As one of Cheshire’s leading branding agencies, we love creating new brands and evolving existing ones. As part of our branding service, we create brand guidelines for you and your key stakeholders to follow.
Brand guidelines define the key elements or ‘assets’ of a brand’s identity, for example, your company logo, typography, and imagery, and document the principal rules surrounding the incorporation or ‘use’ of these assets, for example, the spacing requirements for a logo.
They detail instructions that must be followed to achieve a congruent, consistent brand identity across all touchpoints; the ‘dos’, ‘do nots’, and ideal scenarios.
A consistent brand identity helps to develop a strong brand image by providing clarity for customers/employees, communicating professionalism, and building trust. It can be difficult to maintain a consistent, up-to-date brand identity, particularly when there are multiple stakeholders involved in the production, management, and distribution of marketing and sale’ materials. This is where brand guidelines can help.
Brand guidelines are the ‘master’ guidelines. They can be distributed to all internal and external stakeholders for reference, to ensure a coherent and consistent brand identity across all touchpoints.
