A Branding Collection

For our semester long project, we will be creating a branding collection for a company of your choice. Your company can be fictional or real, but it must have products or services to sell. Think about a cafe, spa, restaurant, shop or even a self-branding campaign.

1. Create a company

2. Mission Statement (500 words or less)

3. List of products/goods

4. Target Audience / Demographics (500 words or less)

Design Checklist:

1. Color logo (vector graphics). Consider using Kuler for color palette inspiration. (Illustrator)

2. Business Card (front and back) (Illustrator/InDesign)

3. Mailer/Postcard (front and back) to promote new business (Illustrator/InDesign)

4. Magazine Ad – What magazine would be appropriate to choose? Download/contact potential magazine for ad specs and budget

5. Building Signage: vinyl lettering, billboard, kiosk, product packaging (choose one that is appropriate to your particular collection)

6. Build a multimedia presentation in  Prezi

7. Build an interactive PDF for download. Think interactive brochure/pamphlet or form. (2 pages)

8. Build the front page of a website

9. Design a Flash animation for company web banner OR Flash animated logo

Additional questions to consider: 

How would your marketing multimedia branding strategy change for the mobile market? Would you design an app? A separate page for iPads? An interactive iBook? A short video piece? A viral YouTube video?
