Corporate Branding Expert Stanley Moss to Speak at UCSB

He will serve as the featured speaker at the CCS Literature Symposium on April 18

Stanley Moss, an alumnus of UC Santa Barbara’s College of Creative Studies and an expert in corporate branding, will be the featured speaker at the CCS Literature Symposium on April 18.

Moss, a 1972 graduate of CCS with a degree in literature, will speak at 4 p.m. in the campus’ Old Little Theatre. The event is free and open to the public.

Moss, who describes himself as a brand philosopher, writer and artist, was based in New York City for 25 years, where he created brand solutions for clients such as Citibank, Coca-Cola, the French American Chamber of Commerce, Drexel Burnham Lambert, UC Berkeley, Intel, The New York Times and the American Hotel & Motel Association. He is the founder of Diganzi, a brand consultancy.

In February 2006, Moss was named chief executive officer of The Medinge Group, a Stockholm-based think tank on international branding. He also worked as an artist, exhibiting landscapes in the U.S. State Department Art in Embassies program. He had a long association with the New York art journal BOMB as director and designer.

His “New Wave Cookbook” is in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art in New York. He serves as brand ambassador for Gottschalk+Ash of Zürich, Switzerland, and as travel editor for Lucire, a New Zealand fashion magazine. He also serves on the board of the Rocket Mavericks Foundation and on the advisory board of Proton Business Schools of Indore and Ahmedabad, India.

Much of Moss’s work today focuses on brand theory and consulting. His novel, Runtime, set in a fictional software company in New Delhi, will be published this spring by Prakash Books.

For his CCS Literature Symposium presentation, Moss will read a chapter titled “The Brand as Jihad” from an earlier novel, The Book of Deals. His speech will be followed by a brief presentation on branding and a question-and-answer session.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
