BRNDD: Conversations with Creatives

Branded by dictionary definition in the commerce world means carrying the brand or trademark of a manufacture. In today’s world, the definition of a brand has opened up much more. Brand’s can be the label names we wear, the companies we support, down to our own individual selves. Join BRNDD hosts, Donte’ Cotton and Ronald James as they interview not just people behind the brands but also some of the influencers on these brands. Musicians, artists, athletes and store owners have created their own brand and we want to examine how these worlds collide. So tune in as BRNDD takes you inside the world of today’s creatives.
