Brands You Encounter




Her list seems a bit short, only the brands she uses in a day, I actually wonder if it would at all be possible to capture the brands that are vying for your attention throughout the day. Probably not. Hell, I have more brands staring me in the face sitting in my office, Apple, Nalgene, Boston, Lacie, Avaya, Sony, Charles Anderson, Pantone, House, NFL, Skull Candy, Oakley, Scotch, Skin It, Fiscars, Papermate, Post It, 3M, Renu, Buzz, ADCD, NDAC, Ready Mech, Philips, Bisley, One Club, Levis, Send Station, Veer, Wiley, TBWA, Wacom, Quaker, Royal Carribean, Duffy, Playstation, Filmlot, Holmes, Mido, Canon, Iomega, Pepto Bismalt, Verbatum, Motorola, Disney, Discovery Channel, Bristol, Sharpee, French Paper, Futurama, Nerf, Sanford, Firefox, Google, Blogger.com .....

Ok, that was a bit exhausting, only what I could see from my cube, only something with a logo on it qualified. Point well made. Original idea and time line from Dear Jane Sample, click there for more.

I actually missed A LOT of brands I use through out the day. The key one I missed is toilet paper and I know I use many more office related brands at work.

It would be fun to do a book "my year in brands" in which a person documented all the brands they used. You wouldn't need to translate it either as brands seem to be a new international language.

I'd agree, you could do a entire brand book where you have others capture their own brands, use it as a story line. I'd buy it.

I really like this trend. Here are my 12 logos in first 12 minutes of my day. 12 Logos in 12 Minutes (A New Blogging Trend)

I didn't have the time to list all the brands throughout the day. And as it was my Friday night, I stuck mostly with what I could drink.

It was a lot of fun and I'd certainly do it again at some point.
