What is Corporate Branding?
We have all identified a brand on the street without reading its name. Maybe it was a fast-food chain, grocery store, or clothing line that you just casually passed by or saw their logo and immediately recognized. We recognize these brands and their logos thanks to successful corporate branding campaigns they launched in the past!
Corporate Branding involves establishing a coherent and robust image that can represent a company’s identity, forming a brand that is recognizable and memorable. It includes logos, merchandise, color palettes, themes, or even interior design assets. It is distributed both externally for the public and internally for the employees, helping to shape a strong and consistent brand awareness.
Corporate Branding is more than creating an eye-catching logo. It's about representing the company's identity and professionalism through visual aspects. Corporate branding assets need to reflect the brand's purpose, mission, operation, target audience, and overall message to help to strengthen distinct brand identity.
Why Corporate Branding?
In the era of increasing competition and declining attention span, corporate branding is crucial to capture immediate attention and recruit loyal customers.
Create a Strong Identity
Our brains process visuals faster than texts, so having consistent branding throughout is the faster way to communicate with the general public. It instantly grabs people's attention and leaves them curious about the brand behind the logo.
Having a memorable first impression is a critical competitive advantage in the digital age. It establishes strong brand identity, helping you communicate your business message and shape the public's perception of who you are.
Create a Sense of Trust
Trust is the most challenging element to establish between a brand and its audience. People tend to trust friends and relatives more than corporations. To generate trust, brands need to connect with their audience on a personal level, and having consistent corporate branding is one of the steps to achieve that goal. It represents and strengthens the brand's persona and value, making them more profound and recognizable by like-minded individuals.
Elements of a Successful Corporate Branding Plan
For a brand to be easily recognizable and memorable, the corporate branding plan needs to emphasize consistency. All of the visual representations, such as logo, website design, or merchandise, need to follow a consistent theme throughout, forming a strong impression of a brand. Consistency needs to be maintained not only with the public but also with stakeholders and internal employees to create a profound brand image and strengthen professionalism.
More than visuals, branding is also about showcasing consistent messages and values, so all design assets also need to be aligned with the mission, purpose, and function of the company, so that the represented identity is more profound.
Companies with unique branding usually capture consumer attention easier by standing out from the crowd with dynamic visuals. It is essential to look back at the initial brand identity and value to differentiate yourself from others to be original among millions of online and offline competitors.
Ask questions about how others identify your brand: Is it fun and creative? Is it minimalistic? What value does the brand emphasize?
Recognizing those small identifiers can collectively produce a visual branding package that reflects your unique identity. "A picture is worth a thousand words," so invest in the story you can tell behind every branding asset to establish authenticity and individuality.
