Shane Keaney and Andrew Nicholas at CityPoolDesign.com created this great infographic called BrandAddies that analyzes and compares the top 13 brand advertising firms. There’s a high-resolution PDF available from the CityPoolDesign.com site, from The Think Tank page.
For ourselves and others we’ve made a little compendium as an entry point into the world of branding via some basic info about of the best know firms. We chose the following 13 firms: Arnell group, The Brand Union, Chermayeff & Geismar, Futurebrand, Interbrand, Landor, Lippincott, Minale Tattersfield, Sterling Brands, Saffron Consultants, Siegel+Gale, vsa Partners, Wolff Olins, and compared the basic facts of:
1. When they were started and by whom.
2. How many people they employ.
3. How many locations they have.
For each firm we also included a great sample identity, and a sample identity that we feel is not so great.
Thanks for the link Shane!
