From the Show

What’s in a name? As we know from Rob’s last visit to the show, a lot. Designing Brand Identity is a tried and true resource. As Rob notes of the title and scope of the book, “We need all of those words in their biggest sense.”

Sadly … Designing Brand Identity co-author Alina Wheeler passed away recently. AIGA Philadelphia set up a memorial scholarship in her name to honor her legacy.

What brand has made Rob smile recently? Rob is a big fan of the sparkling CBD beverage Recess. Why? “You can tell they have a lot of love for design and the name speaks to taking a break.”
