Audiobrain Reflects On Successful Sonic Branding Workshop with Project Osmosis

April 24, 2019

The Audiobrain team had a blast at this year’s FUSE conference. In addition to providing branded audio for this year’s event, we listened to many fantastic speakers and heard cutting-edge design ideas. The biggest highlight for us was our sonic branding workshop with Project Osmosis. Audiobrain has always supported and advocated for music education so this was a great opportunity to teach the next generation of designers about the importance of sound in modern branding.

Design students had some fun remixing one of Audiobrain’s award-winning brand themes to explore how instrumentation affects brand messaging and the expression of sonic identity. The Audiobrain team really enjoyed sharing our craft with these young designers!

Audiobrain Founder and Executive Producer Audrey Arbeeny was interviewed by Dan Madinabeita, Head of Brand and Design at Informa on his podcast series FUSE Calls. In each episode of FUSE Calls, Dan speaks with “disruptive design and brand strategy leaders across the globe.”

Dan and Audrey spoke about her background in music therapy, her study of psychoacoustics and biomusicology, her experience in helping shape narratives as a music supervisor for nine Olympic broadcasts on NBC, and why sonic branding is more important than ever in a “sound-first era.”

Dan and Audrey also discussed her passion for music education. Audiobrain is excited to kick off FUSE 2019 by partnering with Project Osmosis to lead a sonic branding workshop for the 2019 FUSE Scholars, the next generation of designers.

Audiobrain has been a proud sponsor of FUSE since 2011, and are excited to once again design the sonic identity for FUSE 2019. This year’s conference “Brand, Design, & Business: A New Unity” will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement.
