Lesson 1 – Intro to Corporate Identity
How does a company and organization project a coherent identity that’s as recognizable as a human personality? Lesson One explores the history, purpose, and possibilities of corporate identity. The lesson presents the concept of experienced value and how it relates to visual design and includes case studies of CBS and BMW.
Lesson 2 – Design and Corporate Strategy
Where do company logos come from and how do they evolve? Lesson Two looks at the reasons for identity overhauls and how to make the most of change. Case studies of British Airways, Texaco, and others are discussed to explore the connection between company identities and changes in national and worldwide consciousness.
Lesson 3 – Designing a Corporate Brand
What skills do you need to design a great company logo or communicate with a corporate client? These characteristics will be discussed in Lesson Three so you can work professionally and with the needs of clients and consumers in mind. A case study documenting the evolution of the BBC identity will be explored.
Lesson 4 – Design Process and Methodology
Lesson Four focuses on the first of three critical phases of company design. Methods of solving important problems will be addressed, which is key to successfully handling the actual company identity creation. You will also explore a case study of NSB, a Norwegian railway company that decided to modernize its identity, only to encounter a world of problems in need of solutions.
Lesson 5 – From Solution to Evaluation
Every problem has a solution, and in this lesson we present the “solution phase” of the design process with a focus on generating effective ideas, overall strategies, and the all-important design manual. The lesson wraps up with a look at the “evaluation phase” in which solutions are put to the test.
Lesson 6 – Product and Corporate Design
A company logo is merely cosmetic without a strong product to back it up, and we’ll look at the role the product plays in a company design in this lesson. Specifically, you’ll explore how identity is presented through product designs from Apple and Sony.
Any designer or aspiring designer wanting to develop their experience and knowledge of designing brands will find this course useful. Marketers and business leaders will also benefit from this training If you’re considering a brand update, working through the brand identity creation process will be a valuable exercise — even if you ultimately end up working with an expert!
