More About the Author

WALLY OLINS, CBE (1930-2014)

Wally Olins was 'the world's leading practitioner of branding and identity', according to The Financial Times. Formerly Chairman of Wolff Olins and Chairman of Saffron Brand Consultants, he advised many of the world's leading companies, including 3i, Renault, Repsol, BT, Volkswagen, Tata and Lloyd's of London and also worked with many countries, regions and cities, among them Portugal and Poland. He acted as an advisor to both McKinsey and Bain.

He was born in London and educated at Oxford, where he read history. Early in his career he became head of what is now the Ogilvy advertising agency in India where he lived for 5 years and he retained an enduring interest in South Asia.

Over 250,000 copies of his books have been sold in 18 languages, including the seminal works, Corporate Identity, Wally Olins On B®and, The Brand Handbook and Brand New. His approach is sociological and anthropological as well as commercial.

He held Fellowships and Professorships at a number of leading Business Schools and Universities around the world, including Said Business School at Oxford University.

The multi-award-winning Wally Olins was made CBE in 1999 and received the Lifetime Award from the Reputation Institute. He was awarded the Bicentenary Medal of the RSA in 2000 and the D&AD President's Award in 2003. He was also nominated for the Prince Philip Designer's Prize and for the 2012 British Inspiration Awards. He was made an Honorary Fellow of St. Peter's College, Oxford, and has been awarded a number of honorary professorships around the world.

Format: Hardcover
Firstly this is not a big book. It is compact an rather 'espresso' on approach. But like a good espresso it is full of flavour and taste.

Beautifully illustrated and full of well-known examples, Wall Olins takes you through the key aspects of branding; each with plenty of examples.

In the 110 pages Wally talks about:

* What branding is about
* Making brands work
* Belief in branding

Each of the above is divided into a number of sub-sections which walk you through the issues and decisions associated with branding.

For me this book was an excellent reminder of why organisations work so hard to build and defend their brands. Not only does Wally tell us what's important, he also poses numerous questions for us to answer, each of which help us make decisions about brands.

If you are about to embark on a branding exercise or need to study branding or (like me) are just interested in brands then I would recommend this book as a great journey and insight into the brands we see each day.

Easy to read, inexpensive and just spot on. I read this book very quickly and have to say that it's no nonsense approach in demystifying what a brand is well worth a read. It now lives on my desk as an essential part of my library.

Great Book with a lots of insides about Brand, or Brands and how they develop until these days.
Perfect for people who work with brands - such as designers and marketeers. And maybe even to someone who is creating they're own brand. It doesn't matter how small or big the brand it is, the principles applied to brands are the same, or can be the same.

This is a great book, I bought this as I was writing an article and wanted another perspective on the matter, its a refreshingly honest view on the world of brand!

A must buy for any designer!
