Branding and Product Design: An Integrated Perspective

03-01-2013 03:46 PM CET | Business, Economy, Finances, Banking & Insurance

Press release from: Gower Publishing Ltd

Branding and design are moving closer together. Despite the strong link between famous brands and the products sold under their name, there is still a gap in understanding the relationship between product design and brand-building - Monika Hestad plugs that gap.

Branding and Product Design examines how winning brands appear to be more creative and authentic than less successful ones. The book provides tools to help understand the role of products in building a brand and guidelines for how to bring branding and product design processes together. There are case studies based on the author's research, her years of teaching, and her own practice. Interviews delivering an 'insider' perspective on major brands bring abstract concepts to life.

This is a book for design practitioners, marketers and others working with designers and for those teaching and studying at the intersection between design and branding.

March 2013 Hardback 184 pages ISBN 978-1-4094-4626-2
Price £45.00/US$79.95
