Designing Brands That Stick
Curating and cultivating your brand’s image is vital to its perception and popularity with consumers. Your brand’s image is its aura, encompassing everything from your logo to your omnichannel messaging.
In the modern, interconnected world of online reviews and informed consumers, branding is an important opportunity to develop trust with your audience. An impressive 86% of consumers prefer an authentic image that they feel portrays a brand in an honest, likable fashion .
Whether it’s your website, packaging or manifesto, nearly every aspect of your organization can fall under the umbrella of branding. To maintain a consistent, favorable image with your audience and customers, count on Coal Creative to hone your branding strategy and craft campaigns to achieve your business goals.
What is Branding, Exactly?
Your brand is your organization’s unique identity as perceived by consumers . Branding, thus, is a way to distinguish your products, services and organization from others and give it a distinct persona. It’s what makes you stand out and stay remembered.
Some key elements of branding have long included elements such as:
- Color palette
- Product design and packaging
- Jingles or slogans
In today’s digital age, however, a top-tier marketing agency such as Coal Creative pays attention to other key aspects of your brand’s image, including:
- Website design
- Online presence
- Social media presence
- Messaging across various channels
When crafting a branding strategy for your business or organization, it’s key to keep your image consistent across these different touchpoints. Customers can encounter your brand on a plethora of channels and, when they do, ingenious branding can make the difference between a scroll and a sale.
How to Craft a Memorable, Marketable Brand Image

Coal Creative: Masters of Bespoke Branding Across Every Industry
Creating a brand image takes vision, artistic aptitude and tact. Modern brands tell stories in order to connect with consumers and, at Coal, we craft compelling brand narratives for consumers to latch onto.
One common element for a brand to begin with is its logo. We offer bespoke logo design services that give your brand (whether budding or established) a recognizable insignia rooted in your values and design style.
A logo is a brand’s thumbprint. Consider Coal the ink pad.
We’ve crafted logos for businesses and projects like:
- Law firms
- Wine consultants
- Streaming series
- Municipal governments
- Social networks
- Live events
- Academic institutions
- Retail stores
One common thread runs through all the logos in these diverse spaces: each was carefully crafted to reflect the unique complexity of the brand it represents. With meticulously chosen colors, graphics and design elements, a well-thought-out logo has the power to tell your audience a lot about the brand before even entering the shop.
Coal does more than design lovable logos, however. We can plan, cater and execute every aspect of your organization’s branding, including elements such as:
- Brand development – Logos are just the beginning for Coal’s devoted brand development team. From print-outs to online presence, we custom craft what your business needs in your brand’s unique style. A consistent aesthetic with elements such as a trademark color palette helps increase your brand recognition—meaning more of your audience recognizes you at a glance from anywhere .
- Print design – Speaking of print-outs, we don’t stop there when it comes to activating your brand IRL. Once we establish your brand’s foundation through expert design emblems and elements, we take to the glossy page. Business cards, brochures, billboards, or even apparel—we’ll help you figure out where your brand can come to life to make an impact on your audience, and then we’ll make it so.
- Web design – Your website is the foremost space through which customers encounter your brand. Along with a functional flow that facilitates User Experience, your site should uphold the aesthetic design principles that define your brand. It should also contain key information such as blog and news posts, which are extremely salient ways of conveying your brand’s vision and values to your customers.
These aspects and more all contribute to the overall idea and perception of your brand. To ensure they all come together to effectively tell your story, team up with the bonafide branding boffins at Coal Creative.
