Why is Branding Important
So you've started a business and needed to pick a name. Anyone who's ever had to choose a band name or decide on the name for your child knows how daunting, challenging and permanent this can be. Following the name comes a logo, colors, letterhead and business cards. Oh, that's called Branding, right?
So what is Branding? It's simple... Everything!

When your color scheme, fonts, logo, business cards, letterhead, office design and advertising all work together, you're business will thrive and produce. On the contrary, when these items are not firing on all cylinders, your business will suffer.

Think about companies in your neighborhood that you see and recognize their logo and colors everywhere you look. Without even particularly knowing what they do or what service they offer, you've had their business engraved in your mind. This will massively increase your chance of choosing them when you eventually need service in their industry.
