The Holy Grail of Branding.
When designing a brand identity for any brand, but especially a consumer brand, we look to develop visual brand assets than can become instantly recognizable to their loyal fans. These assets allow a brand to be creative in what it does across many communication touch points including some unlikely merchandise.
Case in point; iconic U.S. Burger Chain In-N-Out have just launched a range of kicks bearing the branding visual asset of their soft drink and shake cup. This type of merchandise (often in a limited release) has a way of snowballing the brand’s cool credential.
What are your brand’s visual assets and how can you best leverage them to build awareness and category cred?
