Brand Strategy

To many people, if you mention the word ‘brand’, they are likely to think of popular logos such as Coca Cola and Nike. However, a brand is far more than a logo. A brand determines the complete look and feel of a company and alters your emotions on hearing that brand’s name or seeing something related to that company.  True brand strategy is based on extensive marketing knowledge and design integration to create a complete overall picture of a company.

Automotive Fun Facts

Windshield Wipers Were Invented by a Woman. Next time you’re driving in a rainstorm, you can thank Mary Anderson, who invented windshield wipers in 1903. Anderson received a patent for the windshield wiper, but she couldn’t sell the invention to the auto companies, who claimed that the device did not have commercial value. After Anderson’s patent ran out in 1920, windshield wipers eventually became a standard feature on automobiles. Today, changing windshield wipers is an important part of automotive maintenance.
