I had a very nice time Tuesday night speaking about branding to a local networking group. I was the third speaker and a good place to be as I was able to bring it all together in to the importance of the Visual presentation and follow through for your branding direction no matter if you are branding a company, product, or book.
It was a lively evening with Libby Gill starting off the evening with asking each person in the group what their branding needs were and giving suggestions. Then on to Gail Lara sharing her experience with the book she is currently in process with. Then to me, ending the evening on the note of design importance.
Very much enjoyed the evening. Thank you Robin and Made in the Valley.
