Metis Talent Management brand new website goes live

Last fortnight was a joy, as we came to the launch of Metis Talent Management's website. Metis is a Singapore based organisation that advises clients on Talent Management with a primary focus on Talent Development and Organisation Design. Best wishes to team Metis!

The other great thing is how folks at Metis approached this by going in for a full overhaul, including getting a new logo and brand colours. Do leave your comments on what you feel about the website and the logo!!

Hutch Brand Makeover to Vodafone still incomplete

In the last ten days or so, we have seen a spate of ads, on TV, Billboards etc announcing the rebranding of Indian Telecom operator Hutch to Vodafone. Newspapers have been talking about the huge sums that has been marked for this transformation.This NDTV report event mentions about a sum of 300 crore being earmarked for this brand makeover.The entire campaign, including creative is very tasteful and simple.The blitz appears so pervasive.

However, there is branding in nooks and crannies, which is still to be done.

Look at the network signature of a visitor who visited this space last night from a handheld device on Hutch network.The network is still identified as Hutch.

Don't blame the brand managers though, this is one space that they may not think much about(or know about). Don't blame the network guys either, they are not incharge of the brand. It just goes onto show that such mammoth brand makeovers have more dimensions than a brand manager can possibly think about.

@Ranjit: This was an example of a big bang change not creeping change as it happened in case of Lenovo.

Mark my words. One day the marketer would discover this space and then start buying and selling this space too, I mean don't they buy and sell any writable space which can be seen?!

I know it myself. Studied marketing 2 years!!

FROM THE 'SETS' OF THE MOVIE 'GANDHI'

I took this picture from a train as it ambled its way over the bridge on the river Son near Patna (Exact location Koilwar or Koelwar as you choose to spell it)
Discerning folks will recall the scene in the movie 'Gandhi' where a steam loco driven train halts on this bridge(from where this picture is taken) and passengers, including Gandhiji go down to the river. It is a very touching scene as Gandhiji notices a poor lady trying to cover her body with whatever little clothes she could afford and Gandhiji quietly letting go of a cloth that was on his shoulder so that the flow of the water leads the cloth to the lady. I have crossed this bridge so many times and it feels so serene and calm at this place.
Only that this is not the movie set, but the location of one of the historical experiences of …
