Today we will talk with you about starting a new business and positioning through the production brand identity. The first impression, or how not to lose your customer. Brand identity - it's something that we see every day on the signs and shelves, on the streets and on television, everything with which we associate the brand, presenting image in your mind. Corporate identity - all the external attributes faced consumers or partners of the company, is the main distinctive feature, a unique "face" of the brand.
Building an effective brand identity - is to create an effective tool which will help to achieve representation of the brand in the creation of the target audience. Therefore, creating an effective brand identity always begins with the development of the brand ideology \ storytelling, as the work on the formation of the outer appearance of the brand can’t begin without the knowledge and understanding of the essence of the brand, its distinctive characteristics and values of the main promises of the consumer, the brand mission, and legends.
Brand identity includes a large number of items related to each other. One of the key elements - the brand logo. No logo is actually almost impossible to bring to market, as the company logo must be present everywhere: on your business cards, letterhead, envelopes, product packaging, promotional materials, etc.
Brand logo, as a rule, consists of a unique font solutions combined with an icon - a graphic representation of meaning, reflecting the essence of the brand ideology. The main task of the logo is simple - it's a relief recognition and brand recall. Consumers can forget the name, but the picture and the associated image will be a long time in their memory.
Logo is a link in the preparation of the corporate identity of the brand. Corporate identity is a unified design system, color combinations and images for all forms and methods of brand communication: advertising, business documents, Office design, product packaging, etc. For example, if a video is created without taking into account the corporate identity, the consumer does not associate advertising with the product that he sees in the store, so the effect of such advertising will be null.
