Can we use themes to help build our brand and make our business grow?

Can what we learn from one industry be applied to another?

Let's take for instance the Kiss Coffeehouse.

This design takes advantage of all the themes Kiss has developed over the years. The colorful makeup, the larger than life boots. Even the name KISS.

We can see how the concept was turned into an amazing outdoor attention grabbing building!

And then we can see how many more themes were carried on throughout the inside of the building. Check out the KISS name and the big guitar amps.

What do you think of this facility? Will it be profitable? Does it capture your attention and imagination? Does it help you think in terms of themes for your business?
