Protect and empower your brand through consistency
It doesn’t matter who you are or how long you have been around, everyone needs a set of brand guidelines to set the rules of engagement in every way they communicate. These guidelines are the thread that holds the public’s perception in place.
What are Brand Guidelines?
First and foremost, brand guidelines (or style guide, brand manual, or brand book) are the standards required to represent your branding correctly. Brand guidelines offer clear-cut rules for how your logo, colors, and messaging are represented to your audience. They tell the world what to expect from your branding.
Why are Brand Guidelines Important?
Guidelines put rules in place not to limit creativity, but to keep your brand identity consistent and recognisable. With brand guidelines in place, you can ensure your brand’s elements are used effectively. When elements in your brand are used in the correct way consistently, you can build a powerful and recognisable brand.
Create Value Through Brand Guidelines
For a brand to breed trust with your audience, every single touch point needs to have the same rules in place – people don’t buy products or services for no reason, they make buying decisions based on an emotive connection. This connection with your brand will determine their perception of value – an often-misunderstood word. Value could mean cheap or inexpensive to some; however, others will perceive it as what they get in return from you; does it make them feel good about themselves? Will the item last longer to generate them a better return on their investment? This is a personal decision that they alone will make.
