Here's the presentation deck from session #06 of the Copywriting class for Fall 09 at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. Today we talked about the Voice of a Brand, and our guest speaker, Sheldon Clay, helped us illuminate the subject with his expertise and history with Harley-Davidson. MANY OF THE WORDS AND IMAGES in this deck are clickable, so you can learn more about that item or see the work in a larger size elsewhere. This presentation is ©2009 by Tim Brunelle.
