Creating Belief // The Power of Distinction

Humans are emotional beings. Overwhelmingly, our behaviour is driven by feeling over fact, heart over mind, impulse over reason. So, to truly connect with consumers in ways that matter, and last, brands must embed emotion into every experience – creating associations and infusing interactions with real and authentic memories.

JDO will present their ethos on the power of creativity in changing what your audience thinks and feels. Building brands is about building belief – in a purpose, a product, an experience, an idea – and as thinkers, designers and makers, how to apply tools to construct whatever that belief might be. From greener engine oil to biodegradable skincare, future-fit foods or soap that changes lives,. It is no longer about just designing products, packaging or brands – it is how to create belief.
