I created this site back in 2009 to share content gathered from my favorite online sources: most of them related to art and design but also websites, videos and short essays on anything from science and management to cool infographs. More often than not, figments has been about distributing content rather than creating it. I have also shared someimpressions about my most recent trips abroad. I recently came back from a four-months journey to India (studying at IIM-Lucknow); if you've followed my previous entries, you will know I am fascinated by Asian cultures.

“The grand theory of lifestyle brands is that in a world of shifting values – as religion and traditional politics, and old given identities of region, community and workplace fade – people increasingly look to brands to express themselves.
In [emerging economies] countries, important western brand choices start by just asserting wealth and success – something better, internationally recognised and miles more expensive than the local brand. Then, as markets evolve, brands will say more complex things as [consumers] start to define who and what they identify with, who they want to be.” - Peter York
