It is with deepest regret and great sadness that we are witness to the death of another giant of the brand world.

Times change, but we can’t help but think those sharp-eyed creatives at Carter Wong Tomlin have missed a trick. After all, in these brand-crazy days, when identities can change with each print run, the survivors are those with legs.
