Given the complexity of this current era many people feel that the path forward is increasingly unclear. Furthermore, they appear to have lost trust in political institutions and the media. In response, people have placed their trust in brands, particularly brands that are easy to understand; transparent and honest; caring for and meeting their needs; innovative and fresh; and useful. In short, brands that are simple.
