Visual Stories: The Brands I Like To Wear

I decided to do something different this time...

Nowadays, people are too lazy to read- that is a very unfortunate fact. As a blogger that produces meticulous sentences, it can be disheartening at times. There are days when I stare at my metrics and wonder if how many people really read all my blog paragraphs without paying too much attention to the photographs. Content is king, yes, but you can't ignore the trend where people like everything visual and no-brainer. Troublesome, indeed. But then again, I keep asking myself why I started blogging in the first place and everything falls back into place.

For today's blog issue, I decided to play around with my pictures and do some creative imagery with the brands I love to wear (and since I miss tinkering in Adobe Photoshop & Illustrator). First and foremost, these brands, a tad bit expensive as they may be, have always been special to me. They all have their creative impact and some of them tell sentimental stories.

The Brands I Like To Wear:

Tommy Hilfiger 
I think my love for advertising plays a big role when I talk about Tommy Hilfiger. An unknown fashion designer gets a creative billboard where he was outrageously be placed with 3 of America's biggest fashion names. And George Louis was the culprit of it all."I worked like an animal", were the words of the designer at that time to prove the doubters that he was worthy to be placed there. And he did. The great Tommy Hilfiger, in a way, was like my spirit animal.

Ever since I was little my Grandfathers would always use the "green crocodile logo" to peak my interest in animals. I was a big fan of Animal Planet and Discovery Channel back then. They did it so many times that I finally fell in love with the green crocodile. Little did I know that more than the design, I was already falling in love with the brand. Oh! In case you guys didn't know, Arnie bought me the white Lacoste sneakers last Christmas. That girl knows me too well.

Ah yes, Zara. I really like the designs the brand always presents. What I didn't like about it was the hefty price-tag (not gonna' lie). I remember back in College that I really wanted to buy a particular denim jacket at Zara. Since it was way out of my budget, I decided to do a piggy bank project. But when it was time to do the deed, thesis got in the way so I had to prioritize. So with projects rolling in, I think it's fair that I spoil myself with Zara from time to time.

Okay I get it maybe 10% of the population, but c'mon, who doesn't love Disney right?
