NETWORKING BREAKFAST (9:00 – 9:45)
INTRODUCTIONS (9:45 – 10:00)
I. EVOLVING AN ICON: THE STORY BEHIND THE STARBUCKS REBRANDING AND THE FUTURE OF BRAND DESIGN (10:00-11:00AM)
In today's networked world, communication alone fails to encompass modern branding. The discipline has grown into a complex ecosystem of experiences across time, media, products and environments. In response, marketing leaders, brand masters, designers and agency partners need work hand-in-hand to create brands that are dynamic, authentic and responsive to a changing world.
The session will provide the inside story behind the re-branding of one of the world's most admired brands, Starbucks, as an example of the role design and branding can play in clarifying an organizations future vision while refreshing both the customer experience and its visual expression. Committee members will walk away with a view of where design is headed and its larger impact on branding.
