Visual Branding

Wed, Apr 1, 12:00 PM - 12:40 PM

+Dustin W. Stout  back by Zapster request. Brand recognition is a powerful way to get visitors and future customers to connect with your business. Create a visually simple logo, so simple a six-year-old can draw it. Choose colors that reflect your target market's needs. Use a type font that is easy to read. How does color enhance your brand? What message do you want to send and how do you use color to send that message. With Dustin in his red shirt, the conversation is lively and involved.
