What is a brand?

Nowadays you can hear people using word “BRAND” but it could be difficult to unders what does word brand actually means, and where it can be applied.
In TIE A TIE we believe that:

Brand is visual and emotional connection between company and customer.

Brand is expectations formed by visual product, story and experience. Imagine that a brand is a person – it has a story and it is exciting. You can not wait to hear it!

He can tell you and show you where he came from, and what he had experienced. You can easily describe how does he look, and how does he communicate when you meet and interact with him. But also, you can understand this person in a deeper level because you know his values, and know where he believes in and stand for.

Brand involves involves a story, visual appearance, language and experience.

So what is branding then?

Branding is a process of building consistent visual appearance, story, language, and experience. When a customer sees that all fits together and feels just right then the branding process is done well.

Consistency is the key to the great brand. Branding involves building a story, visual, language, and experience.
