Successful brands are alive. They are able to activate the very forces of life because they embed our fundamental human motives, the evolutionarily preserved mechanisms that have helped us survive and thrive. Our fundamental human motives shape the language that is shared by everyone. Living Brands decodes this language and helps marketers, consumer insight managers, advertisers, designers, PR professionals, and brand owners bring brands to life. By using, for the first time, a multidisciplinary approach that includes client workshops, brand communication decoding, motivational research, cultural anthropology, sociology, philosophy, psychology, cognitive science, and affective neuroscience, Living Brands deconstructs and hierarchises the motives underpinning our consumer behaviour, allowing practitioners to build narratives that engage consumers at a profound human level.

In 1962, Masahiro Shima founded Shima Seiki, with the aim of developing a fully automated seamless glove-knitting machine. Following this success, the company expanded into flat knitting machines. However, the age of the computer brought a whole new era for Shima Seiki. By committing to computerization in its mainstream products, Shima Seiki gradually began to stand apart from its competitors. Shima Seiki's focus on computer-aided knit design and programming, in fact led to a revolution in the fashion industry.
Written by the inventor himself, this book looks at how Masahiro Shima developed both the technology and philosophy to enable his company to be market leaders in industrial knitting machines - and fundamentally change the fashion industry. This culminated in the launch of the company's Wholegarment knitting machine in 1995, which altered forever the way knitted garments are produced, and which today is used by fashion manufacturers across the world
