“THINK MORE MAKE LESS”
It is important to understand what brand and branding is. Logo is a design term for a trademark. It can be a monogram or symbol. A trademark is not the brand itself. We need to learn the context of branding.
Branding is about decor, graphics, customer experience, staff, product, logo, messaging, packaging signage and website.
Brand identity is the collection of all elements that a company creates to portray the right image to its consumer.
Brand is the perception of the company in the eyes of the world.
Who you are as a brand is made up of a few key elements:
- Your mission
- Your values (what beliefs drive your company?)
- Your brand personality ( what kind of personality does your brand have?)
- Your unique trait
- Your brand voice ( how will your brand communicate with its clients?)
LOOK at the brand, observe their attributes and list down the most important ones. They represent the core of the brand.
