Anchoring your Brand
Brand identity is what I do. I love working with brands, whether it’s to create a new brand or adjust an existing one. Good branding should make your company stand out from its competitors, whilst also communicating the character of your company. With this in mind I aim to:
Brand Identity is the visual devices used within a company. This includes all marketing materials, from brochures and leaflets, through to invoices and packaging. Usually these are controlled by a set of brand guidelines that dictate how they look. Essentially, acting like an anchor, keeping all marketing materials and visual devices consistent and coherent. Ultimately this allows a common perception of your company to build.
Basic Brand Guidelines
Brand Identity packages usually include a Logo Design. A great deal of time is spent creating a logo that will inspire trust, convey professionalism and communicate business values.
Selected colours create an appropriate scheme to suit your brand, its values and goals. These are supplied to you within the Brand Guidelines as Hex, RGB and CMYK.
Even the font is carefully considered. These selected fonts are accompanied by rules that stipulate the font weight and colours, whilst also indicating when and where to use them.
Final designs are supplied in several formats to allow for maximum usability. For example, a scalable vector format is used to create the logo. Whereas the final branding guidelines will be supplied as a useful PDF document.
If a more in-depth Brand Identity is required please let me know. My belief is that your brand should work hard for you and if this requires extended usage guidelines or extra graphics as part of the package, then it can be added.
Our Brand Guidelines
Planning for Branding
The way in which a Brand Identity is delivered across all of your marketing material makes a huge difference. Brand Guidelines should help you to manage and protect a brand. We aim to create brand identities that do exactly that. This is achieved by listening carefully and researching diligently before we start to create. Getting the brand identity right in the first place can save a lot of time (and pain) in the future.
Heres a quick run through the process for you:
What’s your Story?
When creating a brand identity I try to keep it real, due to an idealised image not being a relatable one. First of all, Certo Design focus on why your company began and with what intensions. Furthermore, I use these core values to help build an instantly recognisable and memorable brand that will stand out from your competition.
