The past decade has seen an explosion in the number of boutique hotels the world over. Through clever branding and unique interiors, they capture our dreams and yearnings, providing refuge for vacationers and weary business travelers alike. No longer satisfied with the trappings of yesteryear, today’s visitors require more places that speak to their sense of self or aesthetic leanings. Stay With Me features some of the most brilliant brand strategies of recent years campaigns that integrate mission with material expression. Some of the hotels profiled evoke earlier century opulence, others a quiet minimalism. Both exhibit experiential differentiation through the interplay of design elements. Many house onsite eateries that will appeal to the most discerning foodies and provide even more opportunities for identity work. From creative “do not disturb”signs, to menus, wayfinding, stationery, bath product packaging and more, no potential canvas is overlooked.

The only constant is change—especially in today's business environment. Increasing globalization and the rise of new markets and technologies are forcing companies to compete in a more turbulent world than ever. To survive and thrive, organizations must be able to continuously evolve. Unfortunately, people tend to resist change. Uncertainty can be daunting, and people generally prefer to keep doing what they already know, avoiding unfamiliar situations, particularly in their work. The good news is that change can be managed using the same processes many organizations already use in their day-to-day project management activities. After all, every project results in some type of change to an organization. Building on the Project Management Institute's Managing Change in Organizations: A Practice Guide, and drawing on the project management expertise of a wide variety of authors, How Successful Organizations Implement Change explains the critical aspects of the change management process and outlines the methods that project, program, and portfolio managers can utilize to bring effective change in a complex and transient business context. For practitioners who are directly leading the change effort as well as those affected by it; for executives formulating strategies, even those managing operations; and for academics researching or teaching others about organizational change management, the examples provided in this book cover a broad range of industries and areas of business. How Successful Organizations Implement Change combines the change management knowledge of experts, academics, researchers, and practitioners with tools, processes, and templates, all of which make this volume a valuable resource, a must-have, for leaders of change in organizations.

Technological evolution gives people the possibility to receive information from different sources by means of various devices. In the field of branding, logos have to be optimized for smart phones, tablets, TVs and desktops and meet users’ needs at the same time. It’s not new; traditionally, a designer is used to preparing a few variants of the same logo to use for different purposes (horizontally, vertically, short, tall, small, etc.) in different media (book covers or spine, advertisements, positive/negative...). Today, in what is becoming a branding trend, the ability to adapt has assumed more importance given that within the diverse spectrum of current displays and formats a logo has to preserve its personality and identity in a wide range of sizes. Just like webpages, brands adapt and change their visual appearance depending on the width of display devices. For this, in some cases measurements are already taken to reduce logo details and reorganize identifiable elements to avoid losing the identity that characterizes them. In other cases, designers abandoned the old logos that no longer work well today and create more flat designs to suit today’s media. This book features both trends with detailed analysis to help designers make logos that are both useful and stylish in this digital era, through examples of brands with design variants for all types of physical and digital supports in addition to the responsive adaptation of the brand in diverse display formats.

‘New China Eyewitness’ is the fascinating account of the 1956 visit to the People’s Republic of China by a group of prominent New Zealanders – including Roger Duff, James Bertram, Evelyn Page, Angus Ross and Ormond Wilson – and of how Canterbury Museum came to acquire the largest collection of Chinese art in New Zealand. At the centre of the book is the eloquent diary kept by Canterbury Museum director Dr Roger Duff, detailing his efforts to bring to Christchurch the collection of antiquities gifted to the museum by long-time China resident, New Zealander Rewi Alley. Through Alley’s contacts with premier Zhou Enlai and Duff’s diplomatic skills they obtained the sanction of the Chinese government to circumvent its own export ban on antiquities and permit the gifting of seven crates of treasures to Christchurch. These objects were the basis for the museum’s Hall of Oriental Arts and their arrival led to a collections policy dedicated to Chinese art. Beautifully written and illustrated, ‘New China Eyewitness’ offers a rare glimpse of foreigners’ views of China during a period of rapid social, political and cultural change, and at a time of unusual political and cultural tolerance.
