Branding That Goes BANG, POW, and WOW
Creating a compelling brand is more critical than ever before. Visual branding takes the reasons your business exists and subtly communicates them to your potential customers. Your visual brand is another significant opportunity to share and connect with your audience.
Without brand guidelines, marketing strategies quickly fall apart. That’s because consistency is the most crucial factor in any effective brand strategy.
Brand guidelines are living documents that change alongside your marketing and sales goals. Bnd while these guidelines are prone to change over time, they also allow you to lock in specific visual, strategic, and philosophical ideas about what your brand is at its core.
Brand Guidelines includes:
History, mission, and core values
Logo usage guidance
Color palette codes
Voice, tone, grammar
Images and photography usage
Marketing collateral design (business cards, letterheads, etc.)
Logos, Typography, Color Palletes
Visual brand elements, like your logo, typography, and colors, should be memorable and meaningful. Your brand elements should land somewhere in the middle of the unique and meaningful spectrum.

The road to the perfect brand design is rarely a straight one. The right ideas can take time to discover as the project evolves and matures. And that’s why Kaboom uses an iterative design approach to all brand design projects.
The iterative Design Process:
1. Data and Discovery
A The Data and Discovery stage is where we ask questions, collect more information about your business, and begin to chart out creative directions that align with the project’s parameters.
2. Sketching Directions
Once we have a few promising directions, we begin to loosely sketch ideas that bring those directions to life. When you’re pleased with a particular approach, we move to typography and color.
3. Type and Color
The type and color stage brings the branding concept to life, differentiating it from your competition.
4. Digital Deliver
After your brand’s big idea is captured in a logo, typography, and color direction, it’s time to finalize and digitize your visual brand for the world to see.
