Oh for seven

October 11 · Issue #3 · View online
Like birdwatching, but for brand enthusiasts. Links spotted and shared semi-regularly by Caroline O.

Hello again. A few themes emerging from this week’s batch of links. The first is the Silicon Valley brand. Starting with a tale you’ve heard before: an ego-driven, philosopher-disrupter brand, centred on the start-up’s male founder. Then a newer story: what happens when a start up outgrows its brand and needs to reposition itself?
The second theme looks at how art is changing in the selfie age (and whether it stops being art and starts being something else.. maybe even advertising). 

What Exactly Is Vegan-Mayonnaise Company Hampton Creek Selling?
Dropbox redesigns itself as a hipster file sharing service
Selfie Factories: The Rise of the Made-for-Instagram Museum
Artist virtually vandalises Jeff Koons’ Snapchat artwork to protest “AR corporate invasion”
FIELD x Photography — Ultraviolet Break of Day
