We're pretty used to fashion brands retouching photos to contort models’ bodies. But while slimming down legs, removing ribs and even doling out lopsided boob jobs are certainly jarring, we couldn't help but feel completely stunned upon seeing J.Crew's recent Photoshop fail — it completely obliterated a model's thighs. Is nothing sacred?...

Google Brings its Retail Catalog App to the Web
October 2, 2012 From CNet
Just in time for holiday shopping to start, Google has made its stable of retail catalogs available for browsing on the web. It was just over a year ago that the company introduced Google Catalogs for iPad, giving users a way to shop at popular retailers directly from their tablet. An Android app followed. The company is now bringing that experience to the web, offering more than 300 catalogs including Williams-Sonoma, J.Crew and Eddie Bauer. Users can browse alphabetically or by category. Inside a catalog, clicking "view details" on items will take you to the retailer's site to make a purchase.

<br>BrandAbout is an experiential, do-it-yourself, creative playbook for energizing brands and their product lines and/or services. With 10 practical lessons based on more than 25 years of hands-on, in-the-trenches merchandising and marketing experience, BrandAbout provides companies of all sizes—from startups to Fortune 500s—with more than 40 creative homework exercises that can be customized to their unique needs and applied over and over again. 

BrandAbout is an adventurous practicum for companies. The main prerequisite is an open mind, an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for delighting customers! BrandAbout’s inspirational and personal approach is based on Syverson’s real world multi-channel expertise in the marketplace as she encourages companies to collaborate both interdepartmentally, intradepartmentally and directly with their customers.

Like a stylized syllabus, BrandAbout is organized into 10 individual building blocks that can be worked through all at once in a self-directed two or three day offsite or integrated individually into weekly or monthly meetings. 

Part Purple Cow, part Whack on the Side of the Head and part inspirational branding guidebook, BrandAbout is actionable, practical and empowering and a must read for creative dreamers and doers looking for a fresh approach to their brand and product challenges.

Think of BrandAbout as creative brain food for busy marketers and merchants!

<i>"Beginning with the introduction, and continuing in every chapter, it is clear Andrea Syverson’s BrandAbout is not a conventional business book. She brings a soulful quality to something that is often justly criticized for having none. Brands often die because they are thought to be static. Successful brands and brand managers understand that businesses, and the brands that define them, need to evolve. If you think you don’t have a brand, think again. In today’s crowded marketplace having a well-defined, evolving brand may be your key to survival and success. This book will help you to better understand the importance of your brand and the critical relationship between brands and merchandising. Reading Andrea’s book will inspire you to look at your brand with fresh eyes and will help distinguish your brand in the marketplace. A must read."</i>
