Original

Two ideas: on Global Brands which seem to have reached all four corners, and the direction earth and man is going..the pun on a state of flux and magnetic flux.

Escape the brands….not even at the North Pole….!
Earth in state of flux…on whose bearing do we follow?! Supposedly an infrared vision google view?

Spearmint Rhino..another pole!! and a Coke Flag sign..conquering!!.Franchises and the big Corporates..networks and hubs around the globe. True globalisation of product distribution and sales/marketing escaping no-one!. the other omnipresence…to make this a small world indeed..?

And of course without a global “centre of origin”..where would networks and location be calibrated from?
