Using Brands to Create Cultural Identity

The most successful brands create a shared culture or lifestyle where fans of the brand embrace it as part of their own identity. The brand reflects the passions of the consumer and communicates to them in a voice they trust. Only a handful of brands achieve this iconic status – but how do you do it? In this session Chris Wink, cofounder and original cast member of the Blue Man Group, and Jarret Myer, General Manager of digital media company Woven and cofounder of UPROXX, Rawkus Records, and Big Frame will discuss the lessons they’ve learned from creating brands that consumers love. They will explore how brands create relevance and build loyal audiences, and what companies are building the next generation of beloved brands.
