Toot Your Own Horn Preview – Sean Branagan

“Branding and Message Development” will be presented by Sean Branagan at the April 8th UNYSLA meeting, “Toot Your Own Horn.”  Here is a preview:

Part 1: Branding is not about the logo or tagline

Many of us have been fooled: We have been taught to believe a brand is a logo or “mark” or cute tagline. These are assets of a brand. Using well-known successful brands as example, we will discuss the process of creating a brand key and how to use it to guide the development of brand assets: logos, colors, themes, taglines, campaigns, etc.
