Show Notes

In this episode,  we discussed why IP is not included in branding projects and covered:

  • The lack of job training for brand consultants and the culture of learning by doing that prevails
  • Checking company and product names 
  • Building distinctive brand assets,  versus the simplicity in design approach that prevails
  • What to consider when naming — what makes some names stronger than other names
  • Whether the legal dimension is a limiting factor that constrains the creative process
  • Positioning — does that impact your name choice?
  • IP’s role in managing competition
  • The negative reputation of lawyers
