In creating bold experiences for big brands it all comes down to creating a standout memory.

Episode Highlights

Be big. Be bold. What are most brand builders today missing? “Trying big, bold stuff.” That’s essential today and yet too many brand builders are stuck in the tools that have always been in their toolbox.

Building brands, impacting society. Inge noted that today, customers are turning to brands that are aligned with doing good in society. On a recent project for Shell, Inge’s team helped create a live experience with a digital component that helped address students’ decreasing interest in science and technology.

What brand has made Inge smile recently? Red Bull, “they’re such a great example of a big, bold brand and they create their own media.”
