Description: A website is the online equivalent to a company’s headquarters. And every variable – from color to typeface to images – conveys their brand values and experience. In this course, students will learn the criteria for evaluating how an organization projects its brand promise online. They will examine questions like, “Is the brand voice consistent” and “Does it reflect their values and expectations?” From there, they will apply tools that reinforce brand unity across various online mediums. The course is taught through video lectures.
