This Brand Strategy course is divided into modules. The first module of this course will examine brand strategy from a customer based brand equity perspective. Students should be able to define and analyse the key elements that goes into creating a brand. They will also be able to critique the use of different elements of marketing in creating, maintaining and developing brand resonance with consumers.
The second module of the course will discuss the role of brand narratives and brand imagery as a key tool of brand strategy. Students will consider the role of place and space in branding, and describe how experiential marketing can be used as part of a brand strategy. Finally students will design and create their own brand narrative through a film or video.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- Identify the elements of the CBBE model;
- Describe how a brand can be positioned;
- Critically appraise the relationship of brand narratives and imagery with brand resonance;
- Analyse the effectiveness of brand experiences;
- Produce a CBBE brand audit taking into account theoretical advances, managerial practices and ethical considerations; and
- Design a film or video that could be used as a brand narrative or imagery.
Work Integrated Learning
Brand Imagery Video
The Brand Imagery Video assignment involves making a video on a list of topics to be provided on Wattle. This may include critically analysing the current imagery of a real-life brand, then creating and justifying revised imagery to support a given challenge or opportunity (e.g., reposition, expand segments, modernise). Or telling a story about a brand experience a student has undertaken, with a particular emphasis on experiences in Canberra such as Enlighten, which occurs early in the semester.
This assignment involves assessing the customer based brand equity of a real-life brand from a list provided on Wattle, and then suggesting creative ways, such as designing new brand imagery, to leverage that equity. Students can use the brand they did for the video item for this item as well, and as such can use that content as a reference for this item.
It will be a requirement that students consider the ethical, social, cultural and other impacts on brands since the start of COVID. Students will also be required to upload a video summary of their work.
