Visual identification

Visual Identification

Nowadays most companies aim to provoke positive emotions and make professionalism related feelings. The goal of visual identification is to display the brand’s feature in such a way that it immediately recall the specific memories.
Identification should answer the question of how you want your business to be perceived. Its task is to illustrate the company’s history, highlight what is the most interesting. In this way, you will maintain continuity and harmony in all further decisions regarding promotional strategies. Recognition among clients, consistency of advertising activities and distinction among competitors are the most important advantages of using the visual identification system. 
Properly built brand image allows you to make the new audience interested, but also to build a long-term relationship with existing customers. Creating a coherent, transparent, interesting and unique logotype is a real challenge. The opinion about a given product or service is made by the potential client in the first few seconds based on the picture he sees.
Among other things, this is why the company’s logo is so important – it’s the most memorable visual element that your business is associated with. Based on the created system, awareness and brand identity are built, which is then memorised y customer. The likelihood of a customer choosing a company with a consistent and noticeable visual identity than the one with a completely unknown logotype is much larger.
As a rule, people are willing to trust a company whose name, logo or slogan they have seen or heard before. Just have a look at giants like Coca-Cola, Apple or Nike, which logotypes have become recognisable and saved in people’s memories.
Of course, one should remember that besides the logo there is a number of other visual materials representing the brand, which are contained in a specially prepared book of characters.

Book of characters

The so-called visual identification book represents the structure and dimensions (proportions) of individual graphic elements and the principles and know-how of how they can be applied in specific cases. The instructions and clues included help to use the given graphics to fit the appropriate form of an advertising.
The book allows to avoid fundamental mistakes and let employees to be consistent in a way they work and apply previously learnt rules.
While designing we aim to include the following:

• to be distinguished: to be noticed a company has to become unique in comparison with other competitors. To achieve this effect is best to generate particular feelings and connotations

• to be accurate: particular groups targetting. Fulfil their expectations and make them interested

• to be consistent: messages sent out by the company have to be well organized, connected with the company's identity, harmonized and complementary. Visual elements emphasize a word written, envision it, build reliability and trust. Inconsistent content usually created chaos and recipient's confusion therefore the company should be aware of that

• reputation: all mentioned elements above build the company prestige which then directly may increase costs

Logotype

Logo the basic element of the identification system, but also an important marketing tool. Using the tool, size, colour and form, it reflects the company's symbolism, values and company's vision. Its function is to ensure the company's brand gets memorized. Remember that the logo will be present in all other advertising materials therefore it should be simple, universal, unique, no-time constrained almost like an archetype and easy to remember. Its goal is to reflect the company's characteristics and the activity's profile. This method can significantly increase the trust and loyalty of customers and emphasize the brand's credibility.

The whole planning process, design and implementation of an identification system should be carried out consciously and be full of awareness. Both parties are required to ensure that the results are fully satisfactory. In Ad-visions, meetings with customers are carried out at every stage based on iterations. This can ensure every piece developed is double checked before going forward and increases customer satisfaction. All because we care about cooperation that will produce a long-term relationship. We provide a comprehensive and thorough service, paying attention to the company's specifics. We carefully design and make individual elements that make up the whole visual identity.

The advertising folder should contain all the information you provide to your partner during the meeting and later on to convince him even more to make a decision that is favourable to you.
