  • Your logo design
  • Your tagline
  • Your brand colours
  • Your typography
  • Your visual style
  • Your brand voice

What Makes Branding so Crucial? Why Does Your Business Need a Brand Identity?

Tips for Creating a Powerful Brand Identity – Branding That Sells The Product/ Service Itself

It takes time and work to develop a great brand identity (Brand Reputation, Brand Consistency, Brand Guidelines, Brand Recognition, Brand Voice, Logo Development), but the results are worthwhile. We wish branding could have been perfected overnight like Papi’s favourite oats, but it doesn’t, so here are some Papi-Approved pointers to solidify your branding:

  • Define your brand first: Which values apply to your brand? What distinguishes your brand from the other brands in the same industry? When consumers engage with your brand’s touchpoints, what emotions do you want them to experience? You can begin creating your brand identity as soon as you have a solid grasp about what exactly do you want your brand to encapsulate.
  • Form a powerful visual brand: The typeface (fonts), colour scheme, and logo design all play a very significant role in curating your brand’s visual identity. Verify that they align with the personality and values of your brand.
  • Create a voice for your brand: Your communication style with customers is known as your brand voice. Every piece of marketing collateral you use, including your website and social media posts, should have the same style.
  • Maintain consistency: Maintaining consistency with your brand identity across all touchpoints is crucial. This entails applying a consistent brand voice, colour scheme, typeface, and logo to all of your communications with clients and marketing collateral.
