FROM T HE EDI T OR

LOOKING FORWARD AND BACK
In our final issue of the year, we take a look back at the brands winning the hearts and minds of influential
social media users across the globe. This look at Top Brands in 2017 expands on our project called, The List,
which ends nearly every issue of Brand Experience magazine. Created in partnership with research and
insights firm Nextatlas, which clusters and ranks the social media content produced by a selected worldwide
community of early adopters and influential insiders.
This expanded coverage includes not only includes the data, in refreshed infographics created by art
director and illustrator Don Heyl, but also includes profiles of each brand to help you more clearly
understand what's resonating with consumers. Turn to page 24 to learn more about these winning brands.
We also partnered with global innovation research and advisory company, Stylus, to bring you a look ahead
to 2018. In Marketing Trends to Watch, starting on page 8, Tessa Mansfield, chief creative officer at Stylus,
explores how consumers will continue to push brands to become about more than just their products and
address both personal and broader issues around sustainability, diversity and wellbeing will have even
greater market and social prominence.
Mansfield explains how brands across categories can no longer afford to look the other way when it comes
to delivering innovative approaches to waste or giving your packaging a second lease of life. She'll also
explore why brands need to evolve packaging from an inanimate object into an expressive statement piece
that can open lines of communication, replacing shame and ignorance with openness and understanding;
to support everyday consumers on the social platforms they use to self-express; use packaging more
innovatively to support consumers' pursuit of wellness; leverage artificial intelligence to gain brand attention
and loyalty; and more.
Finally, I'd like to remind you to nominate your peers for the 2018 Brand Leaders & Rising Stars competition!
This competition is my favorite because it spotlights the appreciative and generous nature of the branding,
marketing and design communities. Every year, members of these communities nominate their peers
and customers at consumer-facing brands for the many different award categories, including marketing
and branding, design, innovation, business leader, and finance and
procurement. In many ways, this is an opportunity to recognize two
great people with one award: the winners for their work, and those
nominating for their generous appreciation of the marketing and
design leaders working on their same consumer-facing brands
or working in a CPG with which they partner. If you haven't yet
nominated someone for the contest, please visit www.bxpmagazine.
com/brandleaders-risingstars2017 to make your nomination today.
The best video nominations will become part of the on-stage
program at the very first BXPLive! (www.bxplive.com) to be
held in southwestern coastal Florida from February 26 to
28, and they will be considered for future events.
