Every successful business has a distinct brand personality. It is crucial in attracting and keeping loyal customers who will interact with your content and remain loyal to your brand for years. Your brand identity includes various components, such as your brand name, logo, colors, shapes, and other visual elements you utilize, as well as the language you use to communicate with your target audience.


However, brand identity encompasses more than just a memorable logo or slogan. It stems from understanding your own identity, your target audience, and their needs. By doing so, you can establish emotional connections with consumers and ultimately drive sales by aligning with their values and beliefs.

A robust and memorable brand strategy and identity are crucial in showcasing your personality to potential customers. It establishes the overall vibe of your brand and ensures consistency in your messaging across all marketing materials. A strong brand identity can also set you apart from competitors, making you stand out and appealing to your target audience. The more consistent your brand development is, the more recognizable you will be to customers, leading to increased memorability, loyalty, and trust.


A strong brand identity, which includes a memorable logo that will stay in the minds of consumers, can significantly boost your business's revenue. For instance, Apple has been able to charge high prices for its products due to its iconic and simple logo, as well as its widespread global presence and popularity.


Currently, Apple's brand is estimated to be worth $241.2 billion and ranked first on Forbes' 2020 list of the World's Most Powerful Brands. Although Apple products are comparable in quality to other high-end technology brands, they are perceived as having a higher value by customers due to their strong and recognizable brand identity that is known globally.

Step 1: Analyse your market


One of the advantages of starting a new business in the modern world is that all the information you need is at your fingertips. Before even considering the details of your brand identity, diving into the big data to find those key insights and make statistically sound decisions is vital.

Step 3: Define your visual identity


The first thing potential customers will notice about your brand is the logo, colours, and design, so this is your chance to shine. A logo should be instantly recognisable, like the golden arches of McDonald's or the bat-wing cut of Levi’s jeans. Colours hold meaning too, with blue a consistent choice for tech companies and green the obvious choice for naturally sourced products.

At this stage, working with a professional team can help you narrow down your decision, and ensure that the final design you choose represents your brand. Whether dealing with ancient symbols of modern fonts, bold and bright designs or elegant, muted shades, our graphics team can

Step 4: Position your brand


The next step in branding your business is to position your brand in the minds of your customers. This involves effectively communicating how your brand sets itself apart from its competitors and why your product or service is the best on the market.


Effective brand positioning works in two key ways. First, you need to establish and define your brand's unique selling proposition. Businesses can achieve this through compelling statements or slogans such as Canvas, 'Empowering the world to design', or IKEA's 'To create a better everyday life for the many people. Then, you need to take that data from stage one and start to use it to inform how you will communicate with your target audience.


For example, GiffGaff describes their tone of voice as friendly, clear, simple, and fun. They come across as hip, modern, and trendy, using colloquial and slang terms to appeal to a younger UK audience, injecting a dash of British wit and charm into their messaging so that customers see them as trustworthy, reliable, reliable, and affordable mobile network providers.


In contrast, Harley-Davidson's brand voice is powerful and bold, embodying masculinity, confidence, and rebellion. With phrases like 'Resistance is futile' and 'Grab life by the bars,' this iconic motorcycle company subtly challenges consumers to demonstrate their ability to handle their rugged machines. This effectively appeals to their target audience – daring, adventurous risk-takers.

Once these steps have been established, it is time to develop a comprehensive brand book that can be shared with all stakeholders, including employees, shareholders, and customers.
