Service-Dominant (S-D) logic has sparked a renewed conceptualization of brands, which are considered as experiential processes co-created by service system actors. Drawing on this S-D logic-based reconceptualization of brands, in conjunction with the Organic view of the Brand (OVB), we offer insight into the deployment of value co-creation as a strategic tool for developing intangible brand assets. We also outline specific actors' brand-related resource contributions that are conducive to value co-creation's development. Based on these analyses, we propose a conceptual framework that highlights relevant service system actors' brand-related contributions in co-creating the key intangible brand assets of brand heritage, brand identity, and brand meaning. We conclude by pointing out important implications that arise from these analyses.
