Innovative Design Solutions and Brands are Inseparable
The visual revolution is catching fire. Pinterest can take much of the credit for sparking the change as websites are changing their layouts to showcase photos rather than text and Facebook converts to Timeline to be more visual. Now, even more so than in the past, having innovative design solutions for your brand is vitally important.
Consider a company’s logo. Yes, this depiction serves as an ID for a business, but it is not a “brand.” Branding stems from a feeling that consumers have with the company itself. Consumers encounter this feeling through experiences that have all been enhanced by design. As you can see, brands and designs are forever intertwined, as one cannot exist without the other.
Award winning design comes from those who understand a brand, its company culture, values and history. Designers must have an emotional connection to a brand in order to develop designs that convey that sense of attachment and comfort to consumers. A strategic element also comes into play when creating or enhancing brand identity. If there is no strategy, a brand can be lost. Simplicity and honesty reign true in creating designs that stand out and have an impact on people. Overdesigning is a sign of insecurity. Having well thought out, authentic creative is crucial.
