12:00 pm - 3:00 pm Designing Momentum: How alignment can build customer loyalty and engagement

Bryan Taylor - Founder, Creative Director, Drawn

Great ideas are meant to turn into great products, services, and experiences, but quite often something happens along the way — they become watered down, turn into a collection of parts, and fail to meet the goals they were intended to accomplish. As we mature our design practices, it is important to understand how well our ideas translate into momentum, and whether they win over customer loyalty and deepen our engagement with them. This workshop will explore how alignment can build momentum; we’ll share stories, concepts, and techniques that create efficiency, loyalty, and customer engagement. 

  • Designing from the inside out, and evaluating from the outside in
  • Exploring ways to build and maintain alignment, from ideation to execution
  • Hear how Stories to Be Told™ can help deliverables accomplish their original goals
  • Hear short case studies, including Siete Family Foods quick rise to a $400M brand
