It seems that some people have started to believe that a brand is simply a logo, and that their business will be just fine if they just have a logo to wear.
This couldn’t be further from the truth. A logo is a part of a business’s brand. But, it’s only one small part.
Going out into the world with just a logo is like going out in public wearing only a teeny, tiny t-shirt. It’s the stuff that nightmares are made of – you’re pantsless!
How embarrassing. You start to get cold… people are staring… and you certainly don’t want to think about sitting down.
On top of that, you don’t know what motivated you to leave the house less-than-half-dressed in the first place.
Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a full outfit? Even better, wouldn’t it be great to have a full outfit that looks great on you, fits you perfectly, and makes people stare for all of the right reasons?
That’s where the rest of your brand wardrobe comes to the rescue. It, too, needs to:
- Look great on you. A business’s wardrobe should contain a full set of gorgeously designed materials. Every piece should look stunning and compliment the other pieces in your brand wardrobe.
- Fit your business perfectly. Your brand should be designed to fit your business’s vision, mission, values and personality. Discover the statement you want your business to make, and then tailor your brand to show off every curve.
- Make people stare. Your brand should appeal to your ideal clients, so that they’ll be attracted to your business. To do this, take their desires and preferences into account when you’re developing your brand.
