Michael Johnson is one of the world's leading graphic designers and brand consultants. His studio, Johnson Bnaks, is responsible for the rebranding of many notable clients, including Virgin Atlantic, Think London, BFI, Christian Aid, and More Th>an. He has garnered a plethora of awards in the process. In 'Branding,' Johnson strips the most famous, everyday brands down to their basic components, enabling us to understand why we select one product or service over another and allowing us to comprehend how seemingly subtle influences can affect our key life decisions. The first part of the book shows how the birth of the brand begins not with finding a solution but rather with identifying key questions: what does the brand mean? What does it want to be?
