Cases and Explorations in Fashion Branding
Published: MAR 10, 2016
Brand/Story: Cases and Explorations in Fashion Branding, Second Edition examines how a retailer, manufacturer, or designer label uses storytelling to grab a consumer's interest. For consumers, branding tells the story and creates the identity for a product, a person, and a company. Using 10 case studies on such notable brands as Levis and Vivienne Westwood, Brand/Story looks at what a fashion brand is about and why companies advertise the way they do. It enables the reader to think critically about branding—both the medium and the message—and not simply take advertisements and brands at face value.

Innovation in Products, Services, Experiences and Beyond

Who can design? For too long, that question has highlighted the supposed division between right-brain dominant “creative types” and left-brain dominant “analytical types." Such a division is not practical for preparing students to become innovative contributors to the complex world of design. Strategic Design Thinking guides readers to cultivate hybrid thinking, whether their background is design, finance, or any discipline in between.
This book is an introduction to an integrative approach using the lens of design thinking as a way to see the world. The focus is on process instead of solution, and on connecting disparate ideas instead of getting bogged down by silos of specialization. Through this book, students will be introduced to design management, strategic design, service design, and experience design.
