Long ago the word “branding” was used as a way to tell one person cattle from another’s. Today the notion of branding has evolved and the word is used to explain the strategies used to make a product easily identifiable from the rest of the competing products on the market. Branding is the concept behind creating a unique identity for your business associated with the name, symbol, and design logo or even core values and mission statements of a company. Logically, rebranding is the process of change and is associated with the alterations and transformation of an already existing brand. The intention of rebranding is to create a new, more desirable brand in the eyes of customers. "When it is obvious that the goals cannot be reached, don't adjust the goals, adjust the action steps.“ - Eric Hoffer There is a long list of companies that have deviated from their original brand ideas and have successfully rebranded their products and services. Kentucky Fried Chicken decided to re-brand by changing their name to KFC and the look of their logo to reflect their change towards a healthier menu. Starbucks changed their logo on three different occasions in the recent years and has added some simple food items to their product line of coffee drinks in order to better serve their customer base and many more… We provide you an opportunity to play with some of the epitomic brands of the past, which had an aura around them but now are on its last legs, BRANDIt gives you an opportunity to give a new lease of life to these dead brands.
