Creative Collision: Branding is Everything

Question: How important is branding? Type treatment? Icon? Is there a brand of an artist that stands out to you in your mind?

“You need to have a concept, something you’re trying to communicate,” says Cabell Harris of WORK Labs on branding. Harris believes that by bringing yourself into your work and “[making] the brand inviting,” people will ultimately want to “spend more time with [your] brand.”

In this Creative Collision video, industry experts will share their thoughts on branding, including:

  • Five things your branding must show to clients about who you are and what your work is
  • The importance of treating yourself as a client while developing branding
  • Why a brand must be built on a foundation that is deeper than a logo or slogan
