Branding is a process of self-discovery — to uncover the one meaningful idea at the center of a company that makes it rise above. Branding is the deliberate effort you make to help your clients say, "This is who I am" to the world. It's the process of defining, shaping and influencing — both strategically and creatively — the purpose, story and meaning of a brand that the audience should experience.
People are interested in why brands do what they do, what they believe in, how their products and services are created, and the values that surround the business. As designers, we are charged with the visual and verbal handling of a brand, but our greater responsibility is to bring our client's brand purpose to life.
In this one-hour webinar, branding & design experts Sunny Bonnell and Ashleigh Hansberger share their purpose-driven branding philosophy, and how they have used their unique point of view to build their award-winning firm Motto. Sunny and Ashleigh will give attendees an in-depth look into the journey of building a world-class brand by taking you through a recent comprehensive branding project. In this lively discussion, you'll receive hands-on, strategic and practical tips every designer should consider as you begin your journey to create more value in your work, develop a unique point of view and grow your business.
