How Lego rebuilt its brand brick by brick #eklectic

Lego, taking its name from ‘leg godt’, Danish for ‘play well’, began life in the early 1930s. In the 1950s the company, with founder Ole Kirk Kristiansen’s son Godtfred at the helm, introduced its system of play concept, with the interlocking plastic bricks we know today arriving in 1958. Through the introduction of its core principles of play, the company’s mission was, and still is, to inspire and develop the builders of tomorrow, enabling children to learn through play – thus ‘playing well’.

But Lego’s journey hasn’t been smooth, with decades of success preceding a brush with bankruptcy, followed by its meteoric rise in recent years to become the most powerful brand in the world, according to a February study published by Brand Finance.

How Targeted Ads Work

Do you get that creepy stalker feeling when seeing some ads? What you are seeing are retargeted advertisements. Retargeted ads are designed to capture the attention of the browser-window shoppers of the internet. While we continue our research around the web, they are tailored to redirect us back to just the right pair of socks. If you are a website owner — like eBay, flipkart or Amazo — ad tech companies provide a few lines of code for your website. Whenever someone visits your site, the code drops a browser cookie that will mark you anonymously as someone who has visited this site. After that, whenever you load Facebook or any other website with ads, the advertising networks will look at the cookies on your computer using the information about which websites you’ve visited to choose which ad to display.

The Unusual Origins of 6 Famous Brands

Many famous brands got their start in straightforward ways. For example, agricultural machinery giant John Deere was founded in the 1830s by an Illinois blacksmith who invented an innovative plow, and candy behemoth Mars Inc. can trace its beginnings to the early 1920s, when then-struggling candy maker Frank Mars launched the Milky War bar, which proved an immediate hit.
