This is a project a colleague and I worked on in a graduate class for marketing. After reading a short case study, we were asked to develop an integrated marketing communications plan to launch a business. All branding, marketing collateral and ROMI has been created specifically by us, for this project. We worked efficiently as a team and obtained an A grade on this project.
