If you’re bored at work and you’re looking for something to help you pass the time, this puzzle will help cure you of that boredom. Brandscape is what happens when marketing meets Where’s Waldo?, and the results are spectacularly amusing.
Aptly described as a “fiendishly difficult cryptic puzzle,” Brandscape, created by Funding Circle, provides you with visual clues for 60 globally recognized brands and companies in one image, and it’s your job to determine what brand those images stand for. Sounds simple, right? They were correct in calling it fiendishly difficult because the puzzle is definitely challenging. There are some easily recognizable interpretations, but the ease of finding the answers for the more obvious clues gives you a sense of false hope that you’ll be able to answer all 60 questions quickly.
If you can answer all 60 correctly, you’ll be the #BrandscapeMaster and your name will be in the Brandscape Hall of Fame. That’s no easy feat, though, since you have to be knowledgeable about film, literature, music, nature, and enjoy a good pun. If you ever get stuck, there’s a Help! button you can click on that will allow you to ask your friends on social media for some advice. You can even send a tweet to @FundingCircleUK if you’re really stuck, they might just give you a nudge in the right direction.
