Brand Exploration & Strategy

Brand is the principle base for everything moving forward. It will determine your brand voice, brand image, and overall brand identity. Establishing a clear visual brand to be used across all integrated marketing channels is critical to ensure that all tactics are executed correctly. A unified visual brand and brand messaging prepares all future marketing tactics to be cohesive and harmonize with one another.

Brand Messaging Standards

A critical component of the brand development process is the creation of a Brand Messaging Standards Guide. The purpose of this guidebook is to organize and formalize all brand messaging elements into a single rulebook for all stakeholders, employees, and members of the community. We use a structure for our brand messaging guide process, which includes mission and vision statements, a brand promise, important marketing statements, taglines, core elements of your tangible services, and value statements about the purpose of your organization.

Brand Graphic Standards

As the messaging guide is focused on language guidelines, a graphic standards guide outlines the proper usage of these visual brand elements. Proper usage guidelines include scale, proportions, competing elements, color formulas, and font formats. This standards guide ensures that all elements of your brand are applied to marketing materials correctly. It’s also a valuable tool to communicate a company’s brand standards when collaborating with other outside organizations.

Brand Identity & Logo Design

Your brand identity really represents the overall “persona” you want your brand to have. Included within this identity is the logo–your visual identity. True Creative has years of experience designing logo identities and understands the concept of designing for target audiences and how they perceive a brand. Based on our experience and given the variety of digital and print tactics available in today’s technological world, logo designs need to be clean, clear, and streamlined for use in a broad range of sizes and applications. We approach every logo design with these logistical considerations.
