The Long Road To Become a Cult Brand

It is quite likely that the dream of many brands is to cross the border and become material that goes a step further, that is, to become brands that consumers feel more than just appreciation. Not a few brands would want to become cult brands, those with a large fan base and, above all, see how those consumers themselves are advocates, propagators and supports for the brand. The followers of one of these brands are loyal to it and, besides, they are enthusiasts who not only always buy their products but also function as a kind of evangelists of the same.

We need to make digital things to look more natural.

Since the beginning of time, human beings have had to deal with their environment. Animals and nature have been our inseparable companions, and as a consequence, our internal programming is prepared to interact, protect and take advantage of their natural habitat. In spite of this, times change, and today we find ourselves immersed in a technological world, which, far from visualizing itself reversible, seems to be advancing by leaps and bounds towards an increasingly technological society. But is the brain also prepared for this technology? The truth is that the brain is not yet fully "adapted" to it. A child learns to handle different devices from the earliest years of life. However, it is mere learning early. Innately, children are born more prepared to interact with their environment. Our brain seems to continue to be more attracted to those natural sounds, shapes, colors and movements. Some of the most prestigious Universities in the world proved this
