What is branding and visual identity?
Branding is the foundation of every engagement with your customers and target markets, guiding your marketing activities and ultimately delivering the best experience for your customers.
Your brand is what defines your business and explains why you exist and how you act. It is the thing that people remember about you. It’s more than just a visual identity, it should invoke emotion, portray a reason for existing and communicate a belief. It is made up of many things such as a value proposition, character traits, tone of voice, values and a visual identity amongst others. These are the fundamental building blocks of your brand architecture.
A visual identity is the representation of that architecture. It is the visual aspect of branding that businesses create in order to evoke the right feelings and experiences within the brand. These are important things that are vital to get right in order to promote and market your business, significantly enhance your reputation and ultimately gain greater competitive advantage.
So why is branding & visual identity so important for your business?
Effective branding can promote recognition for your business. If your brand is consistent and easy to recognise and remember, it can help people feel more at ease making decisions to engage with you.
Your brand also sets you apart from your competition. It is crucial to stand out from the crowd across the whole market landscape that’s becoming increasingly more competitive. Your brand can also create referrals, people like talking about the brands they like and they received a good experience from. Therefore ensuring your brand delivers this great experience is extremely important. Lastly your brand sets expectations. If you want customers to know exactly what to expect each time they encounter your brand you need a strong consistent brand and visual identity.
