Branding / Graphic Design

Graphic designer, Knysna Garden Route. To create a brand for a company is to create not just a logo but their image and to promote that image with campaigns and visuals. Working in branding allows a graphic designer to get involved with many aspects of the industry, from logo design to advertising to copywriting and slogans.

The goal of a brand is to make a company unique and recognizable and to project the desired image that the company wishes to portray. Over time, a brand can make a company a household name and be identifiable by a simple shape or color.

To create a logo and a brand for a company, a designer needs to fully understand the goals of the organization and the industry as a whole. This research and base knowledge can be used to work with designs to create the appropriate materials to represent that company. I work on logo design and branding for clients in the Garden Route, Cape Town, George and Knysna.

As a graphic designer working in branding, my graphic design requires a broader focus as I may not simply be designing websites or brochures, but instead working on an entire campaign and ensuring the consistent message reaches the various media.

Design elements of a branding campaign:
