Anonymous completed this course, spending 3 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
This course is a guide to how brand management works and how to make a (quite comprehensive) brand brief. It's oriented to marketing students/recent graduates or even entrepreneurs, but not necesarily to graphic designers since -excepting a few lessons- it's mostly marketing and organizational theory.
