Are You Who You Seem? Taking a Look at Brand and Identity
Date: Tuesday, April 25, 2023
3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Your organization has a brand – a promise of who you are, what you value, and how you will deliver. This story is told every day in dozens of ways to various audiences.
Your brand identity is the visual manifestation of that promise and is one of the most important ways you share your promise to others. This workshop offers participants the opportunity to look closely at their organization’s brand identity and check it against their brand promise.
The session will kick off establishing context and a shared nomenclature. Using the basic building blocks of a brand identity we will analyze a sample identity to reinforce context and nomenclature.
Participants will break into groups and will practice that analysis on their own organization and share that at their tables. After hearing from others in the group, each table will then select one organization to pursue further. As a team, you will write a design statement setting forth the goals for a new visual identity. Each table will summarize their report to the group.
The session will conclude with a list of resources, materials and approaches available to assist anyone undertaking a brand refresh.
This workshop is part of the TAM 2023 Annual Conference in San Antonio. All attendees must first be registered for the conference at large here.
