Let’s start with this random name that came into my mind: Fulton. You have only read the name. Never heard of Fulton. But think about Fulton and let your brain start imagining.
Fulton, Fulton, Fulton…
How do you imagine Fulton as a company? Where does it come from? Did it start in London, Miami, Amsterdam or Barcelona? Is it a heritage brand or a start-up company? Do you see Fulton as a fancy company or a low cost brand? Is their e-commerce powerful? Would you like to be a Fultoner? Do you have the Fulton app? Does your mother wear a Fulton bag? Or do you drive a fast Fulton, sit on a Fulton couch, or eat ramen at the Fulton… Maybe you sleep on a Fulton mattress. Or you just opened a Fulton social media account.
You probably have an answer to some of these questions. You don’t know exactly why, but some answers are clear and about others, you have doubts. The name creates the thing. Evokes. Creates associations. Paints a picture in your brain. Starts a story.
