This is the process >>

  • We will meet once a week in person
  • You will receive the weeks instructions and homework one week prior to class starting on Monday. That homework will need to be completed by the first class so that we can jump right in and get started. You will get your second weeks homework on the first day to be finished by Week Two.

  • A Brand Identity not just a logo, or colors, or slogan, but it is the idea that everything it owns, produces, says, and does reflects the core values of the business as a whole. One major role in the 'brand' of a company is its identity. Yes the identity is based around visual devices such as the color pallet, fonts, images, and the use of them. 
  • keeping these guidelines or "Kit of Parts" coherent allows your brand as a whole to the recognizable. 
  • Brand –The perceived emotional corporate image as a whole.
    Identity – The visual aspects that form part of the overall brand.
    Logo – Identifies a business in its simplest form via the use of a mark or icon.

   Here is what you Don't get

  • Trendy out of date next year graphics bought online
  • Copied seeing someone else or ten someone else's with your logo and brand (they will want to copy you but can't because your trademarked
  • Cliche everything is original to your brands
  • Bad TYPOGRAPHY Every see a poster or a letter or an image and think "why is this so hard to read?" It's all about how the words are placed on a page. 
  • Design in WORD PROCESS programs Ok wait, you will use word but not to create design, or logos, or anything other then what it was intended for!!!
