These impacts will be felt on both sides of the equation, as the ecosystem necessary to support brand experience will spread into retail, consumer products, shipping and architecture as well as in the sphere of digital design and development.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) January 10, 2014
In an article penned for international technology tastemaker, The Next Web, Julius Talvik, Chief Innovation Officer of Unison Agency, describes what he sees as a new era of business strategy in which the once-separate notions of user experience and brand positioning are becoming unified in a new philosophy he defines as “the brand experience.”
“The preeminence of user experience seems to have come full circle. There has been a shift back toward the physical world in which all aspects of a business—its products, architecture, printed materials, software, mobile applications and everything in between—have to be considered as a unified whole in order for companies to succeed,” writes Talvik, who is also co-founder of Unison, the leading brand and digital agency in Washington, DC.
Pointing to Apple, Amazon and Google as companies that have successfully bridged the chasm between user experience and branding, Talvik asserts that the brand experience will have to infuse and inform every aspect of a company’s products and services. For businesses, this shift will have profound consequences, he says.
“[I]t means that to stay ahead of the technology/content curve, companies will have to align all brand touchpoints—the physical and the digital manifestations of their brands—around their core principles,” Talvik added before predicting that the impact will be far-reaching.
“The evolution … will have many beneficial and largely predictable effects on global industry, as well,” Talvik writes. “These impacts will be felt on both sides of the equation, as the ecosystem necessary to support it all will spread into retail, consumer products, shipping and architecture as well as in the sphere of digital design and development.”
