For anyone who has ever been to a fashion show, I am sure they are all too familiar with the disappointment of returning home to review the photos of the day, only to find your IPhone full of blurry snapshots that vaguely resemble a person. To combat this, the team at Made (formerly MAC & Milk) have designed a new revolutionary app. The Made Fashion app uses technology developed with Sonicnotify to streamline the way designers, editors, buyers and consumers experience fashion shows and presentations.
Vic’s Meat, a standout example of best branding practice has done it again.
We’ve written before about the unique, rich and memorable brand experience that is Victor Churchill, a European-inspired designer shop of carnivorous inspiration in Sydney. Now the owners have developed a website and released an iPhone app, Ask the butcher.
The Ask the Butcher App was created by the super talented guys at Blind Mice Studios.
The brands we choose reflect how we see ourselves
Each day we make thousands of conscious and sub-concussion decisions about the brands we wish to include in our lives. Our choice of which brands we choose to connect-with is often a reflection of how we see ourselves and how we wish the world to see us. Some of these brand associates are more overt than others, but when mapped as a whole they create a sense of personal brand identity. ‘Brand Mapping’ as we call it forms part of the Insights process we use on our commercial projects. Brand mapping helps us to immerse our thinking into the lives of target markets our clients’ brands wish to connect with truly and deeply.

Global Marketing Push hits the Streets
Just hours after the launch of the new Microsoft Windows Phone, teams of orange-clad Windows Phone Warriors have hit the streets of Paris talking New Phone Technology to anyone who’ll listen. The Windows software debuts today on 30 different phone models made by Samsung, HTC and LG. The phone’s operating system includes Microsoft Office, Outlook, and applications sold through an Apple iPhone-like ap marketplace.
The Revolution has been Postponed
Three years ago this system would have been the kind of revolutionary masterstroke Microsoft are looking for to regain their flagging market share. But following the success of the iPhone, this looks like another reminder of the fate of brands who spend too much of their energy focussed on the competition and not enough on revolutionizing the marketplace. The feedback on the web has been generally critical of the new OS for being too little too late. A review on Gizmodo blog opined: “Windows Mobile 6.5 isn’t just a letdown – it barely seems done … It’s an interim product and a vain attempt to hold onto the thinning ranks of people who still choose Windows Mobile despite not being somehow tethered to it until the tardy Windows Mobile 7 comes out, whenever that may be. And it won’t work.” Unfortunately for Microsoft, the Windows Phone looks less like the answer to the iPhone, and more like a me-too product.
