✘ The customers become loyal to a brand if they share the
same values and want to be a part of its community. The
brand can be trustworthy, luxury, passionate, tasty, fun,
innovative, caring, professional, or safe, depending on how
the company positions it in front of the audience.
✘ What is Branding, and why is it so important?
According to the Cambridge Dictionary,
branding is the act of connecting a product
with a particular name, symbol or with
particular features or ideas, in order to
make people recognize it.
Companies may sell a similar product or
service, but depending on their branding,
they will attract different loyal customers
who will feel connected to their brands.

style guide. Keep a simple document with the most
important points. Here’s an example of brand:

your target audience. With the right brand
message, you can inspire and persuade
your target audience to buy from you or use
✘ Apple - Think different.
✘ Walmart - Save money. Live better.
✘ Coca-Cola - Taste the Feeling.
✘ Mercedes-Benz - The best or nothing.
✘ Your company logo is a symbol which is associated
with your company as part of your brand identity.

bitten apple or a mermaid?
✘ One of the important things to consider while designing
a logo is the places where you are going to use it.
Obviously, it will be sizes, and colors, on different
backgrounds and promo materials. Be sure to make it
simple and flexible enough.

brand identity, as it’s built not only on
visual elements but also texts. With the
right chosen typography, you can have a
more lasting impact on your audience.

headlines, the line spacing and
Branding builds trust within the
marketplace and stakeholders

✘ It’s a fact that the consumers are interested
not only in product features but also in
what they will get from buying that

other competitors, then the brand will stand
out from the competitors and will obtain
✘ in a world of wide choices and opportunities, it’s hard
for a company to climb to the top and become a
necessity. Especially, when you have a few seconds to
catch the attention of our audience. Building a strong
brand gives you a chance to become a part of the
consumers’ lives, something they can’t live without.
✘ In this article, we defined what branding is, which are
important parts of branding, and why it is so important
for your company. Look at the examples of the top
brands and learn from their success and failures.
