CoolBrands 2012/2013

I was invited over to BoxPark earlier today for the official announcement of CoolBrands 12/13. For those that don't know this is a list of some of the world's coolest brands, picked by influencers in areas industries such as music, fashion and well known personalities. This year's Expert Council included the likes of Susie Bubble, Plan B, Alex Box, and Sadie Frost, amongst many others. There are 39 personalities on the Council, and alongside votes from the British public.

The CoolBrands Top 20 list has been around since 2001, and is announced every September, alongside a very gorgeous hardback book.

I'd not heard of this list before but its really interesting seeing what brands they've picked. I was surprised to see BBC iPlayer so high up but considering that I wouldn't know what to do with myself half the time without it it probably deserves its place on the list! x
