In this free PaperSpecs webinar sponsored by VMA Storyboard, Dava Guthmiller, creative director of Noise 13, will share the creative processes and tools she and her team have used to help build Uber’s global brand.

Palo Alto, California – September 17, 2014 – Building connections. It’s become the bedrock of branding and marketing, and some design and branding studios seem to know just how to use the available media (print, digital, collateral) in simple, effective and fresh ways.

PaperSpecs free Webinar, Brand Secrets Behind Uber’s Global Drive, will explore the creative ways that one highly effective design and branding team uses print, alongside other media, to get their clients noticed in an increasingly digitally connected world.

“I asked Dava Guthmiller, founder of Noise 13 (San Francisco, California), to lead Brand Secrets Behind Uber’s Global Drive because she’s doing very interesting work with Uber, a ridesharing service founded in 2009 that’s grown to serve more than 70 cities in 45 countries,” says Sabine Lenz, founder of PaperSpecs. “That’s the kind of design and brand building that’s worth a closer look.”

Guest Speakers
Dava Guthmiller has honed her creative skills and is recognized today as an expert in brand strategy. For consumer brands like Uber, she believes success is defined by two fundamental principles.

“There are two key components to building a unique and lasting brand: Life and Style. We’ve made it our mission to first understand our client’s market and their customers, and then create a unique brand style that fits into the daily lives of those customers. It’s about helping our clients to stand out in the market and to create relationships with their customers,” says Guthmiller.
