Essentials of Visual Branding
There are a few elements that every visual brand should have, including the following:
– A simple colour palette consisting of one to three central colours and two or three secondary or background colours. Any more colours will make your visual brand too crowded and confusing. A reduced colour palette will help make your visual brand easy for customers to understand.
– A primary logo mark and word mark. Your logo may include the name of your company or may be a separate symbol that makes a visual paring with the name of your company. A word mark is an option tagline that can accompany your logo.
– A clear font. Fonts can be standard, such as Helvetica, or you can create your own custom font, but whatever you choose it’s important to make sure the name of your business and any associated text are clear and readable in a variety of sizes.
