Personality Crisis! How Semiotics Can Heal Your Brand. Joshua Glenn For a successful brand, it is crucially important to evince a unique, coherent, and winning “personality”—a metaphor borrowed by brand strategists from the field of psychology.

Personality Crisis! How Semiotics Can Heal Your Brand.

Let’s play psychologist for a moment, then, and ask: What if your brand’s key assets or equities aren’t deeply and tightly integrated? Then your brand has a personality crisis… which is confusing and alienating to consumers. Luckily, semiotics offers a remedy. Since I got started in this business, in the late 1990s, it’s been my experience that the semiotician’s role is primarily that of a troubleshooter—an expert summoned into a crisis situation in order to play the role of healer and transformer.

How the web distorts reality and impairs our judgement skills

Internet penetration, the open-source economy and the proliferation of search algorithms have generated an unprecedented amount of information – IBM estimates that 90% of the world's online data has been created just in the past two years. What's more, it has made information more accessible than ever before. However, rather than enhancing knowledge, the internet has produced an information glut or "infoxication". Indeed, online stories are to intellectual curiosity what fast food is to hunger. Most of the stories we consume online are as valuable as daytime television.

O mejor: me intranquiliza la falta de discontinuidades. Revista MATRIZes. Occupy Semiotics. Paul Bouissac The production of knowledge should not be confused with the production of discourse. Contemporary semiotics unfortunately tends to be a set of text-producing algorithms which run on their own steam like mad machines with little concern for empirical constraints. Semiotics, though, originated in nineteenth century speculations on signs with the explicit goal of founding a new science.

It is all too easy to forget that these speculations were meant to answer some fundamental questions raised in the context of the Enlightenment.

So as my colleagues listened to Barack Obama and Mitt Romney‘s town hall debate Tuesday night, I pushed the mute button once again and prepared to determine a champion based on pantomime alone.
