About this Event

Level C start 2020 in the City of Angels. Give yourself a winter break that pays you back and levels you up: join us for the exclusive North American launch of our certification Masterclass 1 in branding at the LA studio of Chris Do and The Futur.

Kick off your new mastery of brand with a deep dive into modern brand-building disciplines, definitions, and methods. Masterclass 1 is a two-day hands-on workshop designed to give you a clear view of the entire brand chessboard, and the fundamentals to navigate the shift from marketing to mattering.

Own the five key disciplines of DIFFERENTIATION, COLLABORATION, INNOVATION, VALIDATION, and CULTIVATION by applying them in competitive hands-on exercises guided and critiqued by Marty Neumeier.

At the end of day two, you’ll take a 30-minute test to measure learning and mastery of content—pass the test, qualify for Masterclass 2, and earn the credential Certified Brand Specialist.

THE BRAND GAP by Marty Neumeier


Marty Neumeier is an international author, designer, and brand adviser committed to bringing the principles and processes of design to business. His series of “whiteboard” books have changed the way brand has brought business forward, including ZAG, named one of the “Top Hundred Business Books of All Time” and THE DESIGNFUL COMPANY, a bestselling guide to nonstop innovation.

His first and seminal book, THE BRAND GAP, has been consumed more than 23 million times. Its sequel, THE BRAND FLIP, has powered brand-building in the age of social media and customer dominance. And his most recent book, SCRAMBLE, has redefined what a business book can be as it explores how to build a brand quickly with agile strategy.

Marty founded Critique magazine, the first journal about design thinking. He has worked closely with the world’s most innovative companies, including Apple, Netscape, Sun Microsystems, HP, Adobe, Google, and Microsoft to help advance their brands and cultures.

Today, he is the Director of CEO Branding for Liquid Agency in Silicon Valley, travels around the world as a workshop leader and speaker on the topics of design, brand and innovation, and most recently is co-founder and partner of Level C.

Marty and his wife divide their time between California and France.
