Lighter side of branding | Being grateful to a grand idea…

Logo_JP-Morgan-Chase_dian-hasan-branding_US-1In the USA, the period between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Eve marks the most important calendar of the year for festivities that bring family, friends, neighbors, communities, and other loved ones together to express gratitude, do good unto others, bring smiles to the less fortunate, besides all the merrymaking… and of course the biggest shopping season of the year for which any retailer is hoping and praying will make their year, and put it in the black.

Beautifully crafted, with a message and visuals that speak volumes!! Enjoy!

The TVC may be geared toward an American audience, but the message is universal!

Let’s give thanks to an idea
A grand idea called America
The idea that if you worked hard,
if you had a dream,
if you worked with your neighbors…
you can do most anything.

This led to other ideas,
like liberty, and rock & roll.
To free markets, free enterprise,
and… free refills.

It put a man on the moon,
and a phone in your pocket.
Our country has gone through a lot
over the two centuries and a half.

But this idea isn’t fragile.
When times are tough,
it rallies us as one.

Everyday more people believe in the American idea.
And when they do,
the dream comes true.

We’re grateful to be a part of it.

And it comes to a close, with “Happy Holidays, from all of us at JPMorgan Chase & Co.”
