Brand Design Conference 2018
21 and 22 September 2018
Extended submission deadline — 22 May, 2018
Acceptance notification — 25 June, 2018
Early bird registration deadline — 6 July, 2018
Conference dates — 21 & 22 Sept, 2018
The aim of this design-led conference is to establish a new forum for brand research and discussion, putting Design (both as a process and a humanist approach) at its core as one of the most relevant disciplines of branding itself. It is expected that inter and transdisciplinary aspects of design-led branding methods, approaches and experiences can be discussed.
The conference seeks mainly to focus on the vital and underrepresented role of Design theories and practices in Branding, unveiling Design’s potential to create brands and the wider impact of Design in Branding.
It will address the role of Design in brand-oriented innovation processes, the emerging forms of brand design practice, and the possible links between design researchers and practitioners to learn from each other, creating better opportunities for emerging designers.
The conference committee encourages the submission of extended abstracts within (but not limited to) the following topics:
— Brand democratization
— Designing brands for diversity and behaviour change
— Creativity processes and choices
— Human- or planet-centred brands
— Circular Brand Design
— Literacies, skill and competences of brand designers
— Designers' responsibilities
— Learning through brands; learning through designing
— Smart brands
— Recent graduates and industry gap
— Designed brands: formality and metrics
— Domain of meaning and mentifacts
— Methodological advancements of brand design
— Brand design innovation
— Designing brand experiences
— Intersections of brands and policies
— Cultural relevance of brands
— The Golden Circle of Brand design
— Brands and gamification
— Privacy, trustability and loyalty
— Brands geolocalisation and augmented reality
— Internet of Things, ubiquitous and wearable brands
— Artificially intelligent branding
— Brand design techniques dissemination
— Big brand data literacy/creativity
— Brand materiality and tangibility
A book of abstracts will be distributed at the conference and the major output will be either an edited book or a special issue in a design academic journal (negotiations are being made with international publishing houses), with a selection of relevant and practical contributions and with the authoritative views and shares of our keynote speakers to be published in 2019.
