This image put together by writer and artist Steve Lovelace which he calls “Corporate States of America” is a great conversation starter for marketing junkies. While Lovelace meant it as social commentary (and I get that) most people miss that point.
Whether it serves a greater purpose (Be aware America, it’s a corporate country! Nice but not exactly a hidden gem) or not, it’s fun to go the lighter route and debate some of the choices. OK Pilgrims, start with the choice for California ……discuss!
This helpful update came from the folks at Adweek (along with some humorous commentary of its own)
UPDATE: A few of the states are hard to make out. New Jersey is Campbell’s, New Hampshire is Timberland, Vermont is Ben & Jerry’s, Rhode Island is Hasbro, Delaware is DuPont, and Hawaii is Hawaiian Airlines.
What’s your take?
