About This Session

Your brand strategy defines your goals and values as a company, and your brand identity brings that strategy to life visually. But how should these documents impact and inform the content you produce on a daily basis — both for marketing and internal comms? 

Join Paul Parkin, founder and creative director of Salt Branding, in conversation with visual communication thought leader Amy Balliett to learn how to create content that aligns with your brand strategy and stays true to your brand identity. 

You’ll walk away knowing: 

  • Why your brand needs a clearly defined strategy and identity that’s designed to meet your goals. 
  • When and why to adhere strictly to your brand identity, and when to create a unique art direction for your campaign.  
  • How to create a brand identity that anticipates almost all possible use cases.
