Not just a logo
To dispel a common misconception, a logo is not the brand. Imagine being handed a fabulous looking book, opening it up and there is nothing inside - what a waste of a lovely cover design! It would be like having a logo with nothing to support it. A company brand is the message it is giving to its customers. Once the core values are established, then the brand can be built which INCLUDES the logo, strategy, people, visual presentation, tone of voice, style of photography, font usage etc etc. These need to remain consistent across all platforms used such as websites, advertising campaigns, exhibitions, premises and marketing material. We all want our logo to represent our brand instantly, and this is something that doesn’t happen overnight, so be patient, persistent and on-brand!
