What’s In A Change?

As the new season change, we all change our clothes. Some people looking at their wardrobe and decide to change it entirely. But what about your brand’s identity? Do you know when is it time to make a change? Should it be a slight change or total redesign? While there are no specific rules on when or how to make a change there are few indicators it’s time to refresh.

  • Have you added new products or service offering? – it’s the perfect time to look again and reassess your brand’s identity to reflect your new offering while considering how it will fit with your line of products or services.
  • Is your marketing material out of date? Take a good a good look at the images: hairstyle, clothes, background objects are they current? How about the content, does it feel a bit outdated? Take a look at fonts, are they still represent your business style?
  • Has your company evolved? Then your brand should be too. Your brand should remind your customers that you are on the cutting edge of your industry.
