Dumb, strong, hungry for Alpo.

Vonage’s newish tag, “one smart decision among many, many stupid ones,” has grown on me. Do they bite their thumb at me? Perhaps, but I’m convinced they’re catering honestly.

Looks like they were announced moons back, but I just caught my first advert for Livestrong Investment Portfolios. A fine example of how a brand can get appreciably sharper as a plethora of branded products actually better define it in the aggregate. Uncommon. (Anybody know who’s responsible for keeping Livestrong from dilution? Is it Wieden+Kennedy? I’m being lazy.)
