RGD Webinar: Brands Are Bigger Than They Appear

Presented by Kevin Budelmann, Author of Brand Identity Essentials



As people make choices in their personal and public lives, they seek meaningful experiences. A brand is a way for them to encapsulate and describe these things, often in a commercial context. A cynic may view branding as deception, but power in the right hands can yield positive results with a cultural impact - from the biggest ideas to the smallest details.


It can be hard to know where to begin to address the complexity of customer experience, but a recipe can help. In this webinar, Kevin Budelmann introduces you to the concepts covered in the second edition of his book Brand Identity Essentials, including a model for thinking about brand building that can help you make decisions and create systems. 



Whether you're a studio designer, brand manager, student or educator, you'll walk away with a reference to help guide the everyday decisions you make on the brand-building journey.
