如何说服你方客户需要一个品牌形象并不是一个标志?

向客户解释你应该被雇佣来发现一个品牌概念,这可以成为所有公司的品牌的基础(甚至是他们将来的商业决定)。一个标识只是一个表达式,一个可能形成品牌基础的整体方法。这一想法可能已经成为企业的特征,并将使品牌变得非常著名。

指出你的客户喜欢其他牌子的品牌元素,不仅仅是标识。一些品牌优良的企业可以通过他们的颜色、字体、图片、插图、甚至文案风格来鉴别,或(更普遍的是)这些精心挑选的元素组合。努力指出其深层次的想法会决定所有其他的品牌因素。
客户的成功就是你的成功。将过程出售给你的客户,一个你能够指引他们,并一起决定一个品牌识别的解决办法的过程。这会帮助你建立长期的客户关系。如果给了他们好的想法,他们会找你的来进一步深化品牌概念。

避免提到“标识”,宁可谈论“品牌印记”。用“品牌印记”替换“标识”。这将帮助您和您的客户考虑品牌的整体体验和而不仅仅是商标。商标只是意味深长的在上下文,并且应该看他们增加价值到那上下文。标识不大可能单独为商业增加充足的价值。标识最好使用在商标系统上成为一个独特的品牌体验。

避免标识的华丽炫耀。不要仅仅仅使用将标识; 标识通常是抽象想法的表现。显示商标想法怎么与品牌体验相联系。显示一个概念怎样在其他情况下使用,而不是固定的形式。想法越好,他就越独特,越有适应性,你就可以收取越高的费用。只献身于设计标识的设计师是没有价值的,而做品牌识别的设计师提供更多的价值也能更好的吸引他们的客户。


原文:

The following advice has been excerpted from the May/June 2010 issue of Layers Magazine, and was written by brand identity designer Andrew Sabatier.


How to convince your clients they need a brand and not just a logo

Explain that you should be employed to find a brand idea that will form the basis of all the company’s branding (and perhaps even future business decisions) of which a logo should only be one expression, an idea that is likely to form the basis of a the brand’s overall approach. Such an idea may already be a defining characteristic of the business waiting to be celebrated in the branding.

Point out other brands your client admires that can be identified by branding elements that are not the logo. Some well-branded businesses can be identified by their color, typeface, photographic, illustration, or even copywriting style alone, or (more commonly) a carefully selected combination of these elements. Try to point out the underlying idea that determines all these other brand elements.

Your client’s success is your success. Sell a process to your client; a process you’ll guide them through and that will enable you to decide on a brand identity solution together. This will help you to establish a long-term relationship with your client. If you deliver good ideas they will be more likely to consult you again to develop the brand ideas even further.

Avoid references to the word “logo,” rather talk about the marks of a brand of which there should be a primary “brand mark” (two words). Replace “logo” with “brandmark” (one word). This will help you and your client to think about the overall experience of the brand and not just the logo in isolation. Logos are only meaningful in context and they should be seen to add value to that context. It is unlikely that a logo alone will be able to add sufficient value to a business. Logos are best employed in a system of brand marks that determine a unique brand experience.

Avoid logo beauty parades. Don’t only show different logos; logos are usually abstract expressions of an idea. Show how the logo idea relates to other brand expressions of the same idea. Show how an idea works in other situations, not just on stationary. The better the idea, the more unique, adaptable, and valuable it will be, and the higher the fees you can justifiably charge. Dedicated logo designers are a dime a dozen whereas brand identity designers offer far more value and often dramatically improve business for their clients.


What do you think?

I’m sure Andrew would love to know what you think of his advice. I would, too.
