What It's About:
There are places you encounter in your life that feel special, authentic and memorable. This doesn’t just happen by chance. Thoughtful branding and placemaking is what really differentiates these spaces. That starts with an emotional North Star that informs and inspires design decisions—leading to a sense of place that people can feel as well as see. It affects everything from the business plan, to the site plan, to the streetscapes, to the architecture, to the sales brochure—making everything better and more meaningful. In this town hall session, the panelists will share examples, discuss lessons learned and present tips for creating emotive brands that inspire physical designs that leave a lasting impression.
What You'll Learn:
Discover the value of branding as a design catalyst rather than a design capstone.
Learn what it takes to create a true sense of place that evokes an emotional response.
Identify new ways to differentiate your next project from the competition.
