talent? Luck? A sex scandal? Design agency Studio Alto took Good Weekend journalist Konrad Marshall on a ‘journey to discover his inner personal brand’.
Marshall, a long form journalist for Fairfax’s largest Australian newspaper The Age, worked with Studio Alto over a series of months to create his personal brand. Konrad wrote about the entire process in the paper’s Saturday magazine, Good Weekend, from finding a design studio, to the creative process, to living his new brand.
“I’m not sure I’m cut out to be a shill for myself, but that’s the point of this piece: to become Konrad 2.0, to explore the branded man and what it means to be CEO of Me, Incorporated,” Marshall said.
