#FlashbackFriday | The Four Symbols Album | Symbolism in Branding: Zeppelin Style

Learn from the past. Zeppelin's mystery jacket with no mention of the bands name and no writing on the jacket. Ingenious or Bust?

#FlashbackFriday | 💚#Nipper | "His Masters Voice" 💚| #Brands That Stand the Test of Time

❤️"His Masters Voice" - Nipper ❤️The RCA Mascot Nipper the alert terrier with an ear cocked to listen to the phonograph was immortalized in a painting  by Francis Barraud that later became the RCA Victor trademark. The image of the adorable little puppy sitting with a cocked head next to a gramophone is etched into our collective minds.  Nipper (1884–1895) was a dog from Bristol, England, who served as the model for a painting by Francis Barraud titled "His Master's Voice". Nipper was a mixed-breed dog and probably part Jack Russell Terrier, or "part Bull Terrier". He was named Nipper because he would "nip" the backs of visitors' legs. Nipper’s  story stretches back to #Bristol where...

#FlashbackFriday | 1933’s 🦍 #KingKong 🦍 Travel to the Mysterious Skull Island  The #JurassicPark of it’s Time. We take you back to a time when the leading man was a giant 50 foot ape on the mysterious Skull Island. Few images are as iconic and well known as ��#KingKong 🦍. The 1933 film was ground breaking in its use of “old school” stop motion animation. The original 1933 #Kong 🦍 had depth of character that did not carry forward into some of the future remakes.

Henry Ford once said of the Model-T: "You can have what ever color you want as long as it’s Black" You can see #ElonMusk struggling with similar issues today at the #Tesla's assembly line. #Tesla has recently taken steps to reduces the available colors in the #Tesla line. Removing obsidian black metallic and silver metallic from its standard color choices, according to a tweet from Musk. He said the reduced choices would "simplify manufacturing." These challenges that #ElonMusk and the #Tesla team face are not new. In 1908, Henry #Ford introduced the "assembly line" for motor vehicle construction. The assembly line was built on...
