IP Beyond ID Leveraging Trade Dress to Enhance and Develop Brand

TOPIC OVERVIEW Trade dress of a product or a service is often overlooked in a company’s overall branding and trademark strategies. Sophisticated companies are using trade dress in ever expanding ways to establish brand recognition. Trade dress has been traditionally limited to product packaging such as the unique shape of the Coke bottle, but it has now become much broader and pervasive. Companies are developing unique building designs and restaurant layouts, integrating logos into product and store designs, establishing exclusive use of color in signage, ads and displays. Through examples and case studies, the presenters from Ziba Design and Stoel Rives LLP will describe what is happening in the marketplace and provide predictions of what may be in store for the future.

SPEAKER Jeremy Kaye Jeremy Kaye is a Creative Director at Ziba Design with extensive experience in global business strategy, design management, product development and brand marketing.
