"Whatever is common is despised. Advertisements are now so numerous that they are very negligently perused, and it is therefore become necessary to gain attention by magnificence of promises, and by eloquence sometimes sublime and sometimes pathetic."

Apparently being bombarded by brand clutter is not something new. The above excerpt is part of the essay written by Samuel Johnson published on January 20, 1759, for his magazine The Idler. Moving closer to our times, in 1988, NY Times reported that a typical consumer is deluged by 5000 brand messages a day which amounts to 2 million a year.

COLOR — THE SOUL OF YOUR MESSAGE— HOW WILL YOU USE IT?

COLOR IS DEEP SEEDED IN OUR SUB-CONSCIOUS

{Just to give you a comparison between the captain (conscious) and the slave (sub-conscious), unconscious mind operates at 40 million bits of data per second, whereas the conscious mind processes at paltry 40 bits per second.}

Our forefathers, their forefathers, their forefathers... and all the way back to the early, pre-historic man, we find color/pigments being extracted from the natural environment to decorate, to fashion, to fabricate and offer to the gods. Color was the way of being.

Color is as old as man himself. No wonder, color triggers powerful psychological message.

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on May 2, 2014 6:13:00 PM

Marketing is all about making a meaningful differentiation. You simply have to look, feel and be different. Being different gets you noticed. And, “If you don’t get noticed, you don’t have anything."

 

You just have to get noticed. The challenge is how?

We live in a world of information overload. “Every two days we create as much information as we did from the dawn of civilization up until 2003,” according to former Google CEO, Eric Schmidt. Today, we are fortunate to have have way more than trillion web pages of information at our fingertips. The unfortunate part is, as humans our brains can consume only so much information at any given time. Given this digitalscape that we preside over, it is quite challenging for a brand to strike out as unique. But, if you are exhibiting at trade shows your chances of striking out as a unique brand player suddenly got a whole lot better.

SOME BRANDS ARE CATEGORIZED AS CLASSIC

“Some critics will say Coca-Cola made a marketing mistake. Some cynics will say that we planned the whole thing. The truth is we’re not that dumb and we’re not that smart." 
Don Keough
- At the 1985 press conference announcing the return of ‘classic’ Coke following consumer backlash to New Coke

Coke is one of global brands that drives value and derives strength by constantly re-making itself. Because, once you accept your limits you can aspire towards going beyond them — both creatively and consciously.

Hence, you achieve the status of 'classic' — you somehow manage to be masterly all the time.
