Corporate Branding and Brand Compliance

From building to maintaining a corporate brand

Building a brand

Anyone who’s been involved with building a brand knows it’s a resource-intensive investment. Corporate branding, in particular, entails creating a brand for a corporate entity, which has a far broader scope than branding for a single product or service.

An effective brand strategy will consider everything from logo design to typeface to company tone of voice in communication material. Cohesive and complementary brand elements together will create an engaging, successful corporate branding identity.

The most brand equity usually comes from corporate branding, so it’s important to have a clear brand message and a visually consistent corporate identity at every consumer touchpoint.

Maintaining brand compliance

While consumer brand awareness is important, classic corporate brand definitions often overlook the significance of internal brand consistency as well. Employees utilizing the correct brand elements in all internal and external communications is a critical part of maintaining a brand image.

The importance of brand consistency across your company website, social media channels, ads etc., is usually well known by employees and the branding teams that manage them. However, brand compliance in company content such as documents, presentations, and emails can be neglected throughout large organizations.

Consistently staying engaged with your corporate brand and how both internal and external audiences recognize it is a critical part of maintaining your brand and continuing to get the most brand value.
