Visual identity and branding are two terms that are often used to describe the process of creating a brand for your business or oneself. However, the two terms have different meanings. A visual identity provides the visual aspect of branding that businesses create in order to evoke certain feelings and experiences linked with the brand. A brand is much more than just the visual identity, but at times its understanding starts there.

This course will cover current generalization of visual identities that we are faced with within the field of visual communications. By covering the common mistakes, all efforts will be within the area of creativity and thinking outside merely the visual appeal or form itself. It will furthermore try to fully avoid such choices when creating a visual identity for a brand whether it is a company or a personal brand. Design and marketing wise the focus will be on true values that will be transformed into a visual identity. The end result will be a concise and well thought of solution to a specific niche a student has in plan or suggests during the course.

You will learn to understand the brand and values, as well as deduce the elements for implementation in the visual form of communication. Apart from that, you will be able to research and synthesize the common mistakes and propose alternative ways of creation bringing value to a brand. And that’s not all. You will be able to create and define elaborated guidelines and sketches for proposed visual identity, recreate, construct and evaluate the proposed visual identity bearing in mind the given and received side of visual communication and brand values. And last but not least, you will learn to simulate solutions of visual identity according with the media scope and brand activities, create and present the final project pitch and accompanying materials.
