Music Jingle’s cool logo

Music Jingle's cool logo

Music Jingle is a music composing company that also conducts music shows.

I love the description of the logo at the bottom. It is surely some great amount of though and design into it. Today, new companies are spending a huge amount of time just finalizing their brand logos. This one is not only meaningful but also has a high recall value too.

Could you find all the symbols in the logo? I surely cannot seem to find anything about the company online yet. (They definitely need a website up for people who are intrigued by the cool logo) :)

British Airways v/s Coke : Which story touches you? (Part II)

Coke’s Where will happiness strike next is very close to that of British Airways’. (See Part I)

It is interesting to see how some ads are so close to each other that you cannot even tell who’s original idea it was.

Ads are surely getting longer. But the question is, does it keep your attention? Which story touches you more? (Read Part I for my vote).

British Airways v/s Coke : Which story touches you? (Part I)

Today, brands no longer want to hard sell. Surely, there is a paradigm shift in the way brands speak to all of us.
Advertising is now moving to telling a story (and then selling it). Emotions are a time tested magic recipe in any ad campaign. When I watched this, I did shed a tear.
Although the ads by British Airways and Coke are extremely similar, I do believe that the ad is closer to British Airlines’ core product i.e. airplane services against just the overall branding theme of Coke i.e. of sharing happiness.
Therefore, I’d give a +1 to British Airways. (P.s: They manage their YouTube Channel better too).

Brand honesty in Singapore – Rare but true!

Brand honesty in Singapore - Rare but true!

In early June, Scoot launched a “virtual flight” for customers with smart phones. The winner of the world’s longest virtual flight was guaranteed a grand prize of $20,000 and a year of free flights. 7000 contestants logged into the game where they had to tap a button every sixty seconds. The last person on the flight would be declared the winner.

This whole contest was a perfect recipe for great brand engagement in a tech-loving Singapore! However, that technology was exactly what failed the entire contest. Participants were continuously dropped out of the flight due to “technical glitches”. Eventually only 2000 out of the 7000 people were able to participate.

This stunt immediately backfired on Scoot where the facebook page witnessed an uproar of negative comments many extending to services provided on the real aircraft itself. Eventually, neither the server nor Campbell Wilson(CEO) could take the load.

However, recently, Campbell did something that most PR and communications agencies have not been doing i.e. being honest.

Scoot admitted it made a mistake, hosted live chats with the community and relaunched the game again.

The online community truly appreciated the brand’s honesty and showed it’s true appreciation and support.

Moral of the story: You cannot engage with your community without sharing a mutual relation of honesty and respect. Brands can no longer hide the truth. So the best thing to do is to embrace it because people will love you for it! Cheers to Scoot!
