Olé! In times of facing new challenges, new cities and new projects, I’m more than happy to announce that I work on a new setup of this blog, evolving from a documentation page to a platform of interesting insights and ideas. There will be a website including 15 brand essentials and 15+ interviews with professionals from branding, design, strategy, PR, marketing and brand management, steadily extended with regular updates. Finally the whole thing steps out of the lab and gets the chance to inspire people! Check out ejochum.com in the meanwhile!
Some weeks ago I sat down with Philipp Kanape, founder and creative director of Graz- and Vienna-based design studio EN GARDE, to talk about his view on #branding in today’s fast-moving world and why brands need to encourage open conversations. Thanks for your valuable inputs, Philipp! And I’m excited to join your team soon for doing awesome stuff! Thru the heart!
I’m happy to announce that I soon will sit down with Alexander Egger to talk about his thoughts on #branding. He is art director, designer, author, publisher, curator, illustrator, artist and musician based in Berlin. As a designer he focuses on integrative and holistic solutions, strategic brand development, cultural communication and editorial design. Check out his work at www.alexanderegger.com
Whoop! Finally I found the time to transcribe and translate all discussions I had with branding, communication and design professionals in Germany, Austria and Switzerland. What a nice crew, no? I’m also happy to announce that the Dynamic Branding Manifesto will be released in August. Good things take time!
Thanks to the crew of EINSICHTEN – especially Felix Kapolka – for having me for a talk and a discussion on #brands alongside Daniel Kranz at HTW Berlin. It was a pleasure!

Today I met Steven Cook, Creative Director & Partner at Edenspiekermann_in Berlin, to capture his view on recent developments and remarkable changes in #branding. Thanks for having me, Steven! With this interview I complete the collection of expert insights (for now) to focus on the release of the Dynamic Branding publication. Interesting stuff coming up!
This week I sat down with Johanna Ecker, Associate Director Digital Branding at Interbrand Berlin, to talk about her experiences and her view on current developments and challenges in #branding. Thanks for your time and insights, Johanna! The full interview will be part of the Dynamic Branding publication which is going to be released in spring 2015.
Great news: I proudly announce that I’m going to collaborate with Brand Perfect (www.brandperfect.org) to share more thoughts on the modern understanding of #branding and about #BrandHolism. The platform is an an initative by Monotype and aims to help brands keep pace with technological change and create seamless interactive experiences. Details about the cooperation are coming very soon. Excitement, whoop!
