But it requires new thinking and execution, from both marketers and general management.

The future of Brands
15 years ago there was no Google, no GM foods, no Nokia, no I-Pod, no e-Bay, no internet, no pilates, no smoothies, no lattes. Most consumers weren't sure what a brand was and certainly no one thought that David Beckham was one. So what will the next fifteen years hold? Will brands themselves survive? If so, what will they look like? Which big names will still be around? And which unborn brands will take them on? With 21 trend spotters around the world looking at the future, FutureBrand is well placed to offer a glimpse into the year 2020 and what it will bring for the future of brands.

Business today is in a constant state of evolution and responsiveness to circumstance and opportunity. Their brands must be the same. The Living Brand is aligned with the business plan, not just the marketing plan. It is responsive, relevant and related. It is no longer just a statement of ownership and its corner stone is no longer the trademark. The Living Brand's recognition lies in its spirit, attitude, way of being and the broader visual language that expresses it. It has the ability to dominate the entire territory in which it operates, not just the space in which it writes its name. The Living Brand is an ongoing journey, not a destination. It requires new understandings and utilization of resources and environment. Old methods are no longer enough. The new world requires new methods and brands that live.

Plastic Surgery for Brands Good plastic surgery for brands is about understanding cultural reference points and that's the key to making a brand work in another country. If a brand is looking to market their brand to Europe/ USA, they may need a certain level of surgery to get them to appeal to these markets while retaining their Russian qualities. Last words something like.... if you want to your brand to look good under the global catwalk spotlight, you might want to think about making an appointment with a good surgeon".
