Liquid Agency, an independent brand experience agency, has released The Dictionary of Brand: Google BrandLab Edition, a new must-have reference glossary for brand builders in the modern age. Written by Marty Neumeier and designed by Liquid for Google, the dictionary serves as a principal resource on key industry terminology as part of the BrandLab curriculum. The printed version of The Dictionary of Brand is available exclusively to Google BrandLab participants. A copy is now available for free online from Liquid as part of the agency’s commitment to helping companies build brand values. Download it from http://slidesha.re/1ksmA0r
The Dictionary of Brand is a relational glossary containing 500 interconnected terms in brand strategy, advertising, design, innovation, and management. Although many of the terms in the book are widely used by brand specialists, some haven’t yet appeared in other dictionaries and are emerging as key terms for the modern age of brand.
“The Dictionary of Brand is the first step in creating a linguistic foundation that allows specialists from different disciplines to work together in a larger community of practice,” said Marty Neumeier, Director of Transformation at Liquid Agency and author of the book. “Having a shared vocabulary among disciplines supports more successful collaboration, which is necessary for innovation. Greater acceptance and understanding of the relationship of brand terms also strengthens the credibility of the profession as a whole.”
Google BrandLab is an innovative collaborative center dedicated to helping select brands get the most out of the web through education, tools, and workshops.
“We at Google want to help [brands] get the most out of the web. We believe a shared language will inspire all of us to achieve great things together during this incredible age of brand building,” writes Lucas Watson, Vice President of Global Brand Solutions at Google, in the forward of the dictionary.
