457 - The Logo Show: A Special Live Shop Talk

David Defeo

Sitting at the intersection of branding, marketing, and entertainment we find the American tradition of Football. While there are plenty of stats and scandals to get lost in, the undercurrent of the NFL is about conveying a story of struggles, rivalries, and triumphs. In today's Live Shop Talk with Dan Kuhlken of DKNG Studios, Ben Neuhaus of Snake Oil Provisions, and special co-host Dave Kloc all join Mark Brickey on stage to see who will emerge victorious in the first annual LogoBowl. Our panel of experts run the gamut from die hard fans to fans of Die Hard who've never watched an entire game of sportsball so there will be some unexpected twists and turns where only the best designed logo will emerge. Behind the paid wall Mark invites up three Circle Of trust Members to the stage form some quick, tough love and an opportunity to share what their current struggles are.
