Join the incredible Fashion Marketing Summer School in Coventry. The intensive two-week course will introduce you to the core principles of marketing a fashion brand. By the end of the course you will have created a basic visual identity for a fashion brand, a rationale and a promo video.

The programme will include principles and practices of branding and fashion marketing, working with the necessary image editing and manipulation, copy writing, sound, storyboarding techniques and software for making a short video in the time available.

The course's emphasis is on marketing, on identifying and understanding a brand's product, core values and marketable potential. This is complemented by a rough-cut, four-second video which aims to help students to summarise and communicate complex and abstract ideas to a diverse and unpredictable audience.

Sessions will be a mix of lecture-style presentations, discussions and practical workshops. Content will include:

  • How a brand is conceived and created
  • How brands thrive and survive
  • Turning a product into a brand
  • Turning a brand into a must-have
  • Defining a brand for marketing
  • Getting the best out of an identity
  • Articulating and defending an approach
  • Images, sound and words
  • Storyboarding
  • Software techniques

The programme will also include social and cultural visits for all to participate in and to explore your surroundings with new friends from all around the world.
