Brand Flip Workshop

One-day workshop with Marty Neumeier

In this fast-paced workshop, brand expert Marty Neumeier will help you make the leap from designing experiences to designing customers.

About this Event

This hands-on event will show you how to design brands that matter. People are no longer consumers or market segments or tiny blips in big data. They don’t buy brands. They join brands. They want a vote in what gets designed and how it gets delivered. They’re willing to roll up their sleeves and help out—not only by promoting the brand to their friends, but by contributing content, volunteering ideas, and even selling products or services.

At the center of the workshop is the Brand Commitment Matrix, a simple framework for positioning your brand against the competition. You’ll build out four key components of the matrix, including your brand’s “onlyness”—the most powerful way to make any brand more strategic and dramatically increase your value as a designer.

No preparation is required for this workshop. Just bring your own brand or the brand of a client to work on.
