A destination brand is the set of tangible and intangible that define a location. Put another way, it's your name, your logo, your typography, your colors, but also your personality, your sounds, your smells, tastes and everything that defines and gives you value.

Collect all this in a graphic identity is hard work that fascinates Studio A, a consulting branding Peruvian with more than 40 years of experience creating meaningful brands that generate value.

In this course you will create the branding of a target brand, from the concept to the execution, taking as an example the one that Studio A created for the Peruvian region of Ayacucho.
