Flex instructors are regularly brought in to help students develop a taste for the varied processes that go into professional design practices. I shared a project with students in which they works on a project whose goal was to develop a competitive strategy and branding that would position Seattle's Best Coffee into the Baltimore marketplace using varied media elements within their choosing, but supported by reasonable rationale that could be carried through a campaign. The project was derived from one that I had been assigned.
