Having pioneered brand valuation in the 1980s, they need a deep understanding of the impact of strong brands on the key stakeholder groups that influence the performance of the business. Interbrand has kicked off with the 4th edition of its Breakthrough Brands 2021 report.

Hence, Breakthrough Brands 2021 celebrates the start-ups, upstarts, and challengers making an enormous impact within the world.

It has broken away from the bonds of being in limited space and went online encouraging multiplayer campaigns, and it is becoming a channel in its own right. Its increasing popularity and influence have led to the “gamification” of other industries, from sports betting and fitness to finance and healthcare. The report also mentions brands like Pipe, Dapper Labs, and high-end cycling company Zwift, which uses game like graphics to capture the adventurous journey each route will bring. And as gaming blends and bleeds into different arenas, its rich visual culture and history prove to be a well of inspiration for graphic designers and design thinkers alike.

The Breakthrough Brands 2021 report outlines 30 brands challenging their respective categories and breaking through within the US market.
