Visual elements in the brand identity—fonts, colors, logo or mark—work together to create an impression, a sense of your brand's personality, to visually define the brand. Over time they establish the direction and create a recognized style to communicate your brand's positioning.
Consistency carries the visual system from ads to online presentation, from mailers to signing, vehicle graphics to social media.
Your core statements of value, your promise to the buyer or end customer, are essential components of messaging architecture, also critical to brand positioning. Your messaging hierarchy is the baseline for all communications; the statement of what your company, product or service stand for; what's provided; what the customer/user can expect.
Brand positioning is verified and expressed by the brand identity design and messaging. These elements work together as the foundation for all marketing and as the visual and verbal brand.
Positioning creates clarity. It separates you from others in your category. It gives your audiences a reason to choose you. It appeals to the right people. It expresses your purpose, your "reason to be."
