As we started this recent series, we made this definition:

Branding can be defined as a collection of values, ideas, personality, and history. Branding at its peak is when people associate YOUR NAME with the product itself. When you have a cold, how many people say, “pass me a kleenex please.” Kleenex is a BRAND of tissue, but its name has become synonymous with the product that solves a problem.
