Meet the course author :)

Hello Briefbox! I'm Danny Osborne, Creative Director of UK brand 286. Working as a Creative Director for over 12 years, I started out working for various agencies and after a side project of my own took off, I went full time on 286, topping things up with select freelance projects.

I've put together a completely guided brief set based on my experience of working for various clients in the music, arts and culture industries. The aim is to give you complete, portfolio ready projects to show off to potential clients.

What you get :)

  • 5 detailed practice branding projects to complete in a suggested time frame of 5 weeks

  • 1.5 days to complete each brief, learn in your own time at your own pace

  • 100's of design process screens from the course author with step-by-step guidance throughout

  • Join the Briefbox community and get full access to all student project boards

Project preview: Music Festival Brand Identity

For every brief included, Danny will show you exactly how he approaches initial research, mood-boarding, sketching, type and colour experimentation. He then outlines clearly how his finished project delivers against the client's brief.
