chic, sophistication and expensive right?

Lastly, What does your brand smell, taste, sound, feel and look like?

What Apps Do You Use To Communicate?

Do you still pay for your (phone) calls and/or text messages?

There are so many (free) apps now available for download, that you should seriously look into, if you are not using Skype, Viper, FaceTime, Whatsapp, Line or iMessage already!

I tend to use Whatsapp the most. It’s free, works across Android, IPhone, BlackBerry, Nokia and Windows phones.
However, you can only send text messages, if you have the app.

Skype is amazing, with a good internet connection. You can video and audio call world-wide, free to all Skype-savvy users.

FaceTime is the same as Skype.

Viber offers free text and calls over WIFI or 3G connections.

Apple offers free iMessage (text only) between iPads and iPhones. Yep, I use it.

So I encourage you to think about these apps, before you pay for next phone call, or text!
Apparently, it is the minority that still pay?

Are you in?

Another sterling and stupendous ‘Yelp Elite Event’ held at Jetset Bohemian, in the hip spot of Grey Lynn.

A team of awe-inspired yelpers each donated a pair of second-hand sneakers or $10 for #GivingShoesDay #GivingTuesday to send some relief to the victims of the Philippines Typhoon #TyphoonHaiyan

Bird on a Wire was present with their offerings of ‘Korean BBQ Chicken Roll’ and the classic ‘Bird On A Wire Chicken Roll’. What can I say: Scrumptious!!!! Thanks Sophie!

Also Rochfort Rees wine, that I will admit I had not heard of, until now! Sampling the super premium Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris was a delight! The virtual winery whose philosophy “is to make wine that is simple in its complexity.”

Simple yet perfect.

Jetset Bohemian opened late for the yelpers’ pleasure: beautiful vintage pieces, scarfs, hats, you name it! I adored their newsprint-like carrybags, very cool.

What a night of yelping!

It’s hard to get a handle (intended pun) on when #tweetseats emerged as a thing on social media but it’s been talked about for all of 2013. This is where the naughty kids sit at the back of the class theatre and tweet, post, snap and upload to their little hearts’ content. And being at the back means brightly lit screens don’t annoy fellow theatre-goers.

Instant reviews, thoughts and photos are brought to life as it happens inside the theatre. The idea of #tweetseats being that people who can not attend can voyeuristically take part and – ideally – be enticed to attend the show in the rest of the season. But the best part is that anyone can follow the #tweetseats hashtag on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook and see what’s happening in theatre around the world any time of the night or day. And I think that’s a…
