Brand-Transvisuality: on Collaborative Brand Innovation Practices – the Enabling Role of the Visual

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Nicky Nedergaard, Anders Ib Michelsen

Co-creation is emerging as a dominant business model for innovation pointing to co(llaborative) practices between firms and customers. These practices typically involve new ideas about firm-customer dialogue, for instance on terms of accessibility/transparency and risk assessment. More recently, the concept of co-creation has been applied to the brand management literature. Co-creation is viewed here as a collaborative approach to the management of brand meaning through firm-customer dialogue, supported by ‘images’ encompassing coded messages, perceptions, and emotions. Traditionally not part of brand research, these views point further to direct involvement of intuitions and imagination. This chapter presents a grounded reflection on how the visual, as a non-representational matter, may support this new venue of collaborative brand (meaning) innovation practices.
