Personal Identity Through Consumer Products

Streaming Video - 2006
Rate this:
This program updates the philosophy of branding, a practice that has evolved to define personal identity through a product line, a lifestyle, or simply a concept. Cultural anthropologist Ted Polhemus explains the theory of branding and its evolution in the global marketplace. Nicolas Hayek, CEO of Swatch, uses his company's success story to discuss the emotional nature of buying-and buying into-a brand. The indie skateboard entrepreneurs of Girl & Chocolate describe their brand as representative of a lifestyle. And the advertising duo who created "do," a brand with a lot of attitude but no products, look at brands as a form of personal statement that replaces worn-out cultural identity tags such as political affiliation.
