Integrated Brand Experience (IBX)
What is IBX?
As machines do more work and algorithms produce more interactions and create content, brands must tell more empathetic human stories.
At Orange Academy, we call this the IBX, Integrated brand experience. We know machines are limited in their ability to understand emotions, tell stories, and connect with humans on a one-on-one basis.
Integrated refers to the cohesive alignment of the brand across all customer interactions. The brand culture and its unique story permeates the customer experience across touchpoints, including advertising, packaging, digital interactions, website design, etc.
IBX teaches you how to create a detailed plan that outlines how these will be delivered across all channels and interactions.
This program will teach you, test you, and stretch your creativity. You will be happy and sad; at times, you will fight humans and the unseen voices in your head.
However, if you can go through the six missions of IBX, you will look back at your journey, buy yourself some bọ̀lè and peanuts, and down them with some cold La Casera and say: I did it! Ready?
Meet The Six IBX Missions
- Mission One: Market Research and Problem Definition
- Mission Two: Brand Story and Design
- Mission Three: PR and Go-To-Market Strategy
- Mission Four: Advertising and Creatives

- Mission Six: Social Cause and Personal Branding
How you earn your IBX, 100%
Orange coursework is divided into LOGIC and MAGIC
MAGIC signifies your creative thinking hat. We define creativity as the ability to make connections between existing ideas in a way that is original and useful.
- How you use your imagination
- How you see things in new ways
- How you tell compelling stories
- How to compose images
MAGIC = 30 marks
LOGIC signifies your strategic thinking hat
- How you organize your thoughts
- How you use numbers and data
- How you present your thoughts
- How you show understanding of problems
- How you clarify things so others can understand
LOGIC = 20 marks
Finally, you score for your collaborative work with others. Orange believes no meaningful creative work can be done in the brand marketing communications industry without collaborating with others.
GROUP WORK = 50 marks
We aim to be as inclusive as possible, however the following are standard entry requirements for IBX:
