Nostalgic Cell

Cell phone brands revamp retro designs, or choose to market with them

Implications - Tech brands are leveraging the nostalgia associated with some of their old cell phone designs by either incorporating those styles into new phones, or by using those retro models to market their new products. This strategic use of nostalgia fosters a stronger connection between the brand and the consumer, as modern day consumers are increasingly immersed in routine tech that is no longer novel.
Workshop Question - How can your brand better leverage nostalgia within the brand-customer relationship?
