what is Visual brand identity?

Your brand is so much more than just your logo. It's your company's DNA.​

A company’s brand are all of the pieces that make your company instantly recognizable. It’s the visual pieces like your logo, colors, and fonts, but it’s also your company messaging. A clear and cohesive brand identity for your Durham Business is essential for building connections with your customers. At Carrboro Creative is a branding company that builds brands that connect. Our brands standout against the competition and sell more. Period. 

we use clear messaging and brand story to connect to your customers as a durham Company

If you're not connecting with your customer on a deeper level, you will lose sales.

It’s not enough to tell your customer what you do. If you’re just listing your services, you’re missing out on an opportunity to connect with your customer through your brand story. Your brand story tells your customer that you understand their problem and are here to help. 

A story can be broken up into five parts. There is a character (1) who has a problem (2), then meets an advisor (3), who helps them solve that problem (4) and reach their happy ending (5). From a business perspective, the character is your customer (1). Your customers have some type of problem (2) and are coming to your business, the advisor (3) for help. As a business, you over them a solution (4) that helps them achieve their happy ending (5).

Our brains are wired to understand stories, so using your messaging through this framework is a proven way of increasing your sales.
