Trendcentral says teens who have to wear school uniforms are painting brand names on their backpacks and such.

Generally I don’t put much stock in what Trendcentral says, though they do often point to interesting things in their newsletters. As Abe points out, there’s no information about sample size or polling methods but it’s still interesting. Fits nicely with what Adam and Anne said about branding during Grid::Blogging.

I was incredibly sick Monday during Grid::Blogging, so I didn’t write anything, but I was gonna try to come up with something about parents naming their kids after brands.
