When users think of a brand, the first thing that comes to mind is the logo or symbol that characterizes it. And then, those concepts begin to emerge that everyone internalizes about the company based on the experience or information we have about it (values, mission, objectives..)

In this way, we can say that image is a very important part and it is necessary to take into account the visual branding in your business.

 

Visual branding is an essential element for any brand or company, whether small, medium or large.

 

What is Branding?

First of all, we want to emphasize the difference in branding and visual identity of the brand. Because, they are two terms that are usually used as synonyms but the truth is that they are not.

To achieve a solid business, you need to build branding and an identity that is strong and consistent. It's not just about creating a logo.

Therefore, we can say in summary that:

  • Branding: are the actions carried out by a brand to create a certain image. You could say it's an experience. The development of this is based on: mission, values, visions and the voice of the company.
  • Visual brand identity: it's about what you see and appreciate about a company. This is where colours, logos, typographies, graphic elements, etc. come into play.

 

How to define the visual brand identity?

In order to build a consistent brand or corporate identity you must work in an orderly fashion. Here are some of the key aspects that you must take into account to define the visual identity of your company:

  • Brand image
  • Business definition
  • Characteristics of the product or service
  • Target market
  • Vision, values and mission of the brand

What elements form the visual identity?

visual branding

In order to establish and define a good visual branding strategy, it is necessary to develop and create a brand manual. This will be the guide where the rules to be applied by the brand are gathered, in relation to the aesthetic specifications of the design of all corporate materials.

Basically, it's about having defined the guidelines in a clear and concise way of how the company wants to transmit its visual or corporate identity.

Therefore, there are a number of elements that must be taken into account and paid special attention:

  • The logo and its distinctive features.
  • The brand's official typeface.
  • The communicative tone of it.
  • The most representative colour palette.

 

An image can convey the message you need at a glance.

Consistent visual branding approach across all channels -Templates

Social networks are the perfect channel to transmit both your brand identity and to make your products or services known. That's why we believe that images are a decisive factor in getting across the values you want to convey.

The best thing is to create and define a style of templates with which you can unify all the image of the company and use them for:

  • Promote Blog post
  • Disseminate events in person or online (webinar, courses ..)
  • Share motivational phrases
  • Share tips, guides, advice
  • To publicize new projects
  • Etc..

The truth is, in the Social Networks care must be taken with both content and images. Because, images in social media define what you are and want to convey to followers visually.
