  • 1. MUM!I’ve made a brand!
  • 2. ( ) You’ve got a brand have you? Then how come out of the million of brands, consumers only properly engage with a small handfull?
  • 3. THIS IS A PICTURE OF NICK CLEGG BY THE WAY Is it possible you can be well known and still not have a brand?
  • 4. You may have a visual identity but do you really have a brand? VISUAL IDENTITY VS BRAND
  • 5. Don’t worry Nick - at least we recognise you. IT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN RECOGNITION VS EMOTIONAL ATTATCHMENT.
  • 6. Visual identity can deliver recognition. Brand can deliver intelligent meaning and emotional connection. NB: If you’ve got a recognisable, asthetically beautiful and unique visual identity then you should be quite chuffed... but not so chuffed if you paid for a brand and that’s all you got.

  • 16. YES. NO. If ‘yes’ then (belated) congratulations. If ‘no’ then there’s work to be done.
  • 17. It’s not difficult - just ask them. MAYBE IT’S TIME TO DISCOVER WHAT YOUR CUSTOMERS AND PROSPECTS FEEL ABOUT YOUR BRAND
