Brand Archetypes: Driving Efficient Communications
This week on the show, hosts April and Hamish confront a foundational component of strategic positioning: brand archetypes. Together, they share advice for founders, marketers and brand managers to identify their brand archetypes to drive more inefficient communications. They also analyze two Aussie ad campaigns, from agencies The Works and DDB Melbourne. This week’s industry news features the closure of e-commerce startup Fast, the departure of Dunkin’s new CMO and Skittles brand’s recent apology conference stunt.
