Master Classes with Danny Kreeft

Danny Kreeft | Designer | May 3 and 19, 2022

Brands as Ecosystems | May 3, 2022 | 5:30 pm

The holistic nature of what constitutes a brand can be seen as a biological ecosystem. A multichannel network of connections and interactions. A simultaneous presence on various platforms, to create a consistent experience across touchpoints, applications, and devices, with interconnecting narratives and messages that move from one tool to another.

Brands and Stories | May 19, 2022 | 5:30 pm

We have been telling stories for centuries. We find it easier to remember information that is structured by means of a causal connection. Companies tell us their “brand story”. Unlike books with lineair plots, brand stories evolve over time and are (visually) expressed through many channels. Wherever people encounter a piece of the narrative they should be able to enter the story’s flow and experience the brand through it.
