In challenging times, it's important to think big picture. Branding advice from the experts.

S1 E1 | In the Design Lounge with guests Russell Borne, Nathanael Chown, and Rachel Topping

Cheers to BRANDING! Let’s talk about image from a business standpoint: How are individuals and their companies perceived within their industries and by their desired clientele? During a pandemic and rogue economy, is rebranding necessary, or are consumers comforted by familiarity?

In this episode of In the Design Lounge, virtual guests Russell Borne of Adidas; Nathanael Chown of Chown Hardware and Rachel Topping of 19th & Park join host Brandon Gaston to discuss the best (and worst) in current branding practices, and relay advice on how to move your brand gracefully through the pandemic while planning for the future - all over a favorite cocktail and a few fun surprises!
