Like any consumer whore, i'm a sucker for well-designed brands. These are the brands I not only managed to relate to, in time, but which are also an allround constant of my life. These are the brands that surround me when I eat, sleep, work or go out. However disgusting I might find the entire corporate paradigm, I find myself all but a slave to marketing and PR departments of major corporations. I must consume and, when it comes to consuming, I have my preferences.
