Oh retail, cursed is thine name. Unless of course your venture has a great name like Icon and a brilliant concept such as the one being espoused by the forward thinking partners of this new venture.

We had a very specific way of dancing, and a very specific sound. There were a lot of lasers and a lot of drugs. It was sublime.

Do you remember when you loved a brand, just because it was The Brand? This was all before houses started burning out and throwing out directional designers like they were old engine parts.
