A 1,600 word critical essay.
For this assignment you are required to critically appraise an existing brand.
You are asked to select and focus on a brand that you feel could benefit from some development. The choices could be from different design disciplines, eg: product design, packaging, store design, or service. Through marketplace observation and desk research you are required to develop a competitive brand profile for presentation and discussion in your written assignment. The purpose of this exercise is to develop evaluative skills in assessment, whilst identifying opportunities for the development of the brand.
Examine this brand in more detail – are there any missed opportunities? Are there other mediums such as space, online, logo, colour, senses etc. that could be explored for this brand? Take the brand through a ‘real-life’ simulation of a change management programme considering and the essential roles that strategists, project managers and agencies/designers would perform. Include a brief that you would give to a consultant in order to carry out this improvement work.
