Branding (10 sessions x 3 hours)

Branding is a critical factor for any business. Building a strong brand helps a business to establish good standing and growth in the market place as positive physical and emotional cues are built around the uniqueness of the brand. Branding is more than designing a logo. It is the identity that comes with it. This course allows learners to understand the fundamentals of branding such as building a brand image and identity. Learners will learn how to develop and create a brand as well as identify the important elements that govern the identity of the brand, including ensuring consistency through various applications. The use of visual design elements in creating a brand will also be covered.

Digital Publication (10 sessions x 3 hours)

In today's digital age, information is always readily available. The increased use of mobile, tablet and other such digital devices has led traditional media such as print to be adapted and extended to a new distribution channel – the digital interactive platform. In this course, learners will be taught how to transform static print media into formats that are suitable for viewing on interactive platforms.

Applicants must be 17 years old and above.
