BRAND VISUAL IDENTITY
The visual identity of a company (or service) is the set of elements that articulate its visual environment. It is part of the disciplines framed in branding. Its mission is to establish a system for the identification of the brand by its users.
It is usually composed of a logo (logo), which is the minimum visual unit needed to represent a company or service. A style guide, where aspects such as brand colors, typefaces, reductions or safeguard spaces are defined, among many others. And a user guide that includes the graphic solution to apply the brand in different media and contexts where it is represented: documentation, online media, packaging (packaging), interior and exterior signage, vehicles, external media (posters, billboards, mupis , etc.) or any other support that the company uses.
Visual identity is essential, not only because it establishes a homogeneous communication system that allows its users to identify it, in addition, it materializes each of the messages that the company sends to its consumers. It is the vehicle through which it expresses and communicates.
METHODS OF CREATING
Graphic design & Corporate Branding
The creation of a visual identity is a collaborative process between the company that demands the visual development of its brand and the agency, study or freelance that materializes it.
In the earliest phase of the project, all possible information is collected: history, the context of the company or service, competitors, and users. The customer is the absolute protagonist in this phase since he is the best connoisseur of the product, company, or service.
With the information obtained in the previous process, strategic proposals are made and possible solutions are planned. The objectives, the personality of the brand, the tone of communication, and other aesthetic considerations are defined: the visual aroma or the color palettes to explore.
In the third phase, the visual concept is created that supports the decisions made in the second phase, the visual identity is designed and the visual universe of the brand is built, paying the maximum possible attention to each of the elements that make it up. It depends on this that the brand is visually consistent, a basic premise in the construction of visual identities. Then, in the implementation phase, use and style guides and deliverables are prepared.
