We hope to see you at the next meeting of the Inventors’ Association of St. Louis — Thursday, December 7, 2017!
At this meeting, IASL is proud to host keynote speaker Rob Leuschke, a St. Louis-based and internationally-recognized graphic artist. In Rob’s in-depth presentation, he will explain the nuances of leveraging graphic design techniques to launch your brand and help bring your new product to market.
A strong branding strategy is one of the most important aspects to putting a positive public face behind your new product.
Find out what translates to success and what to avoid in a marketing strategy that introduces your product to the public. Rob has over 30 years of experience working with businesses large and small, including a number of new inventions unveiled to the public. Listen and watch as he discusses in a fun and dynamic way, the “Do’s and Don’ts” you’ll need to know with respect to the graphic design & branding of your intellectual property. Learn methods of invoking an emotional connection through the visual identity of your product.
Whether starting out the process of bringing a new invention to market, or continuing the promotion of your product, you WILL NOT want to miss miss this fun and educational presentation!
Please note that this meeting will be at a NEW LOCATION! See Details Below.
