A Baker's Dozen of What I Believe

Products have stories.

Companies build products.

Companies create experiences.

Consumers live stories.

Consumers experience products.

Consumers define your brand.


To deliver the whole product experience that defines the brand you want to be:

Be an empathetic listener  

Design a simple and elegant response.

Make and keep all your commitments.

Stand for something, not everything.

Build an ‘ah-ha’ moment into the system.


Customers require value.

How you deliver value is your brand promise.
