Did you read the headline statement? How zen is that?
And by using the word ‘Zen’ an impression is formed in your head. You know it has some association with wisdom, tranquility, an ordered life, but you cannot accurately point to the source of these impressions. Nevertheless, it impacts your viewpoint.
Welcome to the world of branding.
A brand is a form of language. It can evoke meaning. It can evoke an emotion. It can evoke a personality. It's the visual representation of your company's values, beliefs, culture, personality, style, mantra and no company, product or organization can operate effectively without one.
You interact with numerous brands each and every day. It's inescapable. Even the anti-brand movement is branded…as an anti-brand movement. It may be a word, a phrase, a graphic, a service, a perspective. It can be anything. But it is in what it does, how it operates, that not only sets it apart, but makes it crucially important.

Ocean One International Yacht Race
For its inaugural year, Ocean One needed its new brand to make a splash. We combined the latitude and longitude lines to suggest the race's international flavour in a sail motif. Very cool. Very modern. Very nautical.
