Tips on how to build brand awareness:

2. Brand design and brand identity

Before approaching a branding agency to create designs, you need to have a think about the assets that build up your brand. Start with the basic design structure which will act as the building blocks or foundation of your identity. These design assets should build up from brand colours, logo, typography and fonts, design system, photography, illustration, iconography, interactive elements and web design. The best way to keep your brand design consistent along the whole brand is by creating brand guidelines and following these for everything.

3. Strong messaging

The best brand identities make a visual impact. In addition, these brands also create brand awareness, for example, Apple’s logo is memorable, and Coca-Cola’s colours. You are selling your brand as well as products and services. Your identity will evolve and grow over time but every element needs to be cohesive across your brand.
