Branded Interaction Design

Katja Wenger & Marco Spies

Designing coherent digital touchpoints in the sense of a brand presents companies and agencies with ever new challenges: The brand-compatible development of interactive applications goes far beyond visual design - complex user experience designs require a workflow that closely interlinks conception, design and development and includes consistent prototyping and testing.

The Outcome.

Objective of the seminar

The goal of Branded Interaction Design is to create a user-centric brand experience across multiple brand contact points. Brands must be alive, constantly changing. This is why flexible, identity-creating design systems are replacing the classic logo-centered corporate design. The spectrum of brand signatures to be designed is expanding. The workshop shows how to master the complex and multidisciplinary task and how to keep an eye on the needs of the users as well as on the personality of the brand.

All participants are asked to bring a face mask and of course we will comply with the hygiene and distance rules on site.
