JUDO COMMUNICATION is it true?
What is the talking point? Using friction and rumor to create conversation about the brand.
Reach the people that count instead of counting the people you reach!
The idea needs to flow! If it stops get rid of it.
Important to get back to the feeling of the brand. How do you bring back the original philosophy and values of the brand?
Look good, feel good, do good. Communication covers everything!
Responsible Fashion. In collaboration with the customer. Create & Collaborate. It still must look good! It's Fashion!
