5.0 out of 5 stars A useful and accessible book 11 Jun 2010
By Vic R
I undertook an internship at a branding agency and was given this book to read to introduce me to the subject, as I had no previous knowledge of it. I found the "back to basics" approach really useful as it was able to put branding into a context I already understood. The extensive use of case studies was also helpful as I could relate what I was learning in the book to what I already knew just from being an everyday consumer.

The book goes on to discuss branding techniques, the relationship between the client and the agency and the futures of brands. Whilst being on the whole objective, the book is still able to teach the reader how to effectively assess a brand's success and is an intelligent yet extremely readable introduction to the world of branding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fundamentally Brilliant! 1 July 2010
By C Sklar
I love this book!
I've always been interested in the psychology of brands and this book has fast become my branding bible. It is organised simply and lucidly as well as being aesthetically pleasing; a difficult balance to achieve!
The case studies were especially helpful and I would recommend this book to anyone just starting out in branding, or indeed, anyone who has been in branding for a while but wants a little refresher course in the basics!

I've been a fan of Melissa Davis on a professional level for awhile, and so it was no surprise to me that she has since written this wonderful introduction to branding.

She breaks down branding into its most basic components and then builds this to encompass all the latest branding techniques an innovations. Using real-world and up-to-date examples from agencies like ours (Lambie-Nairn) as well as others we greatly admire in the industry, ensures the concepts are illustrated and brought to life in a way that makes them understandable and digestible for true branding beginners - whilst making interesting reading in their own right.

I'd recommend this book to students, new joiners of an agency involved in branding, and all junior staff who are just beginning their careers in branding - as it covers all the 'fundamentals' perfectly, enabling them to hit the ground running.

Simply great, I wish I had this book when I first landed in the branding world!
