Tearing Marketing Covers: What’s Hiding Beneath Logos of Popular Brands

In 2012, the world has seen another dystopian movie called Branded. If you saw it, then you know what it tells. If not, attention spoilers ahead.

Trying to describe the plot in a few lines (and not to offend anyone), I almost had a headbang. The idea of Branded is actually quite straightforward: people live in a society that is ruled by corporations and their comprehensive marketing machines. According to this movie, brands control human souls, but leave them the illusion of free will and happiness while making them wear, eat, and want things that corporations want them to have.

Does it remind you of anything? Even though the scenario of this movie is expected to be fictional, sci-fi, illusional, fictive, made-up or whatever you call it, the message is quite clear. We are already living in this dystopian society ruled by consumerism, greed and lust for things we don’t need.

Even though the grass is always greener on the other side, one must not lose individuality trying to satisfy demands created by marketing heavyweights.

The Ugly Truth of Popular Brand Logos

Talking about brands is a conversation for a dozen of articles. In this one we’d like to talk about or I’d better say mock at brands. If you ask any four-year-old child which logo belongs to which brand and they will define them just like that.

The designer Viktor Hertz and his colleague Cliff Dickens decided to reveal the true story, showing people the true face of brands without marketing masks.

Let's see what Viktor thinks about those corporations.
