Start with a Brand Strategy


The first step in creating and defining your brand identity is to develop a brand strategy. Your brand strategy should clearly define your brand's mission, values, and personality. This will serve as a foundation for all of your branding efforts. Your brand strategy should also take into consideration your target audience, competition, and market trends.

It's crucial to create a consistent visual identity that's easily recognizable by your customers. This consistency will help strengthen your brand and make it more memorable.


Use Print Marketing to Create Brand Awareness


Print marketing is a powerful way to create brand awareness. From business cards to brochures to billboards, print marketing materials serve as a tangible representation of your brand. Make sure that all of your print marketing materials are consistent with your brand strategy and visual identity. This consistency will help reinforce your brand and increase its recognition among your target audience.


Use Graphic Design to Create a Strong Online Presence


As a business owner, you know that a strong online presence is essential in today's digital age. Graphic design plays a crucial role in creating a website, social media profiles, and digital advertising that reflects your brand's personality.

All in all...

A Note From the Author

As a business owner, brand strategist, and graphic designer I run in to questions and ideas every day.

As the owner of Norris Design, I started out wanting to solely be a designer, but education changed the way I thought, the way I viewed business and the way I viewed my role in helping other's businesses.  

Graphic design will always be my original love, but as I grew in knowledge, I realized the small view of design for the sake of something beautiful was such a disservice to businesses.

Businesses needed much more than just graphic design.  They needed to see the bigger picture of their businesses from the perspective of a designer.  Once I realized that branding had a huge role in large businesses that see amazing success but very few small businesses even think about branding or brand strategy, I realized that if I could offer a brand strategy view as a consultant rather than just an order taker graphic designer, I could actually move the needle in their businesses.

This is the beginning of where I started to fall in love with business, marketing, branding, brand strategy, consulting and brand building. 

It all started with education after college.

I obsessively read articles, listened to podcasts, watched videos, read books, and took classes.  This was to fulfill this desire to be more involved in the businesses side of design rather than just design alone.

So, this is why I wright. I appreciate other people's perspective and I hope that one day, mine can help someone else.
