It strikes one as being “real” – in the sense that they’re replacing some claim of excellence and the promise of something new with the actual thing itself. Great brands are makers of special things and experiences. Great marketing is the same.

At GPJ we’ve been proud to embrace this hands-on approach through activities like our CMO event series and the world’s first experience design competition, the Brand X Challenge, aimed at fostering the next generation of talented brand thinkers while bringing attention to this important discipline.
