A brand is a number of elements rolled into one.
Image, symbol, language, name, design. All of these jigsaw pieces help make something recognisable and unique.
A brand is an identity, first and foremost.
Just like ranchers who branded cattle with their own recognisable mark to distinguish them from other herds, your brand is yours and yours alone - a unique trademark.
So, what makes a brand a brand?
Because there are brands, and then there are brands. The brands so huge they are recognised by young and old alike across all corners of the globe.
Their power moves beyond just a striking logo, or a well-chosen colour palette. Their power lies within their brand story, the associations of their brand - that unspoken public perception.
A successful brand, then, is one that is considered as a whole.
Here at 22, we don’t just want to create brands, we want to create identities and experiences.
The products we create move beyond just logos and designs. We believe a whole is greater than the sum of its parts, which is why we take a holistic approach to our branding.
Our designers, developers, marketers and copywriters all work collaboratively at every stage of our process, resulting in a cohesive end-product that is consistent across the board.
Investing in your brand is investing in your future.
A quality brand won’t have to be rebranded for years to come. A timeless visual identity will find relevance across a span of audiences and contexts.
A true branding success is marked by something that lives beyond the person who created it. An immortal creation. Just as the name ‘Disney’ has moved well beyond the individual, so too does a successful brand.
It generates a life and identity of its own.
