Hey there gamer. This is the official blog for the recently written IPA Diploma dissertation ‘Gaming Brands’.

What Is Gaming Brands?

‘Gaming Brands’ is an approach to brand planning that applies the principles of gaming to brand building. This approach represents a fundamental shift from building brands as message transmission devices, to building brands as behaviour change systems. This approach is firmly rooted in established human psychology, leveraging our predisposition to ‘game’ life to further the commercial aims of brands operating in the modern world. Gaming Brands has implications for those who understand consumers as active participants and wish to build truly interactive brands to suit their needs.
