The Engagement Project shares insights, perspectives and ideas on how brands can connect with Gen C and consumers more deeply in the participation age. This fascination with the familiar is deeply rooted. As humans, we’ve always wondered, “Is this really all there is”? Marcel Proust knew. The great French novelist once wrote that the “voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes.” In other words, humans aren’t necessarily attracted to the allure of the new, as much as we like to see things we’re already familiar with in a new way.
This is exactly what’s happening on the web. It may seem that all we’re doing is just capturing every mundane moment. But look closely. These everyday moments are shot, displayed, and juxtaposed in a way that offers us a new perspective. And then all of a sudden these everyday moments, places and things look… fascinating.
This fascination with the familiar is deeply rooted. As humans, we’ve always wondered, “Is this really all there is”? Through poetry, art and philosophy – and now the visual web – we strive to elevate the everyday by feeding our appetite for imagination and discovery.
And the web allows us to do this on a scale we’ve simply never seen before. By seeing the miraculous in the mundane, we’re learning to fall in love with the world again, to laugh with it, and be fascinated by it.

Brand relevance creates an offer that is so innovative that it drives the development of a new category or subcategory for which competitors are not relevant anymore. We agree, for some time now but its good to see that Branding guru David Aaker’s made the effort to write book on this0 Brand Relevance: Making Competitor’s Irrelevant. This book shows how to turn away from destructive brand preference competition to focus on winning the brand relevance war.
