My Brand Name Day

After reading Dear Jane Samples blog post here: http://dearjanesample.wordpress.com/2008/05/19/fun-with-brands/trackback/ I decided to create my own day as a visual representation of brand names. I’m so shocked at how many things I use.. I say ‘things’ because basically everything you use has a name associated with it. What I also found surprising is how many things I neglected to write down – things such as toilet paper, a brand you really don’t consider – unless that is, you run out!

    What a great brand timeline! I left toilet paper out my timeline too. :]

    Thank you.. I just realised I left out IE and Firefox too… I just keep thinking ‘if I lived in a 3rd world country what a different picture this would be!’

  3. What a great idea!

    Think I might have to give it a go myself.

    I like that you added the Huggies. Imagine how many brands kids use by the age of 3.

  5. foxsden said

    Hmm good point kid brand timeline would be an interesting one to do actually Mike..

    Ha, we both know that the Huggies aren’t for the kid :)

    I’ve just had a go at this on paper. It’s going to take sometime to write up… which is rather worrying.

    :-) that’s what I kept thinking.. whats even more worrying is after you read this big long list of brand names you suddenly start thinking about ones you missed – like petrol and toilet paper… they’re the ones that get hidden in your day to day but are very prominent brands.. I’ve thought of about 4 more I’ve missed on mine.

    I’m working my way down the meme list and so far people have covered a ton of items. But no blogs.

    I cheated and when with what runs downhill. Mostly. :-)

    Hi Cat, thanks for dropping in but I’m sorry if I’m being dense (I’m not the quickest sometimes) but you’ve completely lost me!

    Apologies … I visited all the blogs joining in on the timeline / logo / branding meme … David Airey started a list on his blog, Logo Design Love. I have the same on mine (which will explain how I cheated :-)

    Love the brand time line. Must have taken you ages??

  16. foxsden said

    You know, what took me the longest was lining those little bugger logos up on the page – and some of them still aren’t cooperating! Thanks for looking
