Building a Brand Identity Entirely from Scratch

Terry McMahon, Creative Director at Red Frog Events

Red Frog launched four new brands in 2014 alone (it’s worth mentioning that one is called The Great American Bacon Festival)—so it’s safe to say they know what they’re doing

In this class, Terry McMahon explains what goes into creating a brand identity at Red Frog—and how they keep brands fresh as the market, audience, and events themselves evolve.

He walks through the difference between building a brand in a new market and a competitive one, before going step by step through the team’s process to create a brand identity for Big Barrel Music Festival.
