Doctor Who: The making of a global brand [Stats]

Over the last two years, BBC Worldwide has been turning Doctor Who from (simply) a gigantic British show into a truly global icon.

Julia Kenyon, Acting Chief Brands Officer, BBC Worldwide, spoke at the Festival of Marketing about how this was achieved and included some staggering stats about the brand’s performance at ComicCon 2015, its 2014 world tour and the 2013 50th anniversary.

Knowing what you're not: defining your design principles

Successful products and services are those with a definite point of view, those that avoid an identity crisis by knowing exactly what they're not.

Government Digital Service (GDS) has garnered much praise for its transparent and reasoned approach to design.

And whilst smaller organisations may not need ten principles (like GDS), those with a distinctive approach to digital experiences are gaining competitive advantage.

Here's a revealing case study, from a tech startup founded in 2011, that I think provides food for thought for any business creating new online services.


Six ways brands can ensure startup pilot success

The relationship between brands and startups has never been cozier.

The internet has fundamentally changed the way brands connect with and market to consumers, and many brands increasingly look to young startups to help them understand what innovations are coming next.


Four influential brands and why they're so effective

Getting your brand right is one of the most difficult but potentially valuable parts of running a business. 

In this post I’m going to take a look at some of the most powerful brands in the UK to see what makes them so effective and memorable.

10 Tumblr accounts to inspire your own social media strategy

Since Yahoo bought Tumblr in 2013 there's been an amount of controversy, or at least change.

Declining web traffic (perhaps explained by increased app usage), advertising, the advent or popularisation of other social networks and websites (Snapchat, BuzzFeed etc.).

Despite all this, I still find Tumblr to be a really interesting platform for its simplicity of design. Brand and publisher websites often follow in the footsteps of social network design, think Pinterest as well as Tumblr.

Aside from design, the idea of earned content, blogs on separate domains, microsites, all these things have allowed brands to subtly develop or experiment with a friendlier perhaps even quirky tone. To that end, I've rounded up some inspiring Tumblrs that I feel can inform brands of various tactics for success on social media.

See what you think.


Five key trends and takeouts from Google I/O 2014

This year’s Google I/O conference, held weeks after Apple’s WWDC, showed the world that Google really is taking over every aspect of our lives, and challenging its fiercest rivals.

As Android users have increased from 530m last year to more than 1bn this year, Google announced its ‘biggest ever overhaul’ with a completely new set of Android products. 

Read on for my top five developments (plus a dose of healthy rivalry)...


How brands are using anonymous apps

Anonymous apps are the latest craze. But what are they, and why are so many of them popping up?

First, of course, nothing online is guaranteed to be truly anonymous. Clever audience tracking, or just knowing which friend of a friend has the job they’ve talked about hating, means you can often trace content back to the original creator. 

But the popularity of apps like Whisper and Secret is precisely because of their surface anonymity (Whisper is reported to have 3.5 bn views a month).  

Whisper lets you post short, anonymous, messages, which anyone else using the service can see and reply to, while Secret lets you post anonymous messages to anyone on your mobile’s contact list.
