A logo cannot, and should not, deliver a brand’s entire message. But it can convey a personality, help enhance a feeling of connection and begin to tell a brand’s story. Your brand strategy and personality will often dictate whether your brand calls for a simple wordmark or lettermark logo, a more conceptual icon mark, an emblem mark or a combination.
To enhance a logo design and further visualize a Performance Brand, we use digital design boards. These boards act as a testing ground for exploring type and color, iconography for both digital channels and physical spaces, brand graphics, business card designs, various digital templates, photography styles and more. This lets us show what’s working best in its appropriate digital context and make a solid recommendation on a digital-first brand identity.
While you want the sky to be the limit for your Performance Brand, there has to be a limit to the way your digital brand identity is used. With brand guidelines, your company will be set up for success with some firm yet flexible guardrails. What to do and not do with your logo, tone of voice, fonts, iconography, primary and secondary color palettes and more. Think of it as “rules of encouragement” that inspire the best use of your brand identity.
This is your brand’s bible. An amalgamation of your brand platform, brand messaging, visual identity and brand guidelines is one stunning storytelling collection of words, images, designs and inspiration. Anyone who opens this book will instantly know what your brand stands for, understand its personality, promise and perspective. We create both digital and physical versions, so you can easily share it, but also touch it, feel it and embrace it as a tangible guiding light for your company and brand.
A brand mantra video is your brand platform translated into an emotionally compelling, engaging video that announces your brand purpose to the world and inspires and aligns your internal teams. We believe a brand mantra video is at the core of every Performance Brand, and no company’s website should be without one. Remember, when people feel more and associate more, they click more, visit more, shop more and buy more.
