THE BRAND GAP
How to bridge the distance between business strategy and design
by Marty Neumeier
Using the visual language of the boardroom, THE BRAND GAP presents the first unified theory of branding—a set of five disciplines that let companies bridge the gap between brand strategy and brand execution. If you already have a grasp of branding, you’ll find new inspiration here. If you don’t and wish you did, by the time you finish reading this book, you’ll suddenly “get it.”
THE BRAND GAP is the world’s most-read book on branding. A SlideShare version has been viewed over 20 million times. View the slide deck free or download the PDF.
