Building A Multisensory Brand

In addition to visual and sonic brand strategies, Mastercard has also embarked on a journey to tap into the sense of taste. Taste has a very close connection to the primal brain. It affects consumers rapidly. For the most part, people tend to like or dislike a taste instantaneously. And if they don’t like something instantly, it can take them a long time to acquire a taste for it. Taste is very natural to a brand associated with edible products or drinks.

Vote-counting was far from over when Tanzanian opposition leader Seif Sharif Hamad was frustrated enough to call people onto the streets. As thwarted observers alleged the most blatant election fraud in the country’s history, and with no way to challenge the results in court, there was little to do but protest. As they walked toward a roundabout in the semi-autonomous region of Zanzibar on Thursday, police fired tear gas, then arrested them — Hamad's second arrest in a week.
