"What do you mean logo vs brand? Isn’t that the same thing?" That might be a general perception but logo and brand are actually not the same thing.
Logo is a graphic element - a symbol or icon, text or all of these combined - that represents your brand and makes it recognizable across all your marketing channels. Logo is a visual mark that should capture the essence of your brand. Yet - although very central - a logo is only a part of something bigger, that is your brand.
Brand on the other hand is so much more, it is a holistic perspective and experience. Brand is an entire and complex collection of elements that create that experience and emotional connection with your audience, these elements are:
~ Your business vision, purpose & values
~ What does your business do/ your product and/or service
~ Your business personality & voice, how you communicate with your audience
~ Visual identity that is your brand colour palette, fonts, logo, patterns, illustrations - all that creates consistent and cohesive visual experience and recognition
In other words, a brand is what represents a business and gives its logo a meaning.
It is crucial to understand the difference and see that logo design itself does not equal a strong brand and business. That’s why branding - a strategic process of brand design - is such an important and rewarding investment in your business.
