Designing A Brand Strategy: Align, Inspire And Collaborate

September 29, 2021

Align and collaborate with tough clients, wayward partners and co-workers who always pick purple.

About this event

It takes time, strategy and cooperation to design the right brand concepts that go beyond aesthetic appeal to fit with your business or client’s vision and core values.

Our guest speaker Warren Daubert, Founder and Creative Director of Daubert Design Co., will walk you through the brand design process step-by-step and share a variety of practical examples. Warren will also explore in depth how to use a Discovery Session to help your team and stakeholders collaborate with each other to evaluate the brand, find alignment, tell the story, and achieve goals.

During this session you will learn:

  • Why branding is so important
  • How to stay authentic and align your purpose, values and goals to your brand strategy
  • The difference between a refresh and rebrand, and when you should consider a rebrand
  • How to start the creative process and collaborate with your designer/brand strategist
  • Inspiring and engaging tactics to get your teams to successfully conduct a brand evaluation and attain goals

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions throughout the session, and will receive a copy of the presentation materials after the event.
