  5. The importance of telling brand stories —

    We usually try to avoid using industry clichés and buzzwords, however, one which we came across recently seemed to resonate with us. ‘Storytelling’, or the idea at least, of telling the whole story of a brand, product or service through not just a logo, but a variety of brand touch points whether that be print, screen or environment. Creating lasting, relevant and impactful brand identities is like writing the introduction to a good book. You lay a solid foundation with the logo or marque itself but then build in a variety of chapters which help tell the whole story through the use of specific visual assets such as typography, pattern, colour, texture, audio, video etc.

    Your logo is the most visible representation of your business, product or service, but it requires support, and a variety of considered, sub plots which, when applied strategically together, work to successfully tell your brand’s story over time. These assets allow the life of a brand to evolve and more importantly adapt to their constantly changing environments. It’s not just how good a designer you are but, more importantly, how good a storyteller you are that will define the success of your clients brands and indeed your studios output.

If you love street art then you’ll have to visit the Howard Griffin Gallery in Shoreditch - The gallery is hosting a solo exhibition by prominent street muralist Phlegm - Like his other work the exhibition (called ‘The Bestiary’) provides a complete sense of magical escapism whilst juxtaposed in an everyday context.
