Roberto de Vicq and Douglas Riccardi will give participants an opportunity to explore the world of food and hospitality branding. This intensive workshop will marry theory and practice — while developing a concept, analyzing competition, devising a treatment, logo, and palette and designing menus and collateral materials, students will also hear best practices and insights gathered through the instructors’ many years of work in this field.

    Required Materials

  • Laptop with Adobe Suite
  • an extension cord
  • Sketchpad and pencils, eraser, sharpener

Field trips are also planned which will allow for further informal discussion both with the instructors as well as other participants.
