Jewellery and what motivates a woman to buy. The jewellery shopper is definitely more discerning—she’s looking for new, fresh designs and not just brand names.

My commemoration of an end of an era:

Today is the last episode of the series #MadMen http://www.amctv.com/shows/mad-men

I am absolutely in love with the man and character Don Draper.

He is all of us. Our shadow side that says whatever the @#$* it wants to, has demons to slay, is afraid the past will define the future.  I love Mad Men because it represents in a very 
contemporary way the hero’s journey 

“You enter the forest
at the darkest point,
where there is no path.

Where there is a way or path,
it is someone else's path.

You are not on your own path.

If you follow someone else's way,
you are not going to realize
your potential.” 

Joseph Campbell  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Hero_with_a_Thousand_Faces

Every character is a different point on the journey. Our watching it can allow ourselves to see ourselves in ways that might lead to judgement. In that judgment is our learning point of how we can ensure we aren’t letting our own persona dragons sabbatage our positive trajectory. You know me well enough by now to know I’ll spin anything in the direction of self awareness and choice making. 

Just for fun here are some posts on contemporary branding and I hope yoiu can see the connection. I’ll be watching and drinking very good read wine.

I Love My City - A Concept for CSR
Every city has a X factor, which is a combination of many things. Brands could connect by taking forward the conversations around these elements. For example, In a rapidly changing India people are looking at older structures as inheritance that needs to be preserved. Could we revitalize things that have been lost along the way? Can we design socially responsible programs for new urbanism that gen x could relate to? Care about causes, start new m...
