Capturing the character of the IBM brand

In this two-minute tour, the roots of the IBM brand are traced to the company’s management of its character. Narrated by Jon Iwata, IBM Senior Vice President, Marketing and Communications, “IBM on Brand” draws from VSA’s longstanding collaboration with IBM, which now spans nearly 20 years and encompasses our work as brand agency of record.

“_____ on Brand” is a series of short films created by VSA Partners to capture the current thinking behind leadership brands—specifically, their origins and intent, audiences and ingredients, and business or societal impact.
