Creating an identity for a company is more than designing a logo in black and white and color. Developing a successful corporate identity and applying it to our current culture of consumption and need for instant gratification is harder than ever before. A company's image must be engaging and constantly break through a lot of noise and elevate it’s messaging into an entirely cohesive experience. Strong marketing campaigns cross over from print, to digital, to environmental and back again. Developing a company’s image requires a deep knowledge of your audience and competition, the market in general, tactics, psychology, awareness, intuition, flexibility, and courage. This course will push you to break boundaries to create impactful, meaningful work that resonates. Prerequisite: Basic InDesign / Photoshop experience
