BENEFITS OF A BRAND IDENTITY

THREE C’s OF BRANDING

A brand can take many forms from a name, symbol, color palette or even a slogan. Brand Identity affects the personality of a product, company or service and reflects a perception of your business. Essentially, your brand helps to shape your identity. These perceptions can be controlled by consistent visual communication and design elements. A clear identity creates a framework to promote or present your business.

A brand has to be nurtured, it takes time, thought and consistent application. But it does not have to take big budgets. It is a process that requires both discipline & passion and caring for the big picture & the small detail.

CREDIBILITY A credible brand will always align the way a business behaves with the way it is portrayed. This close connection will ensure that your customer’s instinctive reaction is one of trust and belief in your brand not one of doubt and uncertainty. Through this trust becomes brand Loyalty where consumers become more trustworthy of products & services.

REASONS TO BRAND

YOUR BUSINESS

&PROCESS

CLARITY A strong brand is based on clearly defined values that are important to your customers and that differentiate you from your competitors. A clear understanding of these values throughout your business will ensure that they are communicated clearly through everything you say and everything you do. Clarity comes through by creating common elements in a marketing strategy so consumers can distension and retain brand information.

COMMAND PREMIUM

CONSISTENCY Brand Identity is something that’s different from a logo but, unfortunately is commonly mistaken as one. An identity is something that encompasses a culmination of all the visual and non-visual elements that make up a company or business. Everything from a name to a logo, business cards, website design, packaging or even in-store experiences. It encompasses the entire experience as a whole.

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE

The value of a brand comes through recognition and recognition comes from consistent application of every visible manifestation of your brand, at every ‘touch point’ that your customers experience. Through a brand standard of logo and design elements (colour, font, texture, imagery and power words) consumers will come to remember, retain and share your brand. If consistency is lost your brand will become forgettable.
