Bulldog defines a foundational brand programme for Sparkbow

Unlike advertising, were the last message seen is often what is recalled, the meaning transmitted by a new brand’s first products, communications and actions will structure long-term perceptions. The importance of endowing a positive memory tag at first contact cannot be emphasised enough.
