"Marketing historically has been obsessed with the concept of positioning – how you are different to your competitors in your category. Increasingly, great brands are realizing that people don’t see categories and don’t obsess about them. What actually matters is having a point of view on the world, a cultural mission to ask people to rally around." -- Gareth Kay, Modernista!
"There are no bad cars built, milk is milk and laptops are laptops. They're all pretty much parity products now and I think companies are going to have to connect with consumers in a greater way than simply with their products. Emotionally and culturally they're going to need to be more significant." -- Gary Koepke, Modernista (in Shots)
