  11. 12.

  12. 13. The Combination <ul><li>In our main product and ancillary texts we have the same design and name of the band. </li></ul><ul><li>The font can be identified and associated with the band. </li></ul><ul><li>In all ancillary texts we display the band so the audience can recognise them. </li></ul><ul><li>In all ancillary texts we establish the youthfulness, individuality and originality about the band which is aimed at the target audience. </li></ul>
