What is this podcast?

Your brand + an emotional connection with your audience = success. But that middle part is tricky. I'm here to equip you to achieve it, through personal stories of individuals who have emotionally resonated with branding. I'm Sam, a brand designer and your host. In each episode, released on the 14th of the month, a top guest picks their favourite brand. I then invite them to unpack why it means so much. As they share, we gain invaluable insights into what makes audiences tick. Not with strategy or theory, but through that undeniable proof of successful branding: emotion. Whether you're a business wanting to better connect, a charity struggling to garner support or a branding professional needing encouragement, this is the podcast for you.
