“Design is the silent ambassador of your brand.” (Paul Rand)


“Mass advertising can help build brands, but authenticity is what makes them last. If people believe they share values with a company, they will stay loyal to the brand.” (Howard Schultz)


“A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well.” (Jeff Bezos)


“Brand is just a perception, and perception will match reality over time. Sometimes it will be ahead, other times it will be behind. But brand is simply a collective impression some have about a product.” (Elon Musk)


“A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product or service over another.” (Seth Godin)


“Every advertisement should be thought of as a contribution to the complex symbol which is the brand image.” (David Ogilvy)

branding design quote


“Too many companies want their brands to reflect some idealised, perfected image of themselves. As a consequence, their brands acquire no texture, no character and no public trust.” (Richard Branson)


“Your brand is what other people say about you when you’re not in the room.” (Jeff Bezos)


“Branding adds spirit and a soul to what would otherwise be a robotic, automated, generic price-value proposition. If branding is ultimately about the creation of human meaning, it follows logically that it is the humans who must ultimately provide it.” (David Aaker)


“Brand is the holistic sum of customers’ experiences, composed of visual, tonal and behavioral brand components, many of which are shaped by interaction design.” (Kate Kaplan)

“When it comes to building brand awareness for my company, the method that’s worked best has been content marketing. Although it involves a lot of work, and it takes six months to a year for it to be effective, it’s been proven to provide the biggest bang for the buck.” (Neil Patel)


“Brand: Is not logo, not what it looks like when I look at your product. A Brand is a shortcut, it’s a shortcut for all the expectations I have for what you’re about to do for me. It’s a shortcut for trust, for promises, for conversations. A brand that’s worth something, is worth something either because you can sell more of it, or make more of a profit for each one you sell. That’s it. If you can’t sell more, or can’t get a premium, you don’t have a brand. Cause people aren’t showing up investing their emotion in what it is you sell.” (Seth Godin)


“Brand identity fuels recognition, amplifies differentiation and makes big ideas and meaning accessible. Brands are messengers of trust. Customers are reassured by brands that are recognizable and familiar. Great brand strategy is a basic building block of good business strategy. We build industry-leading brands with coherent and authentic messages. We utilize cohesive branding tools, connecting with your customers in a clear and impactful way.” (Alina Wheeler)


“Your brand is a gateway to your true work. You know you are here to do something – to create something or help others in some way. The question is, how can you set up your life and work so that you can do it? The answer lies in your brand. When you create a compelling brand you attract people who want the promise of your brand – which you deliver.” (Dave Buck)


“If you don’t give the market the story to talk about, they’ll define your brand’s story for you.” (David Brier)

branding design quote

“It takes 20 years to build a reputation and five minutes to ruin it. If you think about that, you’ll do things differently.” (Warren Buffett)


“Identities are the beginning of everything. They are how something is recognized and understood. What could be better than that?” (Paula Scher)


“Overall, because branding is about creating and sustaining trust it means delivering on promises. The best and most successful brands are completely coherent. Every aspect of what they do and what they are reinforces everything else.” (Wally Olins)


“You too are a brand. Whether you know it or not. Whether you like it or not.” (Marc Ecko)


“Define what your brand stands for, its core values and tone of voice, and then communicate consistently in those terms.” (Simon Mainwaring)
