Mandela Day 2018

Mandela day is celebrated on 18 July each year. Thousands of people throughout the country and worldwide will remember the icon that is known for making a difference.

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela

Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela was born on 18 July 1918 and died on 5 December 2013. The Nobel Peace Prize winner and first elected President of a democratic South Africa will be remembered by many people across the world for as long as we live. His legacy of making a difference will be passed on from generation to generation for years to come.

Brand Innovation South Africa

Brand Innovation South Africa would like to be a part of making a difference not only on Mandela Day but each and every day we get to. We started off by becoming an eco-friendly online business and supplying eco-friendly products. We aim to save the environment as much as we can by recycling everything that’s recyclable.

67 Minutes at Brand Innovation will be spent remembering and honouring the anti-apartheid revolutionary, political leader and philanthropist. His love for not only the country but equality amongst humanity is what keeps the Brand Innovation team going. The spreading of peace, love and happiness is what we live for at Brand Innovation.

Nelson Mandela Quotes

“It always seems impossible until it’s done.”

“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but conquers that fear.”

“Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.”

“There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

Today marks the day we would have celebrated his 100th birthday.

May your legendary soul Rest In Peace Tata Madiba!


From the Brand Innovation Team.

The Importance of Gratitude

It is said that gratitude changes everything.

The giving of gifts and thank you cards is a sincere thank you to those who add value.
How often does a simple, "thank you" change everything? So often, someone can do so much for a friend, a family member, a company, a client, a supplier and all the effort is worthwhile when someone says thank you.

As they say, "manners maketh the man".

If you’d like, we can also add your branding on the opposite side of the design, or provide your own full colour branding for these stylish sublimation mugs.

Full colour branding is often something that people write out of their budgets as it can be infamously expensive. But with the new range of full colour sublimation branding, it doesn’t have to be. You can have a beautiful full colour design that will turn heads and create smiles wherever it goes. Wouldn’t it be lovely to make South African women smile?

Sublimation as a branding technique, is something akin to magic. The process involves turning ink from a solid into a gas and back into a solid without it passing through a liquid stage. You can put the magic into Women’s Day for your staff and clients with our Womens Day Gift Mugs.

Branded gifts are always well accepted and appreciated. Be the reason someone smiles and feels good.

A speaker that works for every occasion, is easily portable and produces great sound is a fantastic way to make a splash with your brand!


End of Year Gifts


It’s Christmas in July! Or rather, you should probably start thinking about Christmas in July. It sometimes seems like 2017 just started yesterday but that’s not quite the case. Unique end of year gifts are a great way to make your clients, partners and staff smile, and an awesome way to make them feel appreciated for all the hard work that they’ve done over the course of the year.

With our Bluetooth speakers you can encourage them to let their hair down and relax a little to their favourite music. These speakers also make a great gift for offices! We’ve used the Swiss Cougar Mega Boom Speaker at Brand Innovation and it has amazing sound quality! It also has man ways to connect to the device, from USBs and SD cards to AUX cables and, of course, Bluetooth.

The End of the Year is a time to give thanks and to look forward to the year that has yet to come. You can have people dancing forwards into the New Year with our awesome selection of high quality promotional speakers.


Top Electronic Gifts


Electronics make for amazing gifts! Whether they’re promotional gifts, corporate gifts or thank you gifts, this is an era when technology rules! So getting someone a gift that will help them enjoy their technology even more than they already do is fantastic way to celebrate! And the great thing about a Bluetooth speaker is that it is a device that is compatible with almost every device that’s Bluetooth enabled.

Bluetooth enabled means that both devices have Bluetooth radio transmitters. That’s right! Even in the age of satellites, Bluetooth is a radio transmission. It allows two devices to send and receive data from one another in real time so that you can send media files like pictures and music from one device to another without having to use cables for either of them.

This is particularly useful if you don’t have a connecting cable for those two devices. It also means that while you’re sharing files and enjoying your media then you don’t necessarily have to sit in one place and stare at the device until it connects.

Sometimes when you have an old connector cable you have to hold it at just the right angle on a still afternoon in mid-September if you want the devices to pair.  Modern technology means that Bluetooth is advancing all the time! Bluetooth transmitters are getting smaller, able to use less and less energy while doing more and having a wider range! This kind of technological advancement is what makes Bluetooth Speakers such a great gift, because the frequency is the same while the technology of the device changes.


Best Portable Speakers


The really great thing about a lot of our Bluetooth speakers is how portable they are. We have pocket sized speakers and speakers that you’d need to stand on your desk, all of which can get their playlists from a Bluetooth enabled device. Like your phone! A smart phone, and even generations of phones before this have had Bluetooth capabilities. This means that anyone with a phone can connect to your speakers and play their own music – which is a really fantastic way to keep the music at a party fresh and have something that everyone will enjoy! Because everyone can bring their own.

Many speakers, like the Mega Boom and the Mini Bomb are really easy to carry around. The Mega Boom because it has a strap that lets you carry it around over your shoulder and the Mini Bomb because it could fit into your pocket. Having speakers like this with your branding on them is a great way to have your brand spread smiles and good cheer wherever it goes! A perfect gift for the end of the year.


Must Have Gifts for Men


Boys and their toys, right? Men love something that they can play with and they especially love tech gadgets! You can have a really beautiful product with your brand on that men will love.
We have speakers like the Melody and the Harmony, which are both sleek squares. They have a sharp, sleek design in silver and white that looks amazing with a full colour brand and makes for a truly fantastic branding option.

Our range of Bluetooth speakers is suitable for everyone, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t the kind of tech heaven that a man will have trouble choosing his favourite out of. We have some beautiful high end brands that will give you the sound quality you crave with designs that are a feast for the eyes.
Like the Mega Boom, which can have beautiful wrap around branding on the barrel and can be accessed by just about every file sharing method known to man. Or the Atlantis, which has the really cool feature of being water proof so that you can listen to music and podcasts, or even take calls in the shower! Bluetooth speakers really are Must Have Gifts for Men!


Fun Promotional Gifts


They’re also really fun promotional gifts. A speaker like this is something that allows you to have fun and keep dancing no matter where you are. You can have a dance party with your sibling in the middle of the living room, or you can sing along to your favourite songs in the car. You can even take your tunes on a picnic so that you and your friends can sing along. This also makes it the perfect thing to take a long to a children’s birthday party – there’s no need to have a plug point to play pass the parcel or musical chairs. Just you, your phone, your speakers and a lot of happy kids!

Putting your brand on our speakers – which we can absolutely do, the methods for how we do this vary from speaker to speaker – can being smiles to everyone from young to old, making them really fantastic promotional products! And corporate gifts too!

Technology is so wide spread these days that anyone can find a use for a Bluetooth speaker, and a branded one is a great way to promote your brand with a product that people will enjoy using.


Waterproof Bluetooth Speakers


Waterproof? Really? The uses of a Waterproof speaker can go on and on. From using those shower acoustics to full advantage and giving yourself an awesome backing track to having pool party fun with the Volkano Splash Series, these speakers are a really great way to maximise your aquatic experience!
As mentioned before, the beautiful Atlantis Speaker is a domed speaker that you can stick to your shower walls with a suction cup. Bluetooth Shower Speakers are a great way to take your shower time solos to the next level. They come in pink, blue and black and are a really stunning gift for anyone who enjoys listening to media in the shower.
