The Incredible Potential of Brand Design in Carving a Persona for Your Brand
Imagine this. You own an apparel store. You aspire to be a luxury retail chain selling high-end clothes and accessories to movie stars and celebrities. You source the most opulent fabrics and talented fashion designers that make some stylish apparel to match your avant garde vision. But your store still looks like a budget-buy shop that has been decorated in the 1980s. Do you think you’d be able to make it big in the luxury fashion industry?
We at The Uncommons Design believe that Brand design is exactly like that store. If you put no thought into it, you will not be able make the right impression on your audience. No matter how great the quality of your product, without the right strategic branding, it’ll be much harder to get anywhere substantial because your target audience will not be able to identify with your image.

To understand with the help of iconic examples, let’s take the case study of Apple and Holiday Inn.
‘Apple Computers’ changed to ‘Apple Inc.’ and decided to go from a neighbourhood name to a global style icon. Along with their name, they changed their logo too and this helped them turn around consumer perception completely. Apple, as we all know, is known as one of the most stylish brands in the industry today.
Holiday Inn wanted to rebrand itself from a family hotel to a business hotel. The most effective thing the company did was to change its complete tone of brand design, making it look more business. By changing its logo, Holiday Inn could achieve its vision and change the audience’s perspective in a much smoother fashion.
Like Steve Forbes rightly said, ‘Branding is the single most important investment you make in your business’.
