OpinionDebranding Is the New Branding

From Burger King and Toyota to Intel and Warner Brothers, major brands are discarding detail and depth. Why now, and what’s the rush? And most of all: do we need a new something-brand word to name it.

I quit!

Yup, that’s right: I’m getting away. I flee! Don’t you worry, my job is still my passion and design is my calling. I’m talking about detoxing from too many newsletter subscriptions. Inbox flood is a pain and I’ve been stressed for too long looking regularly at this “new message” counter. I can’t (yet) get rid of the endless flow of calendar invitations, platform notifications, people asking for a job or a contract, etc.

The first step is to clean my current subscriptions! Goodbye online shops “best ever product news update”, goodbye lazy automated half-promoted content nuggets, goodbye old un-relevant and forgotten opt-in. My 2 criteria: do I (still) want to read this and do I have the time.

Free some space in your inbox and in your mind. On this topic and shared by a my friend Claudia: Digital World Cleanup Day. ​
