NOTE: After determining the long-term strategic idea for your brand, it is creatively expressed through a document that establishes brand rules for the presentation and communication of a brand to the public.

 

Two forms of this document can be created. A full brand strategy with visual identity guidelines is called a Brand Book. Without visual identity guidelines, the document is called a Messaging Guide. Both documents are guidelines important for ensuring that a brand is treated consistently by all designers, marketers, and other staff who create any branded materials. 

 

Once a full or partial brand strategy is created, VCM Strategies can help you activate your brand strategy with the support of trusted marketing partners who can continue to bring your brand to life.
