Idean Design Webinar

Brand big or go home

July 2, 2020

Online event

Great companies don’t brand who they are — they brand what they do.

Your brand isn’t what you say it is — it’s what others say it is based on their experience. And there will come a point, new company or old, when you realize you’re in fact actively building your brand every minute, every day — the only question is how intentionally, and how well, you’re doing it.

A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories, and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product or service over another.Seth Godin

This webinar is for both challenges early-stage companies who’ve assumed that “the product is the marketing” and therefore branding isn’t a priority, and for more mature organizations who fear their cultures have lost their fire, their brands have lost their relevancy, or their communications have lost their audience.

Join us on Thursday, July 2nd at 11:00 am PST

We’re excited to welcome as our special guests Wise, a disruptor in the financial services industry. We worked with them to launch a new brand in rapid time. We’ll open up the steps we took and the challenges that we solved together, and discuss the continuing rebranding journey and the advice they have for others.

Join our webinar as we take you through branding from the experience perspective.

You’ll see how we help you:

  • Bring new relevancy — and urgency — to what seem like tired marketing-only ideas such as “vision,” and “mission”
  • Adopt “values” that don’t just end up as empty words on posters
  • Create a visual identity that truly expresses your organization’s unique identity, point of view, and value
  • Leverage powerful branding in the early-growth stages
  • Develop brand guidelines that achieve their most important objective — ensuring a distinctively branded experience
