The terms "brand" and logo" are often used interchangeably. But though a logo can be the symbol of a business, it is not the entirety of a brand. In fact, creating a logo is just one small step toward developing a strong brand identity.

With millions, if not billions, of businesses trying to make a name for themselves, having a strong brand has become crucial for businesses to differentiate themselves from their competitors.

If you're working to develop your first brand identity for a client, or you're doing this for your own business, it's important to first understand what a brand is and what it takes to create one. Unfortunately, it's not as easy as giving the business a name and plastering it on everything.

Originally, the term "brand" was used for referring to the mark that cattle ranchers "branded" on their cattle, the idea of a brand has evolved to encompass much more than just a name or a symbol.

Your brand, a vital part of your brand identity, is defined as a name or a type of product manufactured by a particular business.

What is brand identity?
A brand identity is made up of what your brand says, what your values are, how you communicate your product, and what you want people to feel when they interact it. Essentially, your brand identity is the personality of your business and a promise to your customers.

As Jeff Bezos says, "Branding is what people say about you when you're not in the room."

Your product leaves an impression on your customers long after you've made the sale. Brand identity is the process of shaping that impression.

Strong Brand Identity Examples

 


When you hear the name Coca-Cola, you probably picture its well-known logo, shown above.

But you also might think of the polar bear, the color red, its "Share a Coke" campaign, or the classic ribbon-like imagery featured on its cans. Here are two things that comprise Coca-Cola's brand identity:

Coca-Cola's brand identity begins with a red logo in script text. The red color elicits confidence in the person who drinks a Coke, while the script typeface is all about enjoyment. Coffee, for example, is a drink you have before work in the morning. Coca-Cola is a drink you enjoy when you're done in the afternoon. This is the brand's "face."
Coca-Cola prints its logo on a uniquely shaped bottle (it's true, no other beverages have bottles exactly like it). This tells customers they're not getting an imitation -- this is the real thing. The brand develops credibility and trust this way.
