Kampanje welcomes you to Grand Hotel Oslo on February 8th for the Masterclass:
Branded Interactions and Living Brands – Creating digital experiences with personaility (Full-Day Seminar with Marco Spies)

Welcome to this unique opportunity to learn from and discuss with one of Europe's most acknowledged brand designers!

Websites, mobile apps, VR/AR applications and conversational interfaces: digital touchpoints are an integral part of current brand communication. Designing them coherently "on-brand“ faces companies and agencies with ever new challenges: Branded Interaction Design (BIxD) – the brand-defining design of digital products and services – goes far beyond visual design. Complex user experiences require methods to align the touchpoints and a workflow that closely integrates miscellaneous design technology disciplines and includes ongoing prototyping and testing.

The goal of Branded Interaction Design (BIxD) is to create a user-centred brand experience across the various touchpoints. In doing so, flexible, identity-creating design systems replace the classic logo-centred corporate design.
Marco Spies, author of the standard reading on digital branding, Branded Interactions, and CEO of Berlin-based design and innovation agency think moto guides you through the BIxD process - from discovering the business, brand and user requirements to developing digital products and services with a strong coherent brand personality. With case studies and exercises Marco will show you how to master this complex and multidisciplinary task and how to keep the needs of the user in mind as well as the personality of the brand. 

The seminar focuses on the Discover and Define phases of the process: the analysis and strategy of digital brand projects. It introduces participants to the concept of Living Brands and how to develop digital products and services with personality. 
Participants will learn:
  • the concept of Living Brands and how the role of brands has changed over time
  • know the Branded Interaction Design process with its steps DISCOVER_DEFINE_DESIGN_DELIVER_DISTRIBUTE
  • methods for requirements gathering and defining the brand and UX strategic foundations for a BIxD project
  • Work with the brand personality to create vivid brand experiences
The exercises will be in groups, participants can work on their own brand.

GOAL of the seminar
Creating a user-centric brand experience across a wide variety of brand touchpoints is what the seminar is all about. Brands must be alive, constantly changing. That’s why flexible, identity-creating design systems are replacing classic logo-centric corporate design. The spectrum of brand signatures to be designed continues to expand.

Marco Spies  shows how to tackle this complex, multidisciplinary task while keeping the needs of users in mind, as well as the personality of the brand and the overall corporate goals.
