Charl Laubscher +

Love + Money

Love + Money teach Brand as a Meme

These days everyone talks about how important having a brand is. But for all this talk about “the why", who can actually tell you the “what”? As in: what, functionally, is a brand? How does it work? Who needs to understand it? Where does it turn up? When is it time to update or change it?

Drawing on a mix of mid-70s science and contemporary internet culture, Love + Money’s Charl Laubscher and Adnaan Narot explore what a brand is, how it adapts, replicates survives and ultimately thrives in the world wide web of ideas and ecommerce.
