Concepts & Branding

What is Branding?

Branding is essentially the unique quality of a service, product or person. It’s what makes them stand out and makes them special. It’s what makes them different and is the reason you choose them.

Like a person, branding has a unique voice, personality, appearance and style. No two people are exactly the same and no two brands are the same. The brand promise is the commitment (what the service, product or person reliably does for you, the customer) and the brand logo is the person’s name and face (what they’re called and how you recognise them).

Branding is not only the logo, or look and feel of a company; it’s the customer’s experience of the company (how they feel when they use your product or service, what connects them to your brand).

At “page-space-design”, we are committed to enhancing and providing original creative ideas to help promote your business.

We are an ideas company. Along with your brief, we develop ideas and formulate concepts into a brand that works for you.

The brand is what sets your organisation apart. It is what makes your company unique. A brand must consider what your company does, why it does it, its values and who your competitors are.

Even an entrenched and well known brand needs to stay relevant. Brands get taken for granted or neglected just like people. How is your brand perceived? Is it still as you originally thought it would be? Perhaps it is time to renew it, or to revitalise your brand? Maybe an assessment is needed?

If it is a new brand, then a process of discovery is used to derive a style that is the best fit for your organisation. We can help you with your brand discovery.

Deriving a new concept for a brand takes creativity. We relish these types of creative challenges.

So if you are renewing your brand or just starting out - we can help you with that.

Design for Digital page space design design for digital mobile cell smart phone image

We design digital assets; these could be logos, icons for websites or for mobile apps. We design and build complete websites.

Websites

Your website is more than an online brochure. A professionally designed and developed site starts with the goals of your organisation and your website has to serve these goals.

A website is the online face of your company. For people that have never seen or heard of your organisation before, your website is their first view of your company.

A website needs to be easy to use on your laptop and mobile-friendly on your smartphone or tablet.

Does your website work on mobile?

Make sure it's mobile friendly...

What does mobile-friendly mean?

Key points:

  • Text is clearly visible without zooming in.

  • Finger-friendly controls, such as buttons & links are sized and spaced out properly for finger taps.

  • Content and images are set up for the screen size.

The key takeaway is that a mobile-friendly site has to be designed that way from the start.

Let us get you started - contact us.

The look of your site, the ease of use and the content, forms the impression that people get of your company. Is this the impression that you want to give? We can help you create the impression you want.

Is your company online, does it have a website? If it has a website - does the site work well on a cell phone?

In South Africa smart phones and tablets are used more than laptops or desktops to browse the internet. If your website is not set up to accommodate these mobile devices, then your web page won’t be easy to use on these devices and this may frustrate your potential customers.

Compare these two screenshots below:

page space design responsive design sample mobile designed web site mobile friendly smartphone layout

Which one of these websites has been setup to accommodate mobile devices?

The screen with a centered logo and a large grey menu button is mobile-friendly.

The other screen has not considered mobile devices. The mobile browser has taken the desktop layout and made it "fit" into the smaller mobile screen width. Lets call it the "shrunk" screen width problem on mobiles.

This "shrunk" screen causes issues like the tiny navigation buttons. This forces the user to zoom into them which will annoy the user who is trying to move around the website.

We build websites that work across different screen sizes - this is the goal of "responsive design": to get your website working easily on different devices – from mobile, tablet to laptop or desktop.

A logo establishes your company's identity; the name and face of your business.

A logo is made up of either text only or a distinguishing symbol / icon and text design.

We can create a unique logo for you, that gets used consistently; for all your marketing assets, whether print or digital.

Icons

Icons are key elements of visual company branding on your website or mobile app. Distinctive icons create the complete look to get your brand noticed. Get ahead of the competition by using a one-of-a-kind icon set for your business.

Let us customise a distinct icon set for your business.

Other digital assets

Technical Drawings (CAD)

We also produce CAD (Computer Aided Design) drawings in 2D or 3D.

These drawings can be technical drawings or presentation renderings as per your requirements.

Do you need a CAD drawing to scale?

Design for Print page space design for print assets collateral print page image

We design a range of print assets from logos to business cards to brochures.

The design is key to the final printed product and the right design will show - as it will convey the image that you are looking for. It should feel right.

A good design considers many aspects that all come together to give the image that works for your brand. These aspects such as the most appropriate typeface, composition, layout, scale, colours and paper stock - all need to be carefully considered so that they achieve the result that you are looking for.

A good design is not the result of selecting from an existing gallery or template. This "clip-art" approach will only get your final layout to look just like everyone else's. This is not good design - good design must make your print look professional and stand out from the rest.

Whatever the design for print is - let us design it for you.

Business cards

A professional card means that you are serious about your business.

A professional business card is one that is designed - where the design has considered the look that you want to show. It is not simply the content on the card, it is the logo, the colours, the font, the layout (amongst other things) that all form the final look of your card.

A card that has been put through a "rush-job" or where the design elements have been picked out of clip-art or a stock library will not provide a professional or unique look. Only a professionally designed card can achieve that exceptional look that makes a lasting and positive impression with your business prospects.

Be wary of any company that offers "free design" - where they offer a design service that is not charged for. The problem with this is they do not see the value of design. The design not only determines the final look, it also represents your company's values and image. This also means that a poor design will show your company in a bad light as the design has not been carefully considered for what it needs to do. Any company that does not see the value of design should not be offering a design service.

We have seen this issue in the printing industry and it may seem obvious, but it is worth stating that if you need a design, then go to a designer and not to a printer that happens to throw in some "design" just to get your business.

Whatever the design for print is - let us design it for you.

Brochures

A professional brochure means that you are serious about and committed to your business.

It enables you to share useful knowledge about your business with your customers, keeping them up-to-date with relevant topics, news or trend information.

We can create a unique brochure that works for your organisation.

Other Print Assets

Icons

Icons are key elements of visual company branding on your product packaging. Distinctive icons create the complete look to get your brand noticed. Get ahead of the competition by using a one-of-a-kind icon set for your business.

Let us customise a distinct icon set for your business.

Letterheads and Compliment slips

Letterheads and Compliment slips are an extension of your company’s corporate identity. Business cards, letterheads and compliments slips work together with a unified logo design and are collectively called, corporate stationery. This unified design across your corporate stationery helps your brand remain consistent and produces a strong, professional image.

Technical Drawing / CAD

We can also produce presentation drawings for product mock-ups to showcase and further promote your company’s brand e.g. product packaging, gift vouchers, signage and menu design.

We can produce technical (CAD) drawings for small-scale projects. Call us to discuss your requirements.
