  • What is 5G - and why is it so important?

    5G will be one of the most important enablers to the 4th Industrial Revolution - but it must be a "pull" model from these innovative business domains rather than a "push" model from the telecommunication industry. Good, clear and constistent communication and conversations will be vital.

  • Presenting your offering

    Offerings to gods have been a part of human history for as far back as you care to go. Brand offerings to consumers, not so much. But in recent years, as new technologies and shifting audience demands disrupt the standard pillars of industry, evolving and clarifying your offering to key markets has undoubtedly become more and more important.

  • GDPR and a framework for the future

    To kick things off, a confession: when I first heard of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), the new rules that will change how businesses handle personal data when they come into force on the 25th May, my initial reaction was cynicism.

  • Hunkvertising

    When we talk about objectification, many people might assume that it’s a reference to women. But male objectification is just as important a subject for the gender equality debate, especially since it has increased within advertising.

  • What does Brexit mean for the media and entertainment sector?

    Much has been written regarding Brexit, and the impact this will have on some of our leading industries, including retail, farming, automotive and finance. But what does it mean for our creative sector, particularly media and entertainment? This is something I feel has received comparatively little public attention from politicians and press during the early stages of Brexit.

  • The importance of the Circular Economy – why we should all be interested

    Economic growth, while desirable, tends to be linked to consumption, yet consumption cannot continue indefinitely at the expense of the earth’s resources. But there is a movement, ‘the Circular Economy’ which encourages large and small businesses, organisations and individuals to look at all their processes and habits to minimise consumption and waste.

  • Discourse, debate and disagreement: how to work in 2018

    Perhaps one of the biggest conversations of 2017 was about conversation itself. What was allowed to be spoken and where? Who could speak about which topics? People came forward having previously felt unable to speak up, while others felt silenced and marginalised. No-platforming seemed to become the biggest platform of all.

  • Three reasons transparency is vital: anger, villages and tomatoes

    From Triodos Bank to Abel and Cole’s organic food, some brands have made their values clear and made transparency a priority. At KISS, we would argue it’s worked for them. I also believe it’s time for all brands to up their game or get caught out.

  • We’re all Fontaholics

    Before I start droning on about the power of fonts and how they influence the way we see words, let’s get one thing clear: a font is not a typeface. A font is a family of typefaces with similar characteristics, whilst a typeface is just a single member of that family. If that helps.

  • Porn Star Martini or a Prosecco?

    On a recent work social, I spotted a colleague supping a delectable looking cocktail…accompanied by a shot of Prosecco. Too tempting to resist. On further investigation (to use the technical term: sampling) I discovered this delight was called a Porn Star Martini.

  • How living your brand values can turn a lead into gold

    Values. Look at any major brand from any industry, be it Google or Airbnb, Coca-Cola or Starbucks, and you’ll see that they have a set of them. The importance of these values in terms of building relationships with consumers is clear – as Howard Schultz, the Starbucks CEO, said: “If people believe they share values with a company, they will stay loyal to the brand.”

  • The demise of stuff?

    It’s a fact. We’re all buying less stuff. But we’re still spending more. The past decade has seen the gradual rise of the so-called ‘experience economy’.
