There's a buzz about branding these days, as business strategists, designers, developers, marketers and CEOs seek to rebuild the web--and indeed whole companies--by paying attention to user experience. The Brand Gap is a concise primer for anyone who wants to leverage the power of branding. It shows the reader how to make the leap from a logical business strategy to powerful, creative execution. After explaining what a brand is (and what it isn't), and the foundations of a brand, the author takes the reader through five critical disciplines: Differentiation, Collaboration, Innovation, Validation, and Cultivation. Finally, a summary of key take-home lessons is included to stimulate conversations about building an enduring brand. There's a burning desire for information about how the 'rubber meets the road' in building brands. This is the need that The Brand Gap fills.
